    No. Only the 2 smallest sizes are right hand only. The 1492 and the 1492 1/2
    Larger models, the ones with the brake style drags, are easily switched

    would the 1494 be good for #5 line?

    I started this thread looking for something in the 3WT range and lost a few auctions. Now think I have the 3WT covered fine with my Reddington CT/Drift combo. Thinking I might step up to a 1494 and find an old glass rod in the 4-6 range instead.

    Yeah I've really gotten a lesson in rod/line weight importance during this past often windy month. 2-3 or a 5 WT today? Best rod/line of the day changes with the wind, literally.
