    Interesting reel. I don't have the reel or know hoe to convert it...but I can give you some leads. I'm afraid the reel came with an additional plastic piece for the conversion. So without it...you might be out of luck.

    A 2x fourums member posed the question 2 separate occasions several years ago that I could see. I would reach out to these folks and see if they had any success. They weren't very active on these forums. Member m11 actually left his email.
