Just to play devil's advocate . . . I pipe clockwise and I'm right-handed. I find it easier to see how my icing is falling onto the cookie that way. If I go the other way, my hand covers most of the tip of my bag and interferes with my line of sight - but I work with fairly small parchment cones almost exclusively.
