Hello,
My son broke his base on his Cortland Mosquito S reel and a store had a spare base they were willing to give me. When I reel correctly with my right hand it clicks quietly but when I reel correctly with my left hand it clicks loudly. I think it is backwards and I don't know how to switch it. Does anyone out there know how to do this and can you walk me through it? He does reel with his left hand.
Thanks a bunch
Jim

My son has always wound with his left hand but it was always loud but I never paid too much attention to it. But yesterday when I was playing with it after I got the new base I noticed it was really loud but quiet when I was winding backwards. Then it dawned on me it was backwards. lol I guess I should pay closer attention to these things. His other reel was the same way. lol
