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.
