Bps Prolite Baitcaster?

Recommended Posts

BPS ProLite model PRL05H. Anyone familiar with this little baitcaster that can tell me how to get the handle off so I can disassemble it for cleaning?  I've been cleaning my own baitcasters for longer than I care to remember and I've never run across a reel that doesn't have a nut holding the crank handle on.  The son-in-law picked this one up at a garage sale. Nice little reel, but it needs a major cleaning and I just, for the live of me cant't figure how to get it off.   HELP

good little reel! i've had all three iterations of the prolite: the first one (like yours which has the pflueger spin-on handle and ITB brakes), the B and the C. to remove your handle, tighten the drag star all the way, pull in on the drag star and spin the handle off counter-clockwise.

Thanks.  I figured there was a retaining clip or something.  I never would have guessed this.  Now if I can keep parts from flying out when I open it, I should be okay.
