Good morning,

would any of you fellow tuners know if the stradic 5000fk handle assembly with type B rubber egg knob will fit on the newer 5000FL series with tiny type A foam knob? I know the knobs aren’t interchangeable but I’d hate to buy a $60+ handle assembly just to find out the threading is different. I have big mitts and the rubber egg is my preference for shimano knobs. Thanks all,

All good man, yea I’m surprised. I wound up with my own concoction as always with a custom larger Eva type A knob. No drilling involved either

It does happen sometimes and always curious why others get such good responses and others zero replies?

I think it’s timing sometimes as well!

So you prefer the larger knob, as opposed to the smaller one lol!

I’m just the opposite lol!
