+1 on the De Oro support. Undoubtedly you can get the perfect angle you're looking for when placed on the right or left leg. It is also virtually indestructible, portable, light, and the suction cups seem more robust than on other supports. Been using mine for years and still looks and functions like new.

I also recently gave the barnett support a try, and the versatility will definitely allow for the one to use it on the right leg as well. If the person doesn't need a high neck angle they can get the short model, but both the standard/short models have nobs to adjust the height.

I have used the ergoplay Tappert and Troster models and I like both. I personally haven't experimented with this much- but I bet you could get the Tappert to work pretty well on the right leg. You might need to add some kind of padding for friction, though.

More and more right leg for me...

Yes, Fred Hand has converted to right leg with support, lengthens the spine, looks very comfortable, and he was a left-foot footstool user for decades.

I'm another player who uses a Barnett support on my right leg. The base of the Barnett support swivels to allow it to adapt to either right or left leg. To be honest, this support was a god send as 30 minutes with a foot stool just caused to much pain in my lower back.

+3 for the DeOro support. Easy to adjust to virtually any playing position plus they don't look bulky or obtrusive. I'll also add that Diego is a really great person to deal with!!!
