Removing the Spool
Q – How do I remove the spool on my reel?
Important: do not remove the drag knob or the black nut with two small holes in it.
A – Hold the reel in your hands with the drag knob facing you. Place your finger tips around the edge of the reel case and place your
thumbs in the ports against the spool. Push the spool away from the case. You will feel the reel “click” as the o-ring unseats from its groove. Withdraw the spool from the body.
Please watch our instructional video that will visually walk you through this process.
