Not sure if I like it or not. Feels like it's missing something. Maybe just needs a gunmetal but retainer plate instead of the purple. Plus I scratched up the drag star πŸ˜₯ (should have put more than one layer of tape before bending it since it was pretty soft metal). I was gonna buy a swept version anyway just wish I could find a gunmetal one with black in the middle instead of red like the on on the px68.

Thanks guys. It is one of my favorites.

Do you think it needs more purple (knob caps, screws, level wind screw).

Or maybe some gold parts instead to go with the line guide.

I think gold would do it for me.

Personally, I would swap in a gunmetal retainer screw and look for a purple drag star (if they make them). Then it would be perfect I think. Looks great as it is now though for sure.

Yeah, a gunmetal screw would be better. I was looking at the hedgehog drag star as well. We'll see. I'm kinda thinking champagne gold knob caps but I'm gonna try to change the color on the computer first and see how it looks.

Good idea to mock it up on your computer first.
