Fwiw this is a left hand reel. Generally lesser demand as classic conventional reels are right handed mostly

I'm right-handed and prefer left-hand conventional reels. And know many others who do. Just saying..

P.S. Don't know about this particular reel.

This isn't a reel that you're casting much if any to fish so there's no switch involved as with a baitcaster. You'd usually want your stronger side on the crank in this case.

Yes. Mostly trolling, jigging, drifting, etc. Some people might use them differently but that's the main use. Not so much deep sea, more inshore/near shore and deep lake/bay/similar.

I think left-handed conventionals have increased in popularity primarily because manufacturers are starting to put more of them out these days. For a long time though, I think most conventionals were primarily right-handed. Not saying this is right or wrong. I think there are advantages and disadvantages to each - e.g. sure you want to wind with your dominant hand so if you're right-handed, winding on the right might be easier. But then what about when lifting the fish? Often times I've found myself switching the rod position so I can lift with my right hand. Then I have to switch back when it comes time to wind. Stuff like that. Anyway, I still prefer right-handed simply because I learned that way on conventionals.
What's funny is that with spinning reels, I prefer left-handed hahaha! I think it's the ergonomics and positioning of the reel handle, where I'm so used to the handle sitting lower (with the reel *under* the rod). Trying to fish a left-handed baitcaster is just weird to me. So a lot of it just has to do with muscle memory I think and really what you've gotten used to.
