Hardy St George hotspur question?

Are these reels rim control or side control?

They are a caged reel & there is no exposed rim to palm; the easiest way is to put your finger tips (winding hand) behind the back of the reel at it's edge & apply pressure to the inside edge of the rear of the spool with your' thumb by gently squeezing your' thumb & fingers together.
This works well with the St. John, St Aiden or any other similar caged reels which lack an exposed spool rim for palming.
