I don't think I need to have a debate with you whether or not I think the handle is too short.
Anywho, I'm just going to make my own. Stay tuned.
handle is too short for any application, especially a 2 speed capable of fishing 40lb with a 6:1 gear ratio.
Will the handles be interchangeable? If so, how much longer will the 12ii handle be than the 5ii and when can we order one?
Robert / Bill- How much longer is the handle from spindle centerline to grip?
