cabbalas spinning reel handle won't come off

Recommended Posts

Have you removed the locking plate first before attempting to remove the nut?   The nut won't turn without doing this first.  

Never mind, if it's a spinning reel, this won't apply.  You SHOULD just have to hold the reel to keep it from turning than turn the reel handle backwards. OR, if it is like some reels, you might remove the "cap" on the other side and that either unscrews the reel handle OR by doing so, it gives you access to the screw that does secure the handle.

Not sure what you have tried yet so not sure about advice. I agree with Ratherbfishing on the screw on the reel handle. On my Shakespeare spinning reel that 's the screw to change left to right or right to left. Let us know how you make out. Might want to check on You Tube or just a Google search.

If its the newer white one its a daiwa designed reel with a hex shaft that goes through the gearing and then attaches with a screw under a cap or a screw made into the cap depending on the reel. Either way the cap will screw off if you turn it counter clockwise.

Why not ask Cabelas?  They are very responsive.
