They look great Ted!  Can't wait for my batch to roll in.  I know these aren't making you any dough being made completely in the U.S., but for what it's worth they are the most comfortable grips ever ever felt.  The kicker is how light weight they are.  You did real good on these.
Thanks for making them available and at such a fair price,
Dom
PS- Sweet reel Sal... I like the blue with the silver blade and the silver buttons.

Hi Ted,

The handles look great.  Now I cannot find my son's 501 width Long Beach Live Bait 259  Roll Eyes

I'll mount it on mine.  The only difference is that his is a lefty and his red spool is newer...mine if faded...

I'll take pics how it fits his hand versus mine. 

I do have a few comments though.  I'm hesitant to post it as I don't want it to be considered bashing, because it's not.  I hope it's considered constructive.  Unfortunately, I'll have to post later as something just came up that I have to attend to...I'll post it tonight along with the pictures.  When you see the pictures, you will understand some of my comments.

 If anyone has any issues with my handle assemblies, or buyers remorse, I will refund 100% of purchase price and you can keep the parts you bought.

 The knobs will be discontinued and will just be offering blades only for the foreseeable future.

Couldn't be happier with mine. Don't know what the issue is but I hope you'll reconsider. Hoping it's just a bump in the road

The original dummy (me) is late to the party...I'll be along with pics directly, but the Maxed Out handles along with Ted's clamps and shifters have really turned my builds into some serious bling, and more to come. The guy is stand-up all the way and with a true eye for detail.

Hit the parts bin Saturday to build a 4/0 for the red handle. Like a bug in a rug

Love the feel of them and can't wait to haul in a striper with one.  My body parts thank you!

 Awesome Sheridan, Adams star gives it that finishing touch

 Your red knob is a bit more cushy than the eva material.

  Hope it's not too cushy and you fall asleep while at the rail   Grin  Grin
