What's to stop you making any right handed retrieve CP's left handed by just turning the reel around 180degs and winding the line on. Am I missing an important fundamental here? Is the drag or line lay affected?

cheers

I'm a left hand retrieve and that's all I did. Just turn it around and wind the line on and you set! You're not missing anything!

Some of them are designed for right/left handed only. Some are "switcheable". The left/right handed only cp's sometimes have a clicker switch that will be in the wrong position if you just turn the reel 180 degrees and wind line on. The clicker also have more resistance peeling line off one way than the other. And of course if there are line guards involved.
