    :confused: its a little cheap thing i got for my nephew and i cant even figure out how to cast the damn thing! any help would be appreciated
  2. I know nothing about that reel but on some of the wondereels form the 60's you turned the handle backwards to get the lineholding pin to retract.

  3. Beast --- I’ll try and help you out.

    I own four of these things, never tried to cast one yet.

    On the left side of the reel there is a lever it will move to three different settings. Down is free spool, in the middle is clicker and up should lock the spool. Some times up doesn’t work and the spool will not lock.

    On the left side is a knob that controls the spool pressure dial it out until the spool is loose. That’s about it, take it to the back yard and see what happens. I’m thinking not a lot. But hey, ya never know.

    I use the little wonder reels 20’s for ice fishing rods and they work very well for that application.
