Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Thirteen Reels I have Power Handles on the following: Four 4601C3's, two RCN51's, two 5601C4's and two RCN61HC's and I am right handed, so you know I am smarter than most anglars. I do have to admit like the one review pointed out about the left handed reels, the brass and reverse threaded on the left hand version. I almost screwed up on the first one. Plus, I have three Revo Inshore with large EVA knobs which are fantastic, and don't need the Power Handles. I wish Abu made them an item in Eqipment! Hint, Hint! The power handles make for a long day fishing a lot better, especially for the big ones. Thanks Abu

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wingman24 from Great power for Rockfish and Lingcod! I fish in the ocean from a kayak and have Abu Garcia Power handles on all my Revo Toro 50's and 60's. It gives me the cranking power I need to reel up Rockfish, Cabezon and Lingcod!

Rated 5 out of 5 by grindios from WILL WORK ON 2014 6500C3's…BUUUUT... ….I spoke to an Abu tech today and he said that this power handle WILL work on newer reels with the BENT STAR DRAG, however, it will stick out just a bit. If you want a BENT POWER HANDLE to match the bent star drag, you'll need to order the power handle from the 6600HC…part # 1301958…cost is around $30. Again, this handle will work, but you might consider part # 1301958 as well for reels with the bent star drag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from No screw to hold it, brass thread issue also - Grips nice, but... I just found this review for the power handle after I bought it and installed one. "The bolt that connects to handle to the drive gears was wisely made out of brass and reverse threaded on the left hand version. This allows one to strip the the brass bolt with the steel nut and ruin the shaft rather than the nut. The complete lack of directions also ensures that you will not know this and ruin it." I cant use it because no screw and i stripped a few threads as well. Why not include the set screw, what could it cost 20 cents. My original handle broke which is why I bought this one. Cant use the reel until I get the set screw and hope nut holds. No directions or I would have known to apply less turns as well. I called and had to leave a message, I hope I get a response I want to use this on my week off... ahhh What size is this screw?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Power handle This power handle amazes me! I put it on my Abu Garcia C4 to use for musky fishing with larger lures and it makes it so much easier to reel in lures like cowgirls or large crankbaits that put up a lot of resistance during the retrieve. I also like the larger grip better because its more comfortable and I never loose my grip on the handle. If you use this handle one thing to be carefull of is not to pull on the handle when setting the hook, I did this and it pulled the bolt out of place that holds the handle on which was a bit of a problem.

This allows one to strip the the brass bolt with the steel nut and ruin the shaft rather than the nut. The complete lack of directions also ensures that you will not know this and ruin it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Plainswalker from Must have for big fish! I bought this handle a couple of weeks ago and put it on a new Abu Garcia 6500 c-3. I was sceptical because some reviews stated it would not fit the new model with bent handle and star drag. Well after talking with the good folks at Abu Garcia they assured me it will and it does! Haven't had a chance to use it yet however it feels great on my already perfect Abu Garcia 6500 c-3. Can't wait to try it out on Musky, Pike and some big Catfish! Get yourself one today. You won't regret it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by fdromani3 from Looks Good, but can't use it I bought 3 of these to put on my Ambassadeur Pro Rockets over the winter. While putting them on I realized the screw is too short to secure both the nut lock and the cap that goes over it. It's really frustrating spending that much money on handles and not even getting the all the parts to properly do the job. At least it's winter here and I have time to hunt down longer screws that Abu doesn't include with the handle.
