I’m trying to source a power handle for my Shimano Tranx 201A low profile baitcaster.
I use this for slow/micro jigging and feel a power handle would work better than the paddle handle in this application.

Grappler 300HG handle might work, unsure if the driveshaft diameter is the same though. Be worth giving Shimano a ring/email.

8mm shaft on that on Tranx 200 is 7mm. Found a gomexus one on Alibaba. I’ll post when I get it hopefully works always nervous getting stuff from China.

Pretty sure the 300 sized baitcasters have a different sized shaft, I put a Shimano Genpu 200 power handle on my curado 200 so I think that would be a good option.
New Genpu has a nice Ci4 handle on it.

Cheers.
