- Please!

I have this lovely dinky little reel which would be perfect to pair with a Drennan Puddlechucker bomb rod.
But the reel came with a double handle, and I can't get on with it.
Anybody recommend a source where I might find a single handle which will fit this reel, please?

might be able to do a swap/loan for one of mine - if you get no better offers bring it to our next meeting - but remind me before.

I'm like you and have a loathing of double handles, I got a single from Felindre for my Shimano, bloomin expensive though!

The ST2500 is a single handled baitrunner, would the handle from one of these fit?
I would not contemplate a double handled reel, no advantage to me, a good quality reel should be well balanced so will not have an issue with the handle falling to the bottom. I have tried double handles and can never seem to make up my mind which handle to go for and just end up missing both

I now have one on order from Felindre Innovations (ex Shimano Felindre), £14.38 delivered, not too bad at all, and very quick to respond.

Well done, I paid a lot more, slightly different model though.

Handles all over the place! Awful.
