    Hi Guys,

    I have a brand new Avet HX Raptor with the stock ergonomic handle and I want to replace with the power handle from like an Avet 30 which have.

    Question is how do you get the handle off the arm? Picture below. :)

    Isn’t the HXW power handle a direct fit?

    You have to replace the arm and the handle from the HXW Raptor. Call Avet and they will get you the right parts. Unfortunately there are a few more parts that need swapped than just the handle itself, I think all told you are looking at $50 or $60 to swap it, but it has been a while since I have ordered the parts to do it.

    I have the arm and handle assembly off a 30 pro at home. I could just buy a hxw handle and arm. But what’s the fun in that.

    If your going to be fishing for average size tuna/wahoo that you would expect on an 8 day or shorter trip, your better off with the stock handle. Reason is you can turn it much faster then you can turn the big power handle. Very important with Wahoo & yo-yo yellow tail. If your going cow hunting with this reel, you really need the 3speed version.IMHO
