I bought a couple from Amazon, but I find they don't last very long before they get "rounded out" where they connect onto the reel, and then they just spin on the reel...

Figure someone must make a more permanent handle...

Try Tiburon T Bar. Randy is going there tomorrow let him know if you want one. Vintage Offshore Tackle

You could also try one of these

These are Titanium and weight about 1oz without the knob.
If interested, contact Adam at the for sale section under Motive Fabrication.
As for knobs your options are many.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

I'm pretty sure I've had the T bar handles before...and they have worn away. But thanks for the suggestion..

Sal - I'm loving the titanium handles, so will contact Adam. I'm curious about the knobs though....

Your handle(the female part) "rounds out", before the gear sleeve(male part)?

Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

Correct. The "squarish oval" hole on the handle blank becomes more circular. Then the handle just "spins" on the reel.

This has happened to all 6 or so of the ones I have bought over the years.
