I think this would be interesting to see how reel retrieval preference pans out for us here. The key is preference. I can retrieve both ways, but I prefer LH retrieve for both reel types.

I realize that this subject comes up and everyone happily gives their two cents (feel free to do so again), but what I am interested here is not the why, but how it breaks down statistically.

I think it would be interesting to see if Shimano's choice to not see a LH cranking reel is justified. Voices can be loud to demand a LH 5.x cranking Curado, but is the market not there as they claim?

Thanks!

At one point, they must have thought that the market did exist -> Curado 201B5, 201B38. I think there was a low speed LH Citica too..

I can't answer. You don't have LH for spinning, and both for casting.

Just added it and a few other possibilities I didn't initially think of. Thanks!

Let me know if there are other possibilities that I missed.

I noticed that! :D

So far, although 31 votes, it's shaping up how I initially expected. Although it is still early, the RH casters/LH spinners group is who I expect to have the majority. Keep'em coming folks!

Leftie... Although I shoot a gun / bow / write / play guitar right handed.

I accidentally chose LH for casting RH for spinning, I'm lefty for BOTH.

Shimano did have a low speed Curado, the Curado 201dpv. I have one on my Shimano Compre cranking rod in my truck right now :D

I am right handed, but I always reeled left with my spinning reels and held the rod with my right, so why switch for BC reels?

TackleTour forums did this as well and the majority there were lefties ;)
