The 7000 in the photo is a right handed one , the left handed version is the 7001, the originals have been out since 1972 so pretty well tried and tested design although if you search the forums there are a few people who think the modern Taiwanese vesions are not a patch on the Swedish built versions.

the 7000s have been a top reel for many years so you will have no problems with it as long as its going to be suited to the type of fishing you want it for.

if you are right handed you will have problems with a left handed reel.

I'm right handed and prefer a left handed reel.
thats great if it works for you. :)

just curious though.

have you used a multi before?

is it a fixed spool you have been using left handed. ie with the handle on the left side.

a fixed spool with the handle on its left side is actually a right handed reel.

i obviously dont know or anything about you so excuse these questions if you know exactly what your doing.

i dont want you spending your money on a reel thats not going to suit you later.

It does make a change for someone to actually ask questions before buying a reel or rod instead of the usual "i just spent £300 on a zzip/Cono/Cent rod is it any good ?"

well im prodominatly Left handed but use my 7000,6500`s and other right handed reels with no problem`s whatsoever.
i can use a fs with the handle on either side with no noticable difference.
