Rated 5 out of 5áby Tyler this is an amazing reel
With Lews you cant go wrong. This reel is a steel for only 100 dollars. I have two of the reels and i have one hooked up on my flippin rod and the other on my finesse worm rod. It can cast a mile with the lightest worms and it is wonderful to flip also. With the high gear ratio i have landed a ton of monster bass. i love the reels and you deffinently need to pick one up!

Rated 5 out of 5áby kentuckyoutdoors excellent reel
I bought this reel at the beginning of summer. Its a excellent reel. I put it on the skeet reese micro eyes pole and it hasn't let me down yet. Caught some really nice bass on it and its still going strong. Im not going to buy another reel other than this one.This reel is as smooth as any other. Its not very expensive and good quality. I recommend this to anyone who is familiar with bait casters. This gets full 5 star rating from me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SirJay Small package, great performance
The Lew's 7.1 Speed Spool dresses up my casting rod beautifully. It is smooth, small, and light and fits my hand just right. You can bet I will be adding Lew's reels to the other rods when the reels they are currently sporting wear out, maybe even sooner. Al at the Barboursville, WV Dick's store was extremely helpful, Thank YOU.

Rated 5 out of 5áby irocz3rdgen Great reel!
I own a variety of bait cast reels. Each I like for specific applications. I picked up this reel to match with my Rick Clunn Square bill rod and absolutely love this combination. The reel is smooth and the drag on it is next to none. I can cast my light squarebills with this rod and real combination with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5áby lakemap fantastic crankbait reel
I am a diehard crankbait fisherman and have even customized a series of Quantum reels to make ideal cranking reels. When this reel came out I was shocked to find every feature that I had put into my custom reels as a stock feature. First, these have a solid, high capacity spool that creates a large amount of inertia which generates much longer casts than the popular drilled spools. Second, the magnetic antibacklash control is extremely effetive for a wide variety of bait weights and further reduces casting drag maximizing distance. The magnetic anti- backlash control is also very effective for casting baits directly into the wind. Third, the larger than standard handle produces a significant mechanical advantage to the angler and greatly reduces fatigue after a long day of deep diving crankbait fishing. Fourth, for a good cranking reel, it absolutely has to have a metal frame and this one does, though a forged frame isn't as refined as a machined frame, it is still solid. Finaly, the lube port is a great addition since crankbait fishing can really put the drive and pinion gears under a lot of stress requiring more frequent re-greasing. This reel has a very smooth opperation and has one of the lowest profiles of any high line capacity reel I have used. I have fished this reel for two months now and will be buying several more to phase out my custom cranking reels.

Freshwater and saltwater.I have been using Lew's reels for 25 years when they were Lew Childre Reels then Browning bought them out. I have over 20 Lew Childre and Lews Browning reels. Just bought one of the new Lew's speed spool and its great. These reels only get better and last a lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Tomaso A little pricey, but I like it.
I use it for light saltwater fishing. So far it's holding up pretty good.
