Butt Cap

Recently, I saw in a catalog, a butt cap on a factory rod that had a dial on it with numbers on it that could be set to indicate line test on the reel. Currently, I use little stickers on my reels that I write the line test on. Thought it was a good idea. I have looked for them, but can't seem to find them. Does anyone know if there available as a rod componet? Thanks

Bob, I can't help you out, but I would like to see one of these caps. Where did you see it? Thanks, Lynn
