Iím trying to figure out how the handle knob comes apart. It has to be a 2 piece knob or the nut on the outer bearing would be almost inaccessible. Itís a new reel and I donít want to scratch it up messing with it. Anyone taken one apart yet? How does it come apart without damaging it?

Here is the schematic:

Looks like it unscrews.

Looks like an aftermarket knob I have. Tape the jaws of a pair of needlenose pliers and stick a jaw in opposing holes on either side of the top a the knob and twist.

May be reverse threads to keep the knob from unscrewing itself when cranking.

I tried unscrewing it both ways. Wonít budge so far. Iíll try it again with more force. Hate to scratch up the new reel.

Maybe some penetrating oil soaking for a bit. If that don't do it try some heat, like boiling water. Here's mine so you can see. Threads are clockwise-right, so left to loosen.

Got it! Had to use rubber jaw channel lock type pliers to hold other side of knob to keep it from spinning.
