Fish both left and right handed baitcasters?

Is there any other species?

I can cast with either hand, using both hand left handed casts are easy. Never feel like I need to go left handed reels.

I reckon I can still use either, I made the switch before lefty's became common, and prefer left handle. Back in the early days Quantum had left handles (I still have some) with the flipping switch. The guy I use to fish with always weather flipping or casting kept his reels in flipping position, you pick up one of his rigs to get after that one that missed it, the lure probably never even makes it to the water, and it sounds like you put the car in park before stopping, and feels about the same. You talk about an educated thumb, he is holding the bar down and thumbing the spool, and was very accurate.

Left hand retrieve only for me, I grew up using spinning reels and always reeled with my left.

I can do both if I had to but I have better feel having the rod in my right hand...

Right handed retrieve cast mainly with left hand.
