Bass Pro Shops XPS Casting Reel Standard Replacement Handles
Good replacement for Ambassaduers
I put the silver 4-1/8” on my Abu-Garcia C3-4600 and the 4-1/2” gun metal grey on myC3-5500. I also swapped the nut caps; I just thought it looked cool! You can tell a difference in comfort from the smaller original crank handle.

Reel Replacement Handles
I bought 2 of these handles for an Older ABU Garcia T3600 and 5500 C3 Bait Casters. I use the 3600 for Jigs and the 5500 for large baits on Carolina Rigs where heavy weights are used. Both of the reel handles fit right up. I needed them to replace the factory handles after several years of constant use. These handles spin freely and do withstand my heavy hooksets when fishing large baits. More of these handles will be in the mail to my house. I hope to see BPS add a larger Power Handle in the future. I need 2-3 for pitching and flipping sticks before summer gets here and will be looking.

Great Replacement Handle
I ordered this product and recieved in 5 days. The handle is a replacement for a Ambassadeur Royal Express (sold exclusively by Bass Pro) and it fit perfectly and looks and feels great. The handle is a little longer than the original handle but that inproves the retrieve speed. The product came with handle,handle nut,nut cover and screw to secure the nut cover. Will probably replace on the other 3 Ambassadeurs as the flat handle is more comfortable than the original round handle.

I thought I needed to file handle hole to make it fit my Abu Garcia Ambassaduer 5000. As I was looking at why the old handle and the new one looked exactly the same, I saw the set screw over the oblong threaded post. after removing the set screw, the BPS handle slipped on, very tight secure fit. I replaced the set screw, and the factory cap nut tightened right down.
The BPS is about an inch longer, but works fine!
