    i just picked up one of these at a fairly good deal. Anyone used one much? ive read good reviews so far.

    i would like to find a power handle for it. Does shimano make one?

    Good luck on the search. I checked a few places but came up empty on them.

    that first link is definetly the one i need but i was hoping they were about half that much, i may have to wait a while to justify spending that much.

    i certainly appreciate you doing a search for it though

    Check with catfish connection , I am almost positive that a handle for an abu will fit.I know it will fit a calcutta 150.

    If the one I found will fit, I'm pretty sure an Abu won't, as they have different-sized holes. :sad2: Here's a thread I found the other day: http://www.allcoast.com/discussion/ViewTopic.cfm?topic_ID=83863&page=2

    Most important are these two pics:

    That's the Calcutta 400BSV handle (the one in my first post) on a 400A

    http://www.allcoast.com/discussion/postImages/6985.jpg
    That's the same reel with the Abu Garcia handle.

    I agree with you Rob, that certainly is too much for a handle.

    Good searching did anyone look at the cabelas website for one as it may have changed.
