oh it came off from the used cortez 12 i bought....call okuma as they may have it on sale...
I agree, I much prefer the knob over ball.
Yes that looks about the same as the knob on the Cortez 10 handle. The other day it was very damp from heavy fog and my hands were covered with scales while I was fly lining sardines. This "knob" was just perfect in those conditions. Can't imagine any round knob being better.....especially those metal ones. I have an almost identical set up with a Lexa 400 Winn.......and even it wasn't near as nice. It sat in the rack most of the day.......... To me with this handle mod the Komodo is Mo'betta.
I contacted Okuma today and the new handles are not in. Tired of waiting so ended up getting two cortez 10 handles.
I just got my 2nd Cortez handle from Okuma, p.n.#15000454
Grind (Dremel tool) the side closest to the retaining screw and everything lines up perfect!
I called the office and place an order over the phone. Give them a call, they are extremely helpful.
For anyone who is interested in getting upgrading the power handles for the Komodo, look into the Ccrtez handle! You can get the handle from Okuma for $15 plus shipping and tax. It took them a week to ship as one of their parts guy was out. Thanks to the other member who discovered this. Just couldn't wait any longer for the "new" Komodo handle.
The only modification you need to do is file the side closet to the tap hole until you're able to install the handle onto the shaft. Use existing hardware and you'll have one badass reel!
I'm looking at the Cortez 10 handles and there seems to be two different part numbers. #15000454 for the Cortez CZ-10CSa, and #15000370 for the Cortez CZ-10CS. Anyone know the difference? Can I assume that it's the same part, but different color handle?
Something to remember when you grind anodized aluminum... The ground area will begin to corrode immediately...
I just installed a Gomexus handle and knob on my 471.
Perfect fit and no modification was necessary.
Put it into the 2nd hole on the new handle to balance out.
Cool upgrade! I like the all black color. Unfortunately its not yet in existence when I tried it couple of years ago hence just used the Red Cortez 12 handle!
Where did you get this handle? I may want to snag one if I get rust issues on my grinded out handle. Is this the one on amazon?
