Default Re: Question about Vintage Hardy Lightweight Reels

I'm going to guess it was a right hand winding reel.....................

I could be wrong but, early Hardy Lightweight Series reels were made either R or L hand wind and not interchangeable. In or about 1950 - 1951 they introduced the duel pawl interchangeable reels with a line guard that also could be flipped.

I would watch for a late 60's - 70's model to be sure you get one hat is able to be switched.
