    So....just did some work on a Favero reel and saw that they have removed the carrying handle.

    I asked Favero about it and they said it was removed for "aesthetic reasons."

    I told them they need to put it back, as the ability to carry a large and heavy item was far more important than looks that the handle wasn't really affecting anyway.

    No one -- not even Favero -- carries the handles and mounting hardware as a separate item.

    Any suggestions where I could get a few comparable ones? They're mounted in the lid, so drilling holes and mounting them should not really present an issue.

    Thanks....looked in the handles section, but can't see the type that's close to the Favero. Would like to keep the profile similar so it fits for those who DO have the plastic carrying case.

    On the other hand, now I have a place to look for gears for a project for my wife;s candy biz!

    Do a search on internet or Amazon for "suitcase handles". You'll find quite a few sources.
