Need longer handle for Antares AR (calais 100A)

Postby skunked » Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:42 am

Can anyone tell me the options for a longer handle? Do I have to stick with the hidden nut design (not a fan) or can I convert to the standard exposed nut type of handle? Would a curado handle and nut work, or are there more parts needed? The AR is my favorite reel, but I always wished it had a longer handle. Thank you.

The handle not the AR makes the hidden nut design unique. Most all other Shimano handles should fit just fine along with any aftermarket handles made to fit Shimano.
