Does it come naturally with a few throws, it seems very uncomfortable to me but I haven't played with that configuration much. Grew up pap-gooing and bass fishing with grinder in the normal place so it just feels right there?
Have to agree with you, it feels like I am casting with my left foot holding the reel.
However, I am forcing myself to learn.
So far about 30-odd gentle casts in the field and it is starting to feel less strange and the timing of the release is improving.
I have been told "Put about 150 casts in, and it will all feel normal"
We'll see.
