    Just buy an extra handle for your current one and attach it. The idea is to allow one hand to rest while you crank with the other.

    To bad that reel isn't super huge. If it was the new stella 900000000, you could peddel it with your feet like a bicycle.

    MrBill,

    Shimano makes bicycle parts, I think that's what inspired them to come out with this model LOL.

    We will need a seat on the rod.

    I would love to have that same problem jt2hunt :)

    Nice idea Minnow. I wonder if Snagged is right. I need to try this on my 9500.

    Cool beans Jerry.

    I gotta wonder if the antireverse bearing on the new reels could be adapted to the older reels...
