9/0 A.J. Stead Reel w/Power Handle

Post by RonG »

Don't know if the handle was made by Stead, but is well made. The last photo shows a comparison with the beautiful normal handle.

Beautiful cleanup, Ron! That makes it all more believable that Stead, in fact, did it. Would be fun to do a practical test to see how much mechanical advantage that extension gives. I would suppose it might help most when retrieving line while fishing deep?
