    Aftermarket Replacement Handle for Shimano Spheros?

    Looks like I got a defective handle assembly for my Spheros 20000. OEM replacement handle on the Shimano website is $62.16. That's basically 1/3 the price of an entirely new reel. Just wondering if there is more cost effective replacement or a handle assembly that's so good, it's worth 1/3...

    Daiwa JDM Saltigas from Ebay?
