Choose hand

These two reels are set up for each their hand: the one on the left is for a left hand caster retreiving with the right hand and the one on the right for the opposite.

Thank you for the info and link. It seems I might have to try a shooting head for my rockfish fishing.

Awesome article. I just had a question about the picture in the section "Deciding which hand to use on the reel".
On the reel on the right, it looks like two different fly lines on the same reel. What kind of line is that?
Thanks for article.
