New style handle kit to fit alot of Hardy reels.
The handle appears to be a light color bamboo (possibly made of fiberglass, really hard to tell), the base is a really nicely machined brass, and the post is brass as well.
This kit requires the excess post material to be cut off and polished after installation. One would use pliers or such to grab the exposed post to tighten the post (use thread lock on the threads). Then cut off the excess close to the knob, polish the top, and go fishing :)
If you need (or want) to re-thread the hole in your spool, the post threads appear to be 5-40tpi
The pictures really don't do this part justice...knobs are more bamboo in color than they show!
