    Hmm. I'm a righty. My spinning reels have the handle crank on the left, however; the baitcasters are on the right.

    Joanne is left handed and uses right handed fishing gear. She learned on it and hasn't ever used anything else.

    i am left handed and always used right hand reels but i just recently switched to left handed reel for laughs and i was a more natural feeling so i never changed back just on a side note i always felt wierd when reeling in a fish right handed so that why i switched just to try. so if you feel like something is just not right when your reeling in a fish then try this maybe it will help

    O.K., so I'm ignert, how do you tell which are left handed? I have open faced reels I crank with my left hand and baitcasters I crank with my right. None of them seem odd to me.

    I'm left handed and all I've ever used is right handed reels. I tried to cast a friends left handed Abu one time and it just felt too wierd.

    I'm a southpaw, but fish with the rightside reel. I sling my bait from the left side.

    I'm a lefty and use only right hand reels. If I get a spinning reel with the handel on the left, I switch it to the right. Cast left handed.
