I bought this on a whim as my fist baitcaster reel. All I know about them is that I bought it Monday and on Tuesday I landed a 20lb YT on it on a day trip using a coltsniper and now I love this thing.

Only issue with it is the handle. I got the FTH400LP which comes with a double-knobbed handle. The FTH400LPHS (the high-speed model) comes with a "power handle" which appears to be the same, except it has a single knob.

Question is, is it the same dimensions or is it lager?

I'd also like your thoughts on the best power handle for it. I have read that several handles for the Abu reels will fit but since I know nothing else about baitcasters, can you give some more specific info on what I should be looking for?

Thanks.

    Hope this helps. CW handle is the top, bottom is the power handle with a after market knob for better balance..

    The shaft size on those makes it difficult. Almost all other reels have a 5x8mm shaft, that one is 8x8mm. The Abu Revo Toro Beasts have the same shaft, if you can find any handles for those. I think they're made in the same place in Korea.

    CW means counter weight handle. I was asked to make 5 of these power handles for for the Jigging guys in Australia. they also wanted to see the crank length differential and mounting. It just so happens you had the same issue.
