Ive been working on a new design for the offset handles.  The design I was using on the bigger reels doesnt work as well when scaled down.  So I went with something a that's closer to what most production reels now use. 

Like it or dont like it, Id like to hear your thoughts on the design.  I have thought about adding a second hole for the gear sleeve so you could choose between longer or shorter.  Is that something you would like to see?

I like it Adam. How about a full radius on the end instead of being squared off. I think it would blend better. Just an opinion though. My new knobs would look great on that handle.
All the best,  ..  Lou

I like it as well Adam. I'm with Lou on the end, a radius would look better there

The offsets work nice. I have been using the Torium 30 handles since trying one from Ulua Junkies. These handles are balanced perfect for a Newell. They are chromed brass and very sturdy. SS of course is always more appealing.

I updated the design of these, and will be offering them to fit 112H/jigmaster, 113H, and Newell reels initially.  Ill work on fitments for the  6/0 and the daiwa 600h/900h soon. 

With the handle set to the short position, its a little shorter than the Sal's Handles, and on the long position its about 5/8" longer. 

Ill have these available soon, I need to check on material pricing before I finalize the price.  Im expecting around $21 for the newell and 113H sizes, and $20 for the 112H/jigmaster sizes though. 

I do have 7 of the ones in the first picture (with the single position) available for a 113H now.  They are not listed on my website, PM me if you want to order.  Price will be $17 each plus shipping.
