Does anyone know to where or whom I would email so I can get the Makaira type handles to put on my Andros A's? I just love those handles! Somebody's gotta have some info? I put them on my last set of Andros but I bought entire replacement handles from Tiburon to do it. Surely there has to be an easier and cheaper way?

Tried to put one on my new Cedros but it is different. Will there be an option for this reel too?

Calling all Okuma Reps?

Anyone? Anyone......?

    Assuming handle is just simple replacement of the stock handle. No additional hardware required?

    I used a 15 and stripped the pos screw out...:(

    The other one, where I used the 20, it was perfect...:)

    Do you guys who own the new Andros recommend a pre service before taking this out on its first fishing trip.

    The only thing I did was to spray with Corrosion X or Salt X before fishing. That's it. They come with a 3 year warranty that includes free service....

    There CRC system takes care of the internals, initally. The Corrosion X before and after use will greatly enhance the reel longevity and value.
