    TLD Handle upgrade - Latest info

    Hi all, who has some recent info regrading upgrading a tld handle. Wanting more leverage and also a knob handle. I'm based on the Sunshine Coast. I'm happy to install it myself if it's relatively easy.

    Just get a Tyrnos handle and swap it straight over. if you have the box that the TLD came in it has a tool in there to take the handle off.

    Bluebottle fishing have a few options. I've used a few of the T-bar replacements. The Tyrnos handle is a good option as well. Think from memory when I did mine the nut locking assembly also needed replacement (been a while though)

    Mate I wanted to do the same thing, I googled it and an old ausfish forum popped up from about 10 years ago on how to do it yourself, search "modifying TLD for deep water" or something around them lines

    JClay, I recently upgraded my TLD 20 handle to the Tyrnos 20 handle. It is easy to replace the handle, but you will need the tool that came with the TLD to do it as well as a small Phillips head screw driver.

    Below are the part numbers and costs from the email they sent me. You can contact shimano directly.

    Cheers, Andrew

    Handle - TGT0775 $46.20. Locking nut - TGT0851 $10.78. Postage $5.50.

    Regards.

    Another option below. I've got various handle upgrades from Alan over the years, product and service is A1. I prefer long in the palm offset style grips, not sure he does a knob style or not. Note Alan is on A/F.

    Thanks for all the help on this.

    Ordered the handles last Fri direct from Shimano. Arrived Mon morning. 4 handles, handle bolt and screw were $244 delivered. Took about 1min per reel to attach. Can't wait to get the boat out and onto some fish.
