Tennessee Handle

Recommended Posts

I'm curious what the age is of the board's youngest member that routinely uses a Tennessee handle rod?

42, but I don't use it for bass fishing.

 

Bottom right of the image.  I just use electrical tape to attach the reel.

Not to hijack a thread, but what is the point of a Tennessee handle anyway?

For me, its the ability to have a grip with a larger OD than is available with normal reel seats. For others, it allows them to place the reel where they want to achieve the balance they prefer.

fine tuning rod balance and easier to build.

I'm impressed... did you stumble across this rod on your own or were you influenced by an older angler?
