How to convert wind on Loop Evotec reels

Here's a simple job that I get asked to do many times every week, the principle is the same on all Loop CLW, Multi, Evotec and Opti reels as well as the older Danielsson made Evotecs. This procedure should not be attempted on Loop Classic reels - these cannot be changed due to the clicker setup!

This great little video shows you how to do it yourself...

If you're still not sure what you are doing with a Loop or indeed any other make of fly reel contact us and we will talk you through the RHW/LHW conversion!


  1. A critical step in this procedure is re-installation of the seal. As shown in this video and not discussed in the instructions, using the handle end of a screwdriver insures proper installation.
