In response to questions.
This reel is a RHW reel. But some will fish it LHW.
I personally will fish perfects RHW without lineguard and turn them around and fish them LHW. If you back the rim tensioner all the way back a number of hardy will have a fairly even ingoing and outgoing click.
Better yet often very worn spring springs will favor LHW. I have a couple of these type springs in my Salmon reels.
This only applies to salmon reels with locking screws. Without a locking screw the reel will disassembled very quick when a fish runs.
This concept took me a minute to figure out.
I hope this clarifies and doesn’t confuse.

Here is an example of a RHW spring configuration
