It's a Steez handle with RCS cork knobs and the original star drag which was slightly bent to fit the handle.

The best way to bend those tines back is to start with the star on the reel. Put a piece of electrical tape folded over the tine. Take an adjustable wrench and slide it up to where the tip is about even with the narrowest part. Tighten down the wrench until it is snug, then put slow steady pressure on it. Careful not to go too far, as it will hit the cc cap. I just did this last night on a Pixy.

Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Thank you. One of my Sons is a nut about Orange so this was perfect for him. I ended up liking it so much that I am building another for me and my other righty Son to share.
