Default Snare Throw-off for Ludwig Acrolite

I just picked up a used Ludwig Acrolite Snare and the P-85 Strainer is all rusty and old. I've also read thet they are not the finest quality strainers anyway. So, I'm wondering what decent strainers will fit a Ludwig Acrolite 14x4.

Forum member Skitch (Mike McCraw) sells a retrofit plate so you can put a Trick strainer on there, I believe, if you really want to upgrade. Or you can get a replacement P85 from lots of the major online music retailers. I've never had issue with the P85 myself, and I played a 402 for years...

Thanks. I think that I'll just try another P 85 or maybe an 86. I just need something that works, and this one doesn't.

P-85's can be had the Guitar Center for $20, and sometimes they even have them in stock!
