Amazon has the 200IPG as RH.

I'm beginning to think there is a typo in the Amazon listing and that the CU201 PG is the Lefty one.

Odd # Shimano reels are lefties.

IPG is a 6 ratio and PG is a 5 ratio I believe. In Shimano reels they're right handed if they end in a 0, left handed if they in a 1. So a 200 is a righty, 201 is a lefty.

Amazon has it right.  You're confusing the I with a 1. I is the reels' platform ID.  Newer platform is K. The I was a great reel. I have the Japanese counterpart, the Scorpion 200. Guys using the K say they are better.  Slightly more compact and newer brake system.

I think they are the same some site would add “I” as indicated to “I” version of curado. The PG is for slower gear ratio 5, 200(i) for 6 and HG is for 7 also XG is 8 gear ratio.
