Anyone else know where to get the neatest accessories for rods, reels, etc?
I suspect you are talking about the little black plastic handle on your Allen reel?
Stabilized wood, is treated to where the wood basically has the propertiess of hardened plastic due to the resin impregnation process. The wood will never get truly wet and swell and crack from moisture.
I am sure someone makes a custom reel handle if you dig enough. I wouldn't mind one myself for my Trout II.
