    Nate, If you talk to Stickbom(mike) over on deepjigging.com
    (I think He's here, too) he can hook you up, but be prepared.
    I was gonna go that route & I think he said those killer handles
    cost about $150 us, plus shp from asia. mine is now for sale,
    & I've bought another Cabo to replace it. just couldn't justify
    having $300+ in a used Penn spinner, when I could buy better for less
    just my opinion, though
    tight lines

    Holy cow! I just wanted a different handle, not buy a new reel. Thats way too much for me. I'm just too tight! I'll just stick with what I have. Thanks for the responses. What washers do I need to upgrade the drag?

    As tight as you are, you must own some duct tape. Just put some around your finger and push on the spool. That's a real cheap way of increasing drag pressure. Also, very cheap.:D

    Etan,
    Just joking with you. We all have our pet pees about being cheap. I will not ever buy a cup of coffee from Starbucks. Never have, never will. Too expensive.

    I agree about Starbucks! I'm the same way about bottled water, for that price I might as well drink beer. For the price of that handle I'd rather just buy another reel.
