I'm sure they are fine, however the say the screws that hold the cover on aren't long enough. That is why I asked for one that came with all necessary hardware

You use the same screw that's on your current reel handle cap. Don't over tighten and strip the threads.

I bought the Abu ones off of Amazon and they worked fine.

you can get just a hair longer screw for the cap at your local bolt and screw specialty shop..there a lot cheaper i get mine from shamrock bolt and screw company....along with other screws for the reel...


If it ain't broke don't fix it...but go ahead and work on it anyway.....
