cwalls old habits are hard to break. I have seen many people use a spinning reel in that maner and I'm speechless when I see it. No one ever taught them the proper way and they just won't change. I don't know how they do it but it works for them.
Its interesting this topic came up. My best fishing buddy from growing up always fished with his spinning reel facing up. after not seeing him for years I finally hooked back up with him and he still uses it that way. Now I know he is aware of what he is doing and I was going to ask him about it but decided not to mess with success. turns out he is one of the finest fishermen I know. I guess like you said old habits are hard to break. I know I could never make it work for me If I tried that.
