RH wind is the best for the click pawl drag. 1492DA. Bare, no line. Cleaned and lubed.
$65

I'm RH and fish all my vintage reels RH wind. No big deal. He'll never have a fish on the reel, anyhow.
You can't reverse a 1492.

You sort of can. I need to find the post

It's fucking up an antique.
Use it as designed, or else.
I'll sell you a Martin tuna can if you want to go both ways. It can go either way.
But a Medalist. Blasphemy!

This looks like it will work for the conversion. I have an old 1494 1/2 I'd give you but it probably too heavy. Don't know? Let me know if you want it.

Not a full drag, but like Doug said it's not really needed

A shitty video of a shitty fix.  n!n
If you can jerk off with your right hand, you can wind a reel RH.  :;!

I agree, I wouldn't go through all that to change some POS reel. Especially when other kinds of reels I own spin and fly I reel left haded. BTW- I amphibious p;-  My bait casters are right handed and that doesn't seem to be much of a problem.
