Left or Right side flyer?

Our customers decide which side of the wheel the flyer is to be positioned for a pre-order wheel.Left side, or right side, its all the same to us.

An Emily is unique in that it may have a flyer on either side, or on both. A Quincy, Colette, or A-Frame can only have one flyer, either the left side, or the right.

Which side is the correct side for the flyer to be positioned depends on the customer's preference and comfort. Most customers have an idea which works best for them. If you are unsure of which, we suggest seeking advice from a fellow spinner, or trying out a specific flyer side if possible.
