A planet, as mostly defined by International Astronomical Union, is celestial body orbiting a star or Stellar remnant that is massive enough to be rounded by it's own gravity, not massive enough to cause thermonuclear fusion in its core, and has cleared its neighboring region of planetesimals.
This is a CNC machined bearing supported handle. The plate itself for the handle is called the nebula pattern plate. The carbon fiber pieces are called the carbon beams.
They have this whole planet , star marketing theme going on. I could not make this up if I tried. I think it is safe to say that the JDM makers have great imagination ,and are dreamers in every sense.
The handles come in Red, Black,Blue, Gold , and Green. They come in left hand and right hand versions. The fit is prefect , and the nut stops right where it should, the 2 screws allen wrench in. Just a overall precise and nice package, and presentation.
There are also 2 different handles. There is a Ellispe and a Round.
Ellispe 54.4g Round 54.7 g
Grips/knobs Only 17g X2
Plate Set Only
Ellispe 20.2g Round 20.5 g
Plate Only 9.7g
Ellispe 9.7g Round 9.9 g

I think the problem is that they do not match the colors and style of the reel. Maybe on a Zillion??dampeoples wrote:Maybe it's just me, but that's the ugliest handle I've ever seen on anything, even my toilet.
It is not designed to be pretty. Think space , and equipment used in space. ;)This was a pretty deep thinker, probbaly not much unlike Mr. Ito.dampeoples wrote:Maybe it's just me, but that's the ugliest handle I've ever seen on anything, even my toilet.
They are clayish red , far from pink. It is just the lighting, I can not get it right. Think Mars, I willl try and get a different picture , in different lighting.hobobob wrote: I second that motion. what's up with the pinkish knobs?
Now it is the camera angle. I used it to show the handle, not the reel. To funnydampeoples wrote:You might be right, it's certainly gaudy on that Calais, the knobs look as large as the spool!

Not sure where it will land evenually. It is a shimano only, maybe a CORE, maybe a Speedmaster . I am getting a gold one for my DC reels.Papageno1791 wrote:I think the problem is that they do not match the colors and style of the reel.

at ~54.4g that is one solid piece of work, fractions of a gram heavier than the CVX power handle. are the knobs comfortable though?
