This is a very common filter. The size and shape of the handle may vary, depending on the manufacturer and the year of production, but this does not affect the compatibility of the filter with you spa. Do check the type of thread on your filter, though : the PWW50P3 has an SAE thread, which has quite "fat", widely-spaced spirals. If your old filter has a narrower, finer thread, then it may be a PMAX50, although this model is less common than the PWW50P3.

To check the size of your filter, measure its length excluding the handle and the thread
