I am not a retailer, just a keen fisherman but I have started to bring in fishing reel handles (Large T-bars and Circular) and blanks from the States.
These handles make the perfect upgrade to your existing reel.
For example, I had a Shimano Tyrnos 12 reel, but the handle and blank (the shaft) were not really suitable for mechanical jigging even though the reel has good speed and a great drag. The new blank adds extra length for additional torque and the handle increases comfort for longer jigging sessions.
The difference has been HUGE, and it can turn most reels into serious jigging weapons.
The knob incorporates a 9 degree offset to provide increased torque. The knob is constructed of 6061 Aluminum and incorporates a ball bearing in the shaft. This hollow aluminum knob is extremely light weight and incredibly comfortable.
The handle, by itself, can be made to fit most existing blanks by drilling or filing out the hole to fit, but the simpler option is to buy the handle and blank together. This assembly can simply be screwed onto your existing reel with no damage to the original handle and blank. For example, it is a good option if you want to use one handle for jigging and then swap over to the original if it is better suited for trolling. All blanks are made especially for your model reel and are made out of 7075 (much stronger than 6061) aluminum.
Add some power (and all important bling) to your reel!!
If you are interested send me a PM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – Priced from $49 for the handle and $69 for handle and blank – my prices can not be beaten
