I have one coming should be here soon. I first bought the 90 mm flat handles and was impressed with them. I then ordered the swept version. A very sensible design without a gaudy nut retainer :whistle:

Re: Semperfi handles?

Side by side Semper Fi handles blows away a recent player on the scene. Thickness is thinner and width is narrower. Weight difference of 4.7 grams lighter and the use of a knockoff nut retainer. Who knows maybe sourced from the same vendor in Asia. :big grin: Will buy more of them after seeing in pe...

Re: Semperfi handles?

Does anyone know if there are carbon handles that will fit a Calcutta 100 DC? I tried the standard ZPI for shimano and the Hawgtech for Shimano and there seems to be a clearance problem with the drag star on the DC reel. Is there are workaround for this? http://www.semperfi-tackle.com/2013/image/ca...

Re: Handle Nut (BNT2417)

I ordered them directly from Shimano. Still in the bag marked Handle Nut BNT 4039. I have updated a few older pre D series reels. I plan to retap threads to make use of them.

No they are not all the same ](*,) I bought some aluminum handle nuts for a Core and they will not thread onto the older driveshafts.

Re: more parts

I am quite well aware of your Semper Fi handle collection Patrick ](*,) I care about the weight of aftermarket Carbon Fiber handles. If their going to weigh more than a Factory handle then why bother changing and spending the $$$$. I don't care about having shelf queen reels none of mine are picture...

Re: more parts

A couple questions about the straight Semper Fi handle ? It looks much narrower than the latest rage Tech handle. What is the weight compared to the Tech handle ? Is the locking plate the same as Factory Shimano ? I hear that Tech is revamping their handle design. The Tech nut cap size kills their d...

Re: My custom CU-100B

I found that the E/G series drag stars bottom out on the side cover. I am using Ch 50 MG drag stars instead with Curado 50 E handles with bushing replaced with another bearing.

Re: Semperfi handles?

I agree the nut retainer is the issue. The handle width is needed use that retainer. It would have been better to use a Shimano nut retainer (Core) / Plastic Nut cap retainer (Most Shimano) setups. Neither is a large space eater. Drill and thread for using the Shimano screws. IMO this would be a muc...
