loop reeels

Hi Eric.
The handle position has nothing to do with the large arbour function of the reel.
It does however,affect the speed of retrieve.
With the handle on the outside edge of the spool the diameter is greater,thus it takes longer to turn a revolution = slower retrieve.
With the handle mounted more to the center of the spool the diameter is smaller, shorter revolutions = faster retrieve.
This is especially true of larger reels.
