Default Cross-Dominance Or Mixed Handedness. How Many Of You

So I wonder how many of us or alike when it comes to dominant hand for different tasks.

I write right handed.
Throw right handed.
Shoot bow right handed.
Shoot gun left handed.
Play guitar left handed.

Fishing reels.
Spinning reel left hand retrieve
Bait caster right hand retrieve
I’m so confused.

Right handed for the most part but shoot rifles and bows left handed on account of left eye dominance. Also, my professional kickball career was due to my left foot

Write right handed, and it looks terrible. You'd think I was writing with the wrong hand. I have a doctor's signature.

Shoot a pistol or rifle right or left handed.
Shoot a bow right handed. But have shot one left handed.
Throw right handed and bat left handed, or right handed.
Cast a bait caster reel right handed. Then move rod and reel to the left hand and reel right handed. Cast a spinning rod with right hand, and reel in with the left.



If I wanna change from my right hand, I just imagine my self doing something left-handed and how it would feel. Then try it/do it.

Everything right handed except bat left because my left handed brother would only pitch to me if I hit lefty. I forgot I play hockey and split logs lefty too, anything involving a swinging motion. My little league coach tried to get me to hit righty for a bit. I would send the ball further but my timing was off too.

Default Cross-Dominance Or Mixed Handedness. How Many Of You

Dad is lefty and I was born lefty. Bro is 7 years older and righty. When it came time for pee wee baseball, lefty gloves were hard to find so they just switched me over and I got a hand me down glove.
I could switch hit in little league. Kindergarten I started writing with my right but not sure why.

Cast right but reel left. Absolutely canít reel right. My handwriting is terrible too.

Wonder how much better I would have been at sports if I could have played lefty.

Right handed everything except spinning reels I was taught to reel with my left hand and your power arm casts and holds the rod on the lighter setups. If the reel sits up top on a baitcast or spincast, I'm back to reeling right handed.


Well I forgot something because its been 35 years in HS....I can switch hit even though my strong side was right handed..

I forgot, I can shoot a rifle left handed if the deer will stand still a minute or three. My right eye has retina problems so if Iím shooting a handgun off the bench I shoot righty but with my left eye. Itís a little better. If Iím shooting my carry gun or any handgun standing on my hind legs I just shoot with the goobered up right eye. And folks wonder why I have red dots on my carry gunsÖÖ

Left hand for writing and using a fork. Almost everything else right handed. I use a fly rod and spinning rig right handed but a baitcaster left handed. The only thing I can do equally well with either hand is swing a hammer/drive a nail

Shoot rifle- right
Shoot shotgun- right
Shoot bow- right

Spinning reel- try not to use them, but can reel with either hand.

Baitcaster- cast with right arm, hold reel with left hand and reel with right hand.


I canít do much with my left, but somehow both my kids ended up left handed.

Some of what’s being listed has more to do with the dominant eye not the hand.


Write and throw left
Play pool left
Back when I participated in boxing I primarily fought from a right stance but could switch to southpaw seamlessly.
Kick right footed
Shoot bow right handed.
Bat from either side of the plate
Gun right handed
Golf right handed

The fishing reel thing is a design quirk. Spinning reels were designed to cast the bait/lure, so they made them for right-handers to throw and fight with their strong arm while reeling with the left. Casting reels, ironically enough, originally you didn’t cast at all, just let the bait drop straight down. Therefore, they designed them so righties could crank with their strong arm cause there was nothing else to be done. This has just carried down even though you now cast with a baitcast too. Even though you can buy left-knob baitcasters, it’s not the norm. If they rediscovered/reinvented baitcast-style reels today, they’d all have handles on the left (except the deep sea types for the original reason.)

Write right handed

For some odd reason I can kick a football easier with my left foot

Fishing reels same as others, spinning left retrieve, bait caster right. Although it would be way more efficient to just reel with left hand instead of swapping hands on the baitcasters

When it comes to fishing equipment, no matter you dominant hand, fishing should be done left handed. Bait caster or spinning, doesn’t matter.

That makes sense and is probably why I was taught to use them that way by somebody born in 1910 and 1945.

Ive done it for so long I feel weaker using a left handed baitcaster ( I tried during my bass tournament days under the suspect guise Iíd be more efficient) than right handed and right handed spinner than left handed. Always go back to right handed bc and left hand spin. Iíll even change the handles on the spin if Iím borrowing one .

Iíve always said do what makes you comfortable.. not what someone says you ďshould doĒ based on their expert opinion for themselves. Well unless you fish a spinning reel with the reel above the rod ďupside downĒ .. then you should listen to the expert folks.
