Few questions about EVA knobs...

Where can I get eva knobs for my BC's?
How do I switch them out?
Are most compatible with these reels: Revo SX, BPS PQ, BPS JM Sig Series
What are the advantages?

    It's really not about catching fish at all.

The only possible advantage I can see would be weight reduction, but there's such a minimal difference between a rubber knob and an EVA knob, I really don't think it would be worth the expense. The rubber knobs also seem like they'd last a lot longer.

I have an EVA knob on my Supreme XT, and I've been looking for something to replace it since the first time I used it. It feels like a little sanding block.

I like rubber knobs more because I like to put reel grips on all of my reels..

The Patriarch and Carbonlite both have handles with EVA knobs, I think you can get the handle assembly for $30-$40. I believe these would fit the Revos and PQ although I'm not 100% sure.

As for the knobs themselves, I like the EVA. I can understand the 'sandpaper' comment but like the grip and feel myself. Only concern is durability.
