Quick Change™ High Performance Reels

 

   Tiburon Quick Change™ Reels are, by design, the most versatile lever drag reels on the market today. Our unique Quick Change™ gear system allows you to easily change the gear ratio in your reel to suit any fishing challenge. All it takes is a simple Phillips screwdriver and a few short minutes to convert your Quick Change™ reel from a low speed "stump puller" to a high speed jig caster, or to what ever you want it to be. There is virtually no fishing task that the Quick Change™ reel cannot adapt to. Even if you're a complete novice at servicing your own reels, you will be able to utilize all of the Quick Change™ reel's fish-catching potential - it's as easy as One, Two, Three…….

                                                            

One…. Remove the four mounting screws from the right side plate
with a Phillips screwdriver and lift the side plate off of the reel frame.

                          

Two….. Pull out the pinion gear and remove the mounting screws in the drive gear. Replace the drive gear and pinion gear with the desired new Quick Change™ gears.

                                                            

Three….. Screw the side plate back on and get into the action

With the same screwdriver and a Tiburon SmartShift® 2-Speed Conversion Kit, you can convert your single speed Quick Change™ Reel to a Tiburon Smart Shift® Automatic 2-speed Reel!

You can do it yourself with no need for outside services or special tools!
