Changing gears

Recommended Posts

So i have a Carbonlite reel, (A fancy PQ) and It only comes in the gear ratio 6.4.

I want it to be 7.1, which the PQ comes in. They are basically the same reel so are the gears interchangeable?

If they are, how do you swap gears?(Newb question lol)

Any gear change requires the main gear and pinion gear, they have to match to mesh correctly. This is most easily accomplished during a cleaning/service when the reel is already stripped. I believe those models will interchange, but that should be confirmed when ordering.

keep in mind that, even if the PQ's main and pinion gears fit in the CL, you're trading duralumin gears for heavier brass gears
