Fellow Fisherman. I have an almost new Shimano SLX 151XG left handed bait caster. It has the fast 8.2 gear ratio. I tried to switch to a left handed retrieve, but I could not do it. Used 4-5 times. There is small scuff on top where I dropped on concrete. Hard to see and feel unless you really get up close. The reel works great and is the best reel I have ever used. I have a right hand on order. Comes with original box, lubricant, etc. Retail is 99 plus tax. Thanks for looking.
