I like newells, the only thing i hate are the handles for the type of fishing that I do. Any good aftermarket handles out there that do not defeat the purpose of a lightweight graphite reel? I thought i remember seeing aluminum handles somewhere but that would feel kinda funny being that much heavier. Also, what is the narrowest version of the 300 series?

Two questions here.

1/ Go to the Allcoast Tackle board and search for and then send Jerry Downie/"Reelman" a PM regarding his custom Newell handle knobs. They are much nicer to use and are a direct bolt-on most any Newell handle arm, other than the old Blackies with the aluminum arms.

Think sort of a cross between an old Penn torpedo and a current Saltiga handle - very nice stuff. I have them on all four of my toggin' 220's. They are ridiculously inexpensive for what you get.

2/ Narrowest 300 series is the 322. There used to be a 300, but I think that was the same width as the current 322.

best, Lep

We stock the Newell handle from Tiburon. It is a direct fit for 200 and 300 reels.

If these are the handles with the 9degree off set, they are well worth the money. [img]thumb.gif[/img]

The TIB handle is awesome, used it the other day on a 338 codfishing caught a whole bunch on the jig and it cranked em up no prob. A little pricey but well worth it in my eye.

I agree thats its comfy to crank up fish with but b/c of the weight in the knob , it has a tendency when casting to gain momentum, rotate over, and smack you on the top of the right hand. More of a nuisance than a serious flaw. Maybe it balances better on the wider/bigger reels.

Default I can see that I'm in the minority here, but . . .

I'm gonna keep on pitchin'.

For what you will spend, there is no better handle upgrade for a 200/300/400 Newell.
