Iíve seen a lot of these on Penn reels in the overseas market. Specifically in Japan.

Thatís where I got it.
Not many I have seen that are a factory Penn part though.

Penn 570 is all I know about it.
That and any Senator I have seen here with this type of handle is stupid expensive.
Luckily it is on a very good condition 9/0!

 It sure looks cool. I've seen these on several Japanese Penns. The lever kit was sold separately as an add on. The kit included the small lever, and the handle/knob assy. The way it works is drag gets tighter as more tension is added, then move handle back a hair and drag will loosen, but not by much. If it's something heavy and you crank very hard, it'll go into full drag really fast. The catalog I have shows it was only available for 6/0-9/0, and small conventional Penns. No kit for 113h according to the mid 70's Japanese/Penn catalog

 Shark hunter has a 9/0 with this lever kit. I'm pretty sure it's not one he uses. Better for display and good conversation piece.

 Hi Jay, 3 of those MTL reels went to members here, and other 3 are hiding away in a cupboard. We appreciate you offering them up to only the Ohana. That was a real life gold mine you found !!

I'm gonna get a couple more to put on builds. I'll keep one 9/0 as it sits since it is a Japanese market reel that the handle is on.
