I like the reel, but can't fall in love with the small handle. I found out that the Saragosa handle fits it fine and will call Shimano tomorrow to see what they cost, but otherwise, I'm curious what my handle upgrade options are.

Thanks to Taz575 for helping me upgrade the drags to greased Carbontex washers.

thanks,

John

I got a Saragosa handle today in the mail. All is well.

I went through the schematics of the Saragosa vs. the Spheros. All I could find different of any real significance is a one bearing near the main gear. I was going to call Shimano and get the price so my Spheros would functionally be a Saragosa.:) :) :)

Otherwise, I really don't know how Shimano can justify the huge price difference.

Heck, I bought my Spheros new off Ebay for $139.00.
