never give up hope. ..."tuna's reel trouble" has handles for shimano 100 & 200g. the handles are $20.00. the lever arm is longer than stock arm and weighted for balance. some of the calcutta handles will work too. there is no better handle for this reel thn alan's 2/0. period. however, if you don't mind spending more for the handle than you paid for the reel, buy the tunasreeltrouble handle and drill out the knob from the arm and replace with alan's. that would be an ass kicking reel. i like the feel of the stock arm with alan's 2/0 better. i have 8 200g's and 8 100g's all with modified handles.
I just went thru two tr 100's didnt change the bushings to bearings but did change out the drags
with carbontex washers, much better. For the handles I put on the 2/0 handles Alan has for sale.
They are very nice!
I was looking for a longer lever arm. Not having much hope.
