|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.
