This may be a dumb question. I am right handed. I have a baitcaster with the retrieve handle on the right. I come from a spinning/conventional past. Now, when I cast the baitcaster, with my right hand, controlling the spool, I have to do a quik shuffle to get the crank into my right hand.
Wouldn't it be easier to have the crank on the left? This would leave me with the rod in my right hand, which is more comfortable, and the crank in my left hand. Seems better to me. A sponsored freshwater bass fisherman confirmed this for me. Did I buy the wrong reel?
Any thoughts from you guys would be very helpful.
