Question & Answer

“I bought a rod off a friend that came with the Sage 4540 reel. I am a lefty though. It states that you can change the retrieval from right to left. Is it just a matter of switching the reel direction on the rod?
Also, does the reel separate from its casing? Most reels I own have a 'button' to press in that separates the reel. This one does not appear to have that.
Any help is appreciated.
To switch the reel, you will need to hold the center of the frame (spool) with your finger tips and push the middle out with your thumb.
In order to separate the casing, you will need to remove the spool. You will need a coin (penny) to pop the gear away from the housing. Flip the clutch bearing re install the gear.
