WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm –

This Shimano Official T-Bar Handle Replacement Kit is designed for Talica and Speedmaster reels, allowing you to gain more leverage and improved ergonomics when retrieving big fish. This kit contains original Shimano parts and is easy to install, simply requiring a screw driver to change out your smaller handle. You will need all these parts to change the handle.  The original parts won't allow for the larger handle to be installed.  They look similar to your original parts, but there are differences in the dimensions and the length of the small parts in the kit.  Enjoy increased comfort and control while reeling in a catch.

Shimano T-Bar Handle Upgrade Fits:

Speedmaster II

    • SPM12II
    • SPM16II
    • SPM20II
    • SPM25II

Talica ll

    • TAC12II
    • TAC16II
    • TAC20II
    • TAC25II

The T-shaped knob has a 9 degree offset to increase grip and torque.  With a 110mm arm length the Shimano T-Bar Handle Upgrade allows for more power while cranking on a fish.  A great upgrade for your jigging setup, making for more comfort and ease while fishing vertically and winching big fish out of the depths. 

When fishing long hours grinding large jigs, the T-Bar Handle's comfortable grip will help relieve cramping.  When that "cow" tuna does bite, you'll be ready for the long battle.

Talica II 20 2SP LD Power Handle

Original power handle for my Talica II 20 looks great and powerful. Received the Talica power handle on time as advertised. Good job Tackle Express!

Time will tell

I replaced the original handle of Shimano Talc II 16 with this T-bar handle. It was easy to install. I like it because it is a genuine Shimano part. Others sell generic brands, a bit cheaper than Shimano T-Bar handle. This is very sturdy and will add more power when I land bluefin tuna in San Diego. I gave it 4 stars because the plastic part is a bit too thick. It could have been better if it is not so thick. I am 5'9''. It may be alright for others who are taller than me. Other brands like Okuma and Avet power handles are perfect for me. Anyway, I was glad to find it on the Tackle Express website.
