Howzit guys,

Some assistance please.
I have manufactured these power handles for the TLD 20 and 25, Saltist 50, and Grandwave 50.

In your opinion, which other reels would benefit from this?

Thanks
Bennie

At the moment we are doing it for multipliers but naturally the spinning reels will follow. I would like to sort all the multipliers first though.

Well the old Jigmaster 500 has possibly the worst handle of the lot, so a comfortable power handle would be a plus. But dont think many guys use those reels anymore.
The SL50 would do nice with one of them. Both have brass gear shafts though, so would have to be gentle with the extra leverage i guess.

Do you think the benefit in this handle lies in a more comfortable grip, or in a longer arm that allows you to apply more torque on the reel?

Just like upgrading drag washers, doesn't give your reel more torque or power.

It is about comfort. Those little handles that come on so may reels give you a cramp right in the palm of your hand. This will eliminate it and give you more controle over the lever and reel which in turn makes it more stable and puts less lateral force on the reels shaft.

Shot Bennie. Beautiful work. You just gotta love a man with a CNC anything. I don't have any of the above reels but those mods are so lekker I actually want to go out and buy one to suit the handle.

Guys,
First off, the handle's specs before I give you the price.
The Main shaft and arm is CNC machined from solid High grade aluminium stock bar, The aluminium is pickled to remove impurities, brush polished and then anodised. The Handle is machined from solid High Density Polyethlene. It hase a lubing chanel accessably via a removable plug on the back of the handle. The internal parts are from grade 316 stainless steel.

Forgot to mention Bluecity is the distributor of the handles... Please contact AndriesH on this site!

We can make them to suit just about any reel.
All I need is to get my hands on the reel to measure the shaft!
