Bass Pro Shops® Casting Reel Power Replacement Handles
I picked up a couple of these earlier this year to upgrade some ABU musky reels. Liked 'em so much I got three more.
Easy to replace, comfortable, durable (so far) and priced right.

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!

Works great! Easy to install on my Ambassadeur 5000.

no, it won't. unfortunately, shimano goes its own way with a crankshaft on their low-profile reels that is smaller than the crankshaft on BPS, browning, ABU garcia, daiwa quantum and pflueger reels. these handles will fit all the others but not the citica even though the description and package says it fits shimano.
