EVA foam knobs are a welcomed addition


I have always leaned more towards EVA foam handle knobs for one simple reason: My hand doesn’t slip off when it’s wet or covered in fish slime. I was pleased to see these on this reel and they give it a more cohesive feel in your hand. I haven’t been busting any of my knuckles on the drag star when setting the hook, which has actually been a fairly obnoxious problem for me in the past.
