    There is no "SET RULE"!! That is why the handle interchanges on most spinning reels!!!! Your preference!!! Although, I have seen spinning reels on the top side of the rod to suit the preference of the user!!!Sure looks like something is NOT RIGHT. Just saying. Used to be multi-tasker, now have to pull over to honk horn!~

    I grew up with spinning reel handles on the left side and bait casters on the right. Spinning reels were not switchable. That's the natural way for me.

    Right handed, handle on left. I grew up using Mitchell 300's, which had the crank on the left side. Somebody knew where it belonged.

    I am right-Handed and grew up in Backlash city with A rod my uncle brought back from japan shortly after the war. A Baitcaster with Braid that might not have threw the bait 50 feet and the rod was 4 1/2 feet steel -- thumb on the spool to try and control over run. Then one day A relative came and fished Grandpaws pond with a spinning reel that could cast 20 feet farther with no effort and never had a single Backlash. For a right Handed person the design where the Bail opens, and closes, to retrieve the line is off center to the right of center . That places the line directly under the finger of the casting hand for a right handed person --- in reversing the handle still makes no difference in the Bail Operation that is now off center for a left handed Person -- My handle is on the left side and I will never go back to Backlash city even if the reel was free
