BPS Extreme Handle upgrade

Recommended Posts

I figured since I don't have any Abu reels and the revos and extremes are made at the same OEM it would be ok to do this.... made an old reel i don't use ch anymore a little more appealing

Abu Garcia carbon fiber handle and aluminum knobs (JDM, less than 60 bucks two barrings in each KNOB!!! unbelievable)

BPS Extreme

wow looks nice. how much smoother is the handle compared to the old one?

It's like night and day.... it feels twice as smooth and much more sound

i think the handles worth more than the reel.

it was ... I paid 40$ for the reel on sale and $50.53 in US currency on the handle. Most of my reals are Shimanos and I saw the handle last week and thought it was to good of a deal not to buy and didn't feel right putting it on a shimano reel so my old BPS Extremes got a face lift

It's not that I wanted to put this handle on this reel.... It's that when I found a CF handle with 4 barings for less than 60$ I had to buy the handle.. and This was the only reel I could put it on.

I wouldn't say silk on a pig more like a Gucci sweater on a chiwawa

incheon, that's so cool. if you ever wanted to buy up a bunch and bring 'em back to the states, the guys in the TT classifieds would gobble them up.

andamtoft, you can order the carbon fiber patriarch XT handle and it will fit most BPS, daiwa, abu-garcia and pflueger reels:

here's what you'll need:

  • handle and nut, part #1200025, $37
  • washers (2), part #1185798, $0.70
  • handle nut retainer, part #1200030, $2.72
  • handle nut retainer screw, part #1200031, $2.50

you can order them from either:

  • pflueger parts: (800) 554-4653
  • abu-garcia customer service: (800) 228-4272

This is awesome.  And no matter how crazy people think this is, it will never top the Zebco on the Steez rod.
