Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Casting Reel Power Replacement Handles
Finally a nicer and cheaper alternative
I sold my RH Abu 6500 and got the LH 6501. But I didn't keep the power handle that I had put on it and needed one for the new reel. I came across this one and thought it looked nicer than the other power handle. The reviews all said it would fit my reel, and it did. It fits like a stock handle but looks very nice. The chrome cap is an improvement over the plastic cap that comes with the other version of the power handle. I was originally worried I wouldn't like the dual knob setup but it turns out to be just fine. I never notice the other end of the handle while reeling. This handle looks better in my opinion and costs about $5 bucks less than the power handle I had on my other reel. I hated to have to spend $20 bucks just to upgrade the handle on a $100 dollar reel, but this handle takes some of the sting away. Nice color options too. I went with silver, but I think the other colors would have looked nice too.

Does NOT fit SHIMANO...boo
I purchased two of these for two of my SHIMANO reels. A Bantam 50 and a Curado EJ. The hole is TOO BIG. Buyer BEWARE. "Universal design fits MOST reels", keyword being M-O-S-T!
