Do you reel with your RIGHT hand or your LEFT hand? Reels all come from the manufacturer set up for LEFT hand retrieve. If you would like it setup for right hand retrieve (wind) please choose right hand wind option at check out. 

Reel set up includes 20lb or 30lb dacron backing loaded onto the reel in the direction you choose at no extra cost. Reels spooled for freshwater in size 8 and up will be spooled with 30lb dacron unless otherwise directed. For no reel set up, simply continue shopping or proceed directly to cart.

  • When no option is chosen, reels will ship as is (usually left hand retrieve and without backing).
  • We have a variety of backing colors that rotate regularly. If you have preferences, please let us know in the "Notes for seller" box during checkout.
  • Some reels specify "Right Hand" or "Left Hand" on their variant description, for example Nautilus NVG Reels or Islander MR2 - Please note that these reels are limited to the direction specified. You may still choose an option to add backing, or leave a note for us during checkout.
