Default Roller Handle

Any one use a roller handle on their press? I'm half-way considering one but even at 15% off $60 for a bent steel rod with a handle seems a bit much after tax and shipping. Yeah I'm cheap.

have one on my Dillon and really like it.
None on my single stage presses. Had one with a straight handle and mounted an 8-ball on it from a pool table.

There is two advantages to that handle.
Roller is nice.
The bend in the handle keeps you from leaning down to the right each time you pull the handle.

I had a friend that owns a fabrication shop put a bend in my original handle. Made a big difference.

Thanks for all the input.
I have the press mounted pretty high (built my own strong mount) so the plate is only about 6" below eye level at the top of the stroke so the bend in the lever to raise it up is really a non issue and may raise it too high for good leverage. I ended up buying just the roller handle and I'll make an adapter to fit it to the existing straight arm and start with that.

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and the Inline Fab handle on my old Rock Chucker is great. I added a foam sleeve I found on Amazon, makes it even gentler on my hand and wrist.

I couldn't figure out how to put a ball on my Lee hand primer, God knows I tried. How did you do it?

If you intend to load 500-1000 rounds in one sitting then yes, please save your wrist and get it. I deprime/resize on a separate tool head from my pre-set dies. Double the work? Probably but I like my brass shiny!

Before I mounted to the desk perm. I installed the roller handle.

I am not sure if it is better, as I never used the knob-handle.

I prefer the ball knob, no roller. I have 2 presses with rollers and I grip them by the bend. Better feel and has less lateral leverage to reduce the torque on the linkage which also eliminates rotation of the carrier. Feels more solid and less stress on the press.

i had a roller handle on the Forster Co-Ax and to be quite honest with you it wasn't all that great at least for that particular press. it was easier for me when the handle was axial with the requisite excursion. ultimately i've replaced it with the factory standard handle. my neighbor however was very happy to inherit it.

I tried a roller on a Hornady LNL, and went back to the stock handle. Honestly, I think the preference will be determined by the height of the press relative to your seat. If the press is high, youíll prefer the roller. If your eyes are above the level of the dies, the stock handle will probably perform better.
