Reeling Demographics... are you a righty or lefty

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Speaking of casting reels only... do you reel with your right or left hand?

I am right hand dominate and use right hand BC reels. I don't really know why other than the fact that I learned that way. Maybe I should try a left hand reel because it does make more sense that way.

and we are told it is not worth it for Shimano (tooling costs apparently) to make left handed reels in all their models.

I guess this site is not indicative of Shimano's target market.....why else would they claim the tooling isn't worth making left handed reels in all models?
