Can somebody give me advise?
Some time ago I bought Okuma Connoisseur 10' ML for medium and small striper. Almost everything was going well.. except the handle: it is Michigan handle.
This winter tried it for winter carp, and really like the blank action a lot! Guides are fine, too. But the handle is a problem!
Desperately need rear grip to be at least couple inches longer! Now it is classical michigan 4", and I really need 8"at least.
One way is to replace the whole handle, and I've done it couple times. But may be, there is some easier way?
Any advise will be greatly appreciated!

Wow! Never saw anything like this extension! smile
Thank you!
Have to learn more about it to understand if it will work in my particular case.
But now I want to build another one, with this MRF system. Should be fun! smile
