I've tried emailing a couple reel places directly but no responses yet. Does anyone know if there are aftermarket reel handles available for a Curado 100B? I have two and they're a two of my favorite reels even though they are "outdated." I would like to upgrade to a newer, slightly longer reel handle (and star drag if need be) though but don't know where to start online. Would appreciate any first-hand knowledge.

Hawgtech has a few options in carbon fiber handles: length, style, and knob type.  You can also custom the accent colors on their handles, star drags, spool caps, etc.

Also, any straight Shimano handle will fit.  I have a Chronarch 200E handle on mine. It looks like it was designed to be there.  I  also have a Chronarch 50 MG spool in mine which makes it a completely different animal. Casts as well as my newer stuff. I find myself reaching for it all the time over my Ald 50.

love my 101b!  i have a swept 96mm handle on mine, but i put an aftermarket drag star on it to allow for the swept handle.  you can get a 94mm (i think) straight handle from hawgtech and they are legit!

Thanks! I placed an order with hawgtech and can't wait to swap out the handles.
