I don't know about the handle but I need a whole new fish tape for the housing. I bought a stainless steel Ideal tape a couple years ago and now it is so twisted I can hardly use it. I've tried everything I know to straighten it out but it still is twisted. Bad thing is I don't know how it got that way.

I actually prefer a roll of fishtape in an old fashioned piece of greenfield. So much easier IMO. I have never liked the dispensers at all. They suck and if the tape gets dirty, they quit working.
I have a couple rigs downstairs in the basement. I think.
