    Left handed black bird

    Hello,

    I am left handed and was pondering over the idea of ordering a left handed blackbird. I have had a blackbird before and enjoyed it. I am currently in a HH explorer asym with 2Q and ZQ mod 4 .

    I am hoping a few of you that have had the left handed blackbird could give me some input on how you enjoyed it. I am curious to see if it will feel awkward considering I am used to the right handed black bird and hennessy

    My understanding is everything basically reversed.

    Thanks

    I used to have a lefty BB. I prefer to sleep with my head right and feet left. Brandon will make one for you, no problem.

    I have both. I much prefer the LH, it's just the way I tend to sleep.

    Bought my Lefty for the same reasons noted above - most of the night I am sleeping on my right side, head to the right and feet to the left in what my my better half refers to as the "flailing Heisman" position. But, as I soon discovered, switching sides (head left/ feet right) is easy and as almost as comfortable, although not quite as roomy. I have even spent a few very comfortable hours with my head in the foot box. I am mostly left-handed, but it was my preferred sleeping positions that made my decision for me.

    I sleep on my right side, the Lefty was the right choice for me.

    Boy, just want to balance the thread from all these lefties

    I love sleeping feet to the right (I sleep facing left in bed most often)!
