Looking to get komodo 463. There seems to be 3 different handle choices paddle, knob w/counterweight, power knob only. What are the positives / negatives of each?...plan on using it as a bait reel #25 or #30 lb top shots opinions ? Thanks
Im pretty sure there is only 2 handle configurations. The power handle has 2 positions (long and short). Power handle is for....guess it... power. The twin is for...speed. hahaha. Easy enough to skip a iron across the the surface with a power handle so its still fast.
Never had the reel engage during a cast so don't worry about that, it doesn't happen.
The stock power handle is great...definitely not trash, so don't need to consider that when making the choice.
The power handle is perfect for throwing bait on 30#, surface iron, yoyo jigging, casting snipers, bottom fishing.
The paddle is more for big freshwater swim baits, large plastics, large plugs, bucktails and smaller salt water fish like stuff in Florida (reds, drums, snooks, snaps, blue fish)
