Any Exage reel lovers here?

Well I am, and I though I'd share whats about to come. Stradic or Rarenium lovers better sod off as this isn't tarty enough for you.... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Anyway back on topic, anyone remember the older model of exages (RB/FB) not the newer one (RC/FC) but mainly the FB models and how they came with a double handle and not the single handle which the FC comes as...... well to say I ain't as fussed with it but I recently found out the RC double handles are also able to fit on the FC models of reels. I ordered the 2500/3000 handle from eBay (shimano place in swansea) and hey presto it fits.....

I managed to have a session with it today trying out the newly aquired 2'' fishunters (Blanked) but despite the cold hands from the wind being channeled through the cut, I will say the reel felt more balanced than the single and in honesty I can't see it coming off the reel.

heres some pics,







like I said just thought I'd give a heads up on the double handle as I know some people prefer them over a single handle
