Left handed retrieve Low Profile Baitcaster?

10 posts in this topic

Is there such a thing? I know Abu makes a Standard Baitcaster in a lefty but no low profile. Do I have to go with a standard? Anyone got one in nice shape they want to sell? Thanks.

I use a pinnacle tetra metal series low profile lefty, like it alot but spendy.. It replaced a quantum low profile lefty, cant remember the model on that one but it was ok too, drag was a bit touchy.. I know phleuger has a new lefty out also... Not alot of choices for folks sitting in the back of the boat, still waiting patiently for a lefty line counter..............Paul

Ya a lefty line counter would be awesome. I hate setting the hook with my right hand, switching the rod to my left and then reeling with my right. Im I backwards or do a lot of ya do it too?

I did a survey on spinning and bait-casting reels a long time ago on FM and it was a fifty fifty split. Wish the companies that make high end reels would get a clue!

I know Daiwa makes left handed reels in their high end low profiles. You could probably find one on hsolist. Most other companies make them as well, I would check company websites to see what they have available.

I've always used a lefty set-up, spinning or casting.

Shimano has a good selection of lefty models in baitcasting. Shimano's left handed models have a model number ending in "01" For example the Corsair 400 is right hand and the Corsair 401 is the lefty

I have one that works great. I think that it is called a Bantum Curado (sp). They are out there, you may have to ordere from a catalog and that way you can specify.

Look under "Lefties" in the Reed's Sporting goods HSOforum; they have most of the Abu Garcia, and Shimano models listed there

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
