If your using a conventional reel and you reel with your right hand is that a right handed reel or a left handed reel? I'm a little confused with this I am right handed and reel with my left hand with spinning reels I want a conventional that I can reel with my left hand so I would be looking for a __________ hand reel.Thanks

Conventional reels that you reel with yor right hand are right-handed reels.

Conventional reels that you reel with yor left hand are left-handed reels.

I write with my right hand.

 

I purchased 2 avet reels with the handle on the left hand side.

 

I am able to to set a hook and begin to retrieve without the juggling the rod from the right hand to the left.

 

much higher hook set in my case.

 

I will never go back to a conventional reel with the handle on the right side.

Why is it that (for us right handers) ....

 

- You "typ." use your left hand when using a spinning real, but

- You "typ." use your right hand when using a conventional real

View PostYes! I am right handed, reel with my left spinning, and use a left handed conventional to wind with my left. I don't like having to switch hands to reel.

 

 

+1.

I never get this left-right thing headscratch.gif

my left hand is dominant, I hold the rod with my left hand and reel with my right hand, for spinning that is. When using conventional/baitcasting I still hold the rod with my left hand, and I'm now using right handed reels? headscratch.gif

PS any of you guys ever wonder why some car makers put the gas tank on the driver's side and others on the passenger's side? confused.gif

I am right handed

 

For both spinning and conventional I cast with my right and reel with my left.

 

As far at top notch reels go you can get left Abus you just cant get chrome rockets and blue yonders
