Does anybody know if the Echo Ion optional brass drag knob is brass in color, or black to match the reel?

Thanks, Leo.

Thank you Zack.
So the Echo site list the 10/12 at 9.3 oz. and Poppy's site list the brass drag knob at 2.3 oz. for at total of 11.6 oz. Does this sound correct?

Thanks, Leo.

I read on another board with the extra weight this reel will hang with a slight tilt. I understand the physics. Is this basically a non issue? If I get one it's going to be a mail order purchase, thought I should ask.

Thanks, Leo.

I have the heavy knob on a big Ion reel, and have not noticed it tilting the reel. To be honest though, I do not fish with this reel. It's just an inexpensive reel/spools to test different lines and heads. I've spent hours casting this reel, and didn't notice any tilt. That would not be something I would easily notice while practicing and testing.
