    Found one that works and fits very well. Much cheaper and slightly better quality than having to use a shimano handle or ordering a daiwa saltist handle. If you order a oem handle you still have to order the nut and nut keeper.
    Ended up with a gomexus power handle. Got off ebay on sale for $23 free shipping. My first time using this handle company. Might order some over sized handles for my smaller 200 calcutta.
    Can't wait to try it out on some fish this year.

    When I did power handles on my Calcutta's 250 and 400 models , I had a problem with the reels engaging during the cast . Turns out that the handles are not truly counterbalanced and when you cast the extra weight of the knob portion allows the inertia to turn the handle during the cast locking the reel into gear . Finally got the custom counter weights from ,parts-store Daves reel service . No more accidental crack offs at the first of the cast . Easy to modify the handle with the larger weight , if it turns out to be a problem The handles are a good addition to the reels . WR

    Good point, heard that mostly happening with people adding single non "balanced" power handles. However I've actually had that happen on my original Grey Lexa 400 with the stock handle. Had the magnets turned way up on windy day and was whipping a 3oz leadhead really hard . Rod and reel almost flew out my hands the first time it happened. That reel ended up doing that a couple more times throughout my ownership.
    The handle I just put on the luna has a hex screw to remove and replace the counterweight. Hopefully I don't have to mess around with finding the right weight. Thanks for letting me know about Dave's. Will Check him out for future purchases.
