I'd worry more about losing the little knurled lock nut for holding the drag adjusting knob onto the spindle more than about the Madoff connection... and I own, let me see now, (goes to spreadsheet of reels...) too many reels made by Abel to wear ONE out, let alone all of them!
Oh, and their Quick Change Series made that little knurled nut problem go away.

And they have a great video showing what goes into making them. Check it out. Jeff posted it here.
