Are these preferred over the standard? Any opinions, I just use the standard. I ordered a reel with a power handle but it wasn't in stock so I just had them send me one of the same model with the standard handle. I could always buy one later if it would make that much of a difference.

I think it's just more of a personal preference. I personally prefer one big handle to two smaller ones for fighting bigger fish.

Did you get an Abu or something?

Just preference. If your gonna play the fish, the standard handles are the best bet. If you have heavy line and are gonna horse the fish in no matter what, then the power handles. You have to fit your equipment to the type of fisherman you are. If you can stand to have a big fish on the line for a decent period of time, go with the standard handles.
