Well, after three walmarts later i found it with all its glory (no missing knobs). Just a tip for anyone getting a baitcaster and has never had one, there is a little knob that adjust how fast the spool line is released, well make sure its not umm very loose or you will do what I did. BIRDS NEST and I didn't even throw it out. I'm sure that will be the last one I ever have so no complaints out of me. HA .. Anyway I love it. Can't wait to use it!!
