Greetings guys.

In need some assistance. I managed to break off one of the handle knobs on a Quantum PT Tour bait caster reel. The handle knobs are exactly the same as the Quantum PT Tour KVD.

I managed to get 2 spare knobs but now need the shaft for a Quantum carbon handle. It has a small Torx (6 point star) screw on the carbon handle side and a combination Philips-flat screw on the other side holding knob onto the shaft.

I presume there are 2 bearings on ether side of the handle knobs as well. Any idea where I can find a replacement shaft and bearings?

I still have the Torx screw.

Another angler with the same reel had his handle knob broken exactly the same as mind.

He had replaced the whole handle assembly when parts were easier to find.

So I basically just had to removed the remaining handle knob. Fortunately on the PT Tour they are not riveted onto the handle but attached with the Torx bolt on handle side and normal flat screw inside the handle.

Man was I relieved to have the reel on my favorite ALX rod back online!
