Woodster, try warming the retaining ring GENTLY with a hair dryer, or a hot air paint stripper, it is a thinner section than the reel handle, so it should heat up & expand before the reel handle itself. To make sure it does immerse the reel in a bowl or bucket of water as for up the handle as possible, this will dissapate the heat going into the reel, & keep the heat differential in your favour. Have a piece of hardwood or plastic at hand, so as when the ring is heated you can give it a tap back. Good luck!
