Hey guys,

I am currently running Hawgtech 102mm handles on 3 of my big bait reels, and I wish to move away from them to something JDM. The main reason is the annoying backplay that Hawgtech handles are known for.

I am trying to figure out what my options are. I am looking at some of the older Studio Composite handles, as well as a few other options online, but its unknown if they will allow clearance for a 55mm drag star diameter.

Can anyone advise with measurements? Handles in question are:

Studio Composite RC-SC Shimano fit, 100mm

Studio Composite RC-SC Plus Shimano fit, 102mm

Studio Composite RC-DC Plus Shimano fit, 104mm

Basszone 100mm

Ray's Studio 100mm

Cheers!

I can check on clearance for most of these, but it’ll be a minute…maybe tomorrow as tonight’s my son’s birthday. Good to hear from ya, brother. You’ve been missed!!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼👊🏼

Basszone 100mm definitely won’t work with your straight drag stars.

Any ideas guys? I can't figure any other options. I want to stick to JDM, thats why I am hopeful that the Studio Composites would fit.....I really don't want to resort to Gomexus handles.

@triple_illusion I’ve been meaning to handle this…pun intended…but I’ve failed to follow through. My sincere apologies, sir. I’m gonna assume the RCSC will be your best option, but I will confirm tomorrow night. Again, my apologies for the long delay. Life, getting older and too much on my plate, make me forget things…😆

I feel you brother, I often sit and wonder just how many things I intended to do but have since forgotten. Our world/culture doesn't help either, everything is so frantic, yet dumbed down and takes forever.

Did a little photo shoot with the knobs that will be installed soon once I determine what handles will be acquired next:

I think I found the answer, on the listing on Hedgehog Studio's website, it shows "Chronarch Mg 100" as a compatible model. That reel has the exact same drag star as my Curado 300 DSV. So its a good bet the 102mm RCSC would fit. However, it does not differentiate between the 96mm and the 102mm. As they are listed together, one would assume the specs on drag star clearance are the same.

If anyone can confirm or deny, please let me know, thanks gents!
