I have a st croix reel That I use with a 6 weight line but the handle is bent or rather the bolt/ screw that goes through the handle has become bent - probably by stupidly leaving it resting on the handle - does anyone know where I can get a replacement handle or just the screw / bolt That goes through the middle And into the spool

Thank you Easker - I have placed an order with hilevel - fingers crossed it fits.
thank you Rover - very kind offer - I will see how the handle from Hilevel works- you must be pretty skilful to be able to make a reel handle - it’s all I can do to turn one- thank you both - mike
