I set mine (4") up per the drawing, and it appeared to be for LH wind. Meaning the frequency of the clicks is much lower, and tension feel greater when retrieving than when dispensing line when winding with RH.
Based on the drawing with the E active, I would think that a RHW would move the pawl tip to the right thereby contacting the spring closer to the pivot point (a shorter lever), and cause the greatest tension. Am I analyzing this incorrectly?
Please see attached pictures. The reel is a Pridex which is identical to the Beaudex other than the drag adjustment. Both have the right pawl as the "functioning" pawl. First pic with the pawl as is will have more resistance incoming versus outgoing. Second pic shows pawl that will have more resistance outgoing versus incoming. Second pic shows the pawl identical to "Speyducer's" pic.
