handle knobs for my Stradic?

The handles on my Stradic 3000's have softened up and spread on a couple of reels. Can I replace just the knobs? Called the factory a while back about buying a handle. The price was more than I wanted to invest in the reel but now the knobs are getting soft.

    What model 3000 do you have? FI, FJ, CI4?

    Some knobs are replaceable depending on the model. This is why I asked.

    I've had the same problem many times, for me I put dish soap on the grips and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours, then wash it off, then the grip is usually good as new.
