CF handle color?

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Anybody know if it's possible (or available) to have a dark blue CF handle?

It's possible to make one of any color you want. Get a piece and cut a handle
It will not be swept. Seen a few guys make 1/12 scale rc parts with cf blank material and a router.
They said it took some practice and sharp high quality bits.

This website has all kinds of material and just the first one I pulled up.
I would be looking for a solid plate about 1/8th.

Not that this helps, but I have yet to see one ever. Not saying it couldn’t be done...

I have actually seen silver and gold ones before on those cheap Chinese reels on Aliexpress, so colors are possible. That being said, it would likely be cost-prohibitive to get a one-off custom color handle made.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

yeah I kinda figured it was a no go. I was looking for a dark blue one just to match some blue stuff.
