 In recent year’s fisherman have been looking to gain even more advantage while fishing. In turn they have been putting longer handles on their reels to gain even more power. Also, fishermen have been experimenting with different handle knobs on their reel. We can also put a longer handle on your reel depending on which one you currently have and/or we can just change your ‘handle knob’ to one that feels more comfortable to your preference. We have done this to numerous manufacturers reels. So if your favorite reel can use a longer handle or just a different knob, you can check with us and we’ll see what we can do for you to make that reel even better.

 In doing this process, We custom build your reel so it has 1-2 pounds of drag when you put your reel just into gear. Then we build your reel for the specific amount of drag at strike that you asked for. Finally, we then build your reel so it gets at least 50% more drag when you slide the drag lever all the way to the full position.

This is the ultimate way to get the best free spool available. It’s for the fly line fishing smaller baits. This process also has the Blueprint plus built right into it. It’s only available for Penn International 50S, 50SW and all Penn 80’s.
