Power Knob on Abu C4 5600

Hey folks, I have an Abu C4 5600 I love, I primarily use it to fish bait on bottom in the 1-2 oz range. Right now it has the standard double paddle handles on it, but I was wondering if it was possible to switch to the power handles found on the 7000 sized abus, and how effective it would be. 
 

Thanks!

I had a power handle on and switched back to a double paddle. 

 

From my old notes

 

The power handle is not a good fit. Not enough threads to screw the nut to.

It will be fine with careful tightening of the nut. (handle with recessed nut area would be better)

I would go with extended dual paddle handle on the Inshore or Revo Toro reels -- same length as power handle.  Up to you but I dislike power handles.
