Default Allen Trout Series Reel

I just received an Allen Trout series reel. Anyone know how to change from left hand retrieve to right hand retrieve?

Your gonna love the reel, Its actually very simple. Loosen the outerthreaded knob to remove the spool, you sill see a rubber o-ring on the shaft- remove it so you can take the piece that looks like a nut off and tap the bearing ring out and install the opposite of the way it was. Install back onto the drag assembly shaft, re-install o-ring, install spool and away you go.

Thanks Ohjoe! You're right I do love this reel and I haven't even used it yet. Going after some lunker browns tomorrow (5 to 7 lb). Justin PM right about the same time you replied. He really takes care of business. Thanks again.

I just got my 5/7 trout reel today and must say it is a quality looking reel. Thing looks like it should go on a bigger rod. Bad thing is I don't know when I'll get to try it out.

I have a Allen Alpha 3 wt and 5 wt. They are very smooth and attractive. I actually took my Ross reel off my 5 wt rod because I like the Allen drag better.....anybody wants a deal on the Ross please PM me...

Your going to really enjoy the Allen Reel.

Regards, Boser
