Graves bought the rights to the XS3 design some time around 2007. The XS3 was always offered in both handed versions, and Graves continued the practice. It was just a matter of flipping one view in AutoCAD, so there was never a reason not to do so. I found about 20% of the Market wanted the Left hand” version, which correlates to roughly the same percentage of Lefties in the population. The odd part is that many buy a machine that is opposite their “handedness”, but that proportion did not change.
