Bass Pro Shops XPS Casting Reel Power Replacement Handles
Great Bait Casting Reel Accessory
I purchased this handle because I was recently in a boating accident that left my previous reel handle bent beyond repair. It works great and it is super smooth. I will definitely purchase additional handles as I have several other Abu Garcia reels that have either sticky knobs on the crank or just need refurbished beacuse they are older. I like the added benefit of the larger crank when puttin the skids on larger fish.

Shimano Bantam Speedmaster 2200FS Suitability
The Casting Reel Power Replacement Handles fit nicely on the drive of the Black Magnum Speedmaster BKM2200FS and the nut supplied with the handles matches the threads exactly too. The only improvement or adaptation that one could make to improve upon the handles utilization in this application would be that the small threaded hole in the crank handle to lock the handle/nut in place ideally would be made a tiny bit closer in to the drive/shaft so as to be able to engage the "Fightin" Star" drag tension adjuster and lock the tension setting in place
Other than the above, a few washers to match the drive with two (2) flat sides of the hole would be all that is needed to make the Power Handles turn this model Shimano Speedmaster reel into an improved "workhorse"..

Good replacement for your 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.

This is for a well worn ABU round baitcaster....the old handle simply wore out.
This is a good fit, and being a little longer than the original makes for more power applied to the reel and has breathed new life into an otherwise indestructible reel that has well over 15 hard years of usage, both for pleasure and tournament fishing under its' belt.
