Bought the above to try slow pitch jigging. Can you give a suggestion for a long handle to put on it to speed the jig/retrieve?

Not really sure what your looking for here. A longer handle arm will slow down the retrieve rate but offer more power. The 2 speed function should give you the cranking power needed for a 30 lb test reel and even a light 40 lb test reel which is the place most fish then here in Southern California.

Are you looking for a t-bar type grip?

For me longer handle arms make the retrieve slower and a t-bar type grip is more awkward for faster cranking.
