Dear forumer, I need your assist, how to open/remove the star drag of my old Penn 114 series, as I don't have anymore the original tools from Penn. Also I want to change the handle knob by aluminium, but it look hard to loose the knob. I'am very appreciate if you can tell me step by step with photo's and also the tools needed. Thank's in advance.

i dont think you can only change the knob. you will have to change out the whole handle.

if you dont have the specialty wrench then just take your screw driver and remove the lil set screw and then take a pair of pliers and bust loose the nut. you can place a piece of cloth around the nut to keep from buggering it up if you would like.
this will get the "star" and the handle off !

if you are wanting to actually replace your drag washers and such then it gets a lil more complicated !

hope this helps.

Heeyy where's my guru's Alan ???

just finishing my coffee...........

the handle assembly is rivetted together. if you want to change out a grip, you have to drill out the old one and bolt on a new one. i have an example here.... handle upgrades - please read this first you need a handle wrench to remove the handle nut. they are very common and many tackle shops have extra's lying around. the shimano wrench will fit on the penn handle nut, but the penn wrench is slightly smaller and will not fit on a shimano handle nut. can you post a picture of the handle grip that you want to bolt on. i'm not clear on what you are trying to accomplish.
