Looking to change the tension knob on a Curado BFS to match the rod it's on. Can anybody confirm if the Curado and SLX parts are identical? I swapped tension knobs between the Curado 70 MGL and BFS with no issues, hoping that the new SLX 70 has the same dimensions (cause that blue accent is what I'm looking to add). For reference, tension knobs from the pre-MGL Curado 70 fit, but the reel doesn't perform well when cranking. Met20 and Aldebaran seem to have a different size.

I do not have access to a BFS to check. The knob does appear to be similar on the SLX 70 and the Curado 70 MGL.

You can replace it. I have both slx and curado.
They are identical twins.
