As far as I can tell the only HX reels that come standard with a T-handle are the HXW Raptors. 2 and 3 speed.

But the specs on the Avet site say T-Bar on the HXJ 3-speed. I think they just have the specs wrong on their site.

how about that! if ever a reel series intuitively required a power handle the hx3/s would be it. i stand corrected- think avet should too?
Lol no worries..they do need it!!!

Could someone tell me, where can you go to get an upgraded T-handle?

Thanks,

You have to replace the arm too, you can’t just swap the handles. If you call Avet directly they will make sure you get everything you need to swap it for the T.
