Default Right angle fly reels?! Where to find?

Hey Guys,

Been fishing right angle fly reels for the salt and Salmon...Absolutely LOVE THEM! I have since aquired a few new rods (for pursuit of of slamon/steel/light salt) and want to throw the right angle on them. Need to find more reels or a few spools. Does anyone HAVE any spools/reels or know of where to find them? I wish they were not out of production!!

I am looking for spools/reels in AR-8 and AR-10! thanks!!!

Google them up. it looks like they still make them.
I'm using an IPad and I don't know yet exactly how to copy a url and paste it to this page yet. (Got a lot to learn about the IPad)

They most certainly dont make them. I know what website your refering to, however I have been in contact with them and right angle is 100% out of business...

I bought it off craigslist a guy had it in New Hampshire, I am looking for a schematic or instruction manual to change it from right hand to left hand wind. It is a 12 wt reel for salmon.

An AR-12? SHEEEEEESH! I have been using an AR-8 and AR-10 for the last 6 years without a hitch...Hell the ar-10 is a bit too much if you ask me...I hope you have arms the size of my torso to swing that around all day!

No problem swinging it its lighter than a billy pate tarpon, I like it because I can break it down in the field. Any one know who can work on this thing I want to get it changed from right wind to left wind. I found some folks in the UK that think the clutch can be flipped over to reverse the wind direction. If somebody knows a reel smith I will pay to get it done. Otherwise I will have to teach myself to reel on the wrong side.
