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

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
