    That handle is exactly like Tuna Max handle at half the cost and come with two ball bearing.
    Arthur Wu is a good guy, he's fisherman also at west-coast.
    I purchased a lot of reel handle from him and other fishing stuff.

    They are copies of JM LT51 which I sell at $55.
    LT51 is old model made of alluminum while LT61 and LT81 is stainless. I am sure some guys will copy LT81 soon.
    They are trying to copy every JM products like JM fighting belt, JM bags or JM rods/blanks. JM products must be good. :)
    I can not compete for prices with ebay sellers who don't have much overhead cost and who can sell anything.
    The only ways I can compete are personal after-service and quality control.
    JM rods/blanks which are sent to me are tested twice by machine individually by JM. And I test any rods/blanks with my hands before shipping.
    All JM reels are checked one by one and are upgraded before selling.
    Fortunately, I have been encouraged that there are many fishemen who want authentic and original products.

    Believe me or not, all of those aluminum handle is not copied.
    They're from the same manufacture company and just name it with yours :)

    Freddy is right, all made in the same plant overseas.

    One customer brought a similar handle to me and I saw the shaft was not the same and it didn't fit perfectly. I had to use JM shaft to fix the problem.

    Make sure you get the right shaft for Saltiga.
    It seems they are giving a shaft for Accurate. You don't need extra ball bearings for Saltaga as you can use two ball bearings in the original Saltiga.
    For Accurate, you change inner shaft, but you use inner shaft of Saltiga.

    I was wondering since there are many knock off handles if anyone has tried these.Looking for a saltiga 6000 handle and the price looks right...Anyone?

    They are not knock off handles but genuine JM handles.
    I made an inquiry about the seller and found the seller is a legitimate JM dealer in Singapore. The LT51 model is discontinued model and they must have many inventories to sell them cheap. Go and get them. the price is unbeatable. I have some LT51 models, but I am concentrating on selling LT61 and LT81 as they are more favored by fishermen.
    JM introduced new LT91 models and I am going to get them soon.
