WTB- Biomaster SW8000 handle

 Hi all

Maybe a long shot, but just wondering if anyone has a handle for a Shimano Biomaster 8000 theyd be willing to part with? Or know of an aftermarket handle and knob assembly that would fit it?

Mine had an accident (snapped at the join) a couple of weeks go


Being a mid teir reel, not overly keen on spending 1/4 price of the actual reel for a SOM etc, but if anyone has one lying around/ knows where to get one a a reasonable price, would be great

I had the same issue with my 5000 last year and Shimano still had one in stock. I just had a look and the handle from my 5000 FJ Stradic would also fit my 5000 Biomaster but the new Stradic doesn't look like it would.
