This is a handle upgrade for your smaller Shimano reels with the small knob handles. This larger handle is more comfortable and will increase the power of every turn. 

The T-shaped knob has a 9 degree offset to increase grip and torque.  With a 110mm arm length the Shimano T-Bar Handle Upgrade allows for more power while cranking on a fish.  A great upgrade for your jigging setup, making for more comfort and ease while fishing vertically and winching big fish out of the depths. 

When fishing long hours grinding Shimano Flat-Falls, the T-Bar Handle's comfortable grip will help relieve cramping.  When that "cow" tuna does bite, you'll be ready for the long battle.
