When I did my 30 H I asked Alan for advice and at that time they weren't any arms out there, so he recommended cutting off the old handle and replace with a  3/0 Kokler, which I fi9nd to be about the right size. I will take picture of it when I get home from work.

IMHO, you will be restricted to the short arm length of the original 30H factory part. The 3/0 Kolekar grip will also weigh more than the one removed so the balanced aspect will be gone as well.

Going the modified Penn Type A handle arm route is the best over all option, again, IMHO...

Hey guys,

I just purchased a 30H super hi speed.

It looks to be in good condition.

Did anyone determine how much drag this reel gets???

Looks like a good candidate for a stainless gear sleeve (need them made) and bigger handle.

What do you guys think??

Fish mine as a 40lb reel. By hand, can get star tightened to 16.5 lbs; could probably get a bit more if using something to leverage and button down it, but 12 lbs from top of spool is all I need. The handle arm I am using is aluminum. Is the type of brass in the 30H harder? Can't say but there has been no deformation in the 3 years I've used it, so a steel gear sleeve seems to be overkill.

Could push it up to a 50 lb top shot but that would be a splice to 50 lb braid main. Even then, the 16.5 lbs would be enough.

The handle upgrade is a must, IMHO.

YMMV...

I was just looking at the holes for a 50h bridge. they seem to match the holes for the super hi speed 30sh... if that is the case, we could use a 50h bridge with a 50h sleeve to use a 50h handle without carving new handles... I will have to take a close look tomorrow.

has anyone else with a 30sh seen this?Huh?

The bridge wont work.

See the cortez page for a custom sleeve possibility.

Hey Porthos, thanks for all your research and postings on the Sealine reels! 

I have a 30H and am thinking of using it as a heavier surf rod for sharking (up to six feet NJ).  Do you think this reel be used for distance casting?  I'd be throwing "8 and bait"  (up to 8 oz sinker and a big chunk of bait).  Any opinion on cast-ability?

Haven't casted the 30H or SMF175 for distance. Just did enough to get the bait fish away from the boat. Would say they probably have the same performance as the Monofils, Surfmasters, and Jigmasters given the bearing types and overall size.
