Types of Gomexus reel handles

We classify our reel handles into 2 types, spinning reel handles and baitcasting reel handles.

This article will discuss how to choose the right baitcasting reel handles. If you have a spinning reel, please refer to the article on spinning reel handle guide.

How to choose the correct reel handles

The most straightforward way to choose your reel handle is to check the product fitment table to find the correct handles according to your reel model. 

If you cannot find your reel model number in the product fitment table, or if you are not familiar with the reel information, please continue reading the guide.

For baitcasting reels, the shaft size is the key to make the correct and suitable choice for you. We have 2 dimensions for the shaft size, 7x4mm and 8x5mm.

So, if your shaft size is 7x4mm, just go ahead and choose from the baitcasting reel handle with 7x4mm shaft size. It will fit perfect on your reel.

If your shaft size is 8x5mm, then please choose handles with an 8x5mm shaft.

To measure the shaft size of your baitcasting reels, please follow the steps in the picture below:
