More Help for a Newell Reel

1002 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  mytiju

Before you educated us all to the ways of the Newell Reel I had purchased a S540 4.6:1 to use during my occasional cod fishing trip to Mass on the Helen-H. I?ve used the reel a couple times with good results but wish that I had the greater cranking power of the lower geared 3.2:1.

Is there a way to down gear this reel and if so how and where can I get the parts? What do you think the costs would be? Is it worth it?

As always, thanks for the great advice.

Thanks EC,

I'll just suck it up and get a new one. Keep this as a backup. Which ProGear would you suggest?
