A custom handle for ultralight fishing, which one better?

Post by wirinhar » Tue Sep 25, 2018 11:47 pm

Hi guys,

Will you consider a spinning custom handle such as livre handles (Wing92/39grams, 80/38grams, 72/37.7grams) which is 2x more weight than the original spinning reel handle???

Also will you prefer a longer or shorter handle for the ultra light or light fishing?.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
WW

what reel are we enhancing? some are fine/excellent as is. some need a little help.
i like stradic 2000's as they are. my cardinal 3's and 4's have been given bigger handles and metal spools.

I’ve been researching double handles for a couple of years now. I guess what has kept me from getting one is the cost......along with the fact will it do what many of the articles I’ve read suggest it will do. If it upped my sensitivity.....as is the claim.....I would get one tomorrow. But I have never talked to anyone who has tested one out and had an opinion on sensitivity. I think for those who back reel using an UL it should give you better balance and smoother operation. It’s like everything else involving this JDM road I have gone down.....I’m just going to have to eventually buy one so I will know and can speak to what it does and or does not do.
