Rated 5 out of 5 by What a REEL This is my second Lews and I'm looking at a couple more. I've been fishing for over 45 years and have used many brands and set ups and I have to say this is the finest reel I've ever had on the water. And the price, that's just a bonus August 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a REEL I've been fishing for 45 years and never really took to a baitcaster until I purchased a Lews. This is now my second one and I enjoy it everytime I hit the water. Fits great in my hand, and the cast you can make. Not to mention you can just flip it into those hot spots. Adjust your breaks to the weight of your lure, and start working those baits right into the sweet spots. TWO THUMBS UP TO LEWS! July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top notch reel Ive been looking to get a new baitcaster for some time. It came down to lews and diawa. After going to the store to feel and position them in my hands, the lews will take it all day. from aesthetics to functionality. Cannot say enough great things about this reel. Lews all day. -GREAT bearing system makes you cast a mile even with wieghtless rigs. -7:5:1 ratio is super fast for reeling in boat charging fish or punching pads/vegetation. -Smaller body profile to fit much better than many other reels. -Braking system is great however there are no numbers to femind you where you were while casting with certain lures, etc. However, not a big issue what so ever. -Spool brake is very sensitive, slightest turn makes a huge difference. -VERY STRONG drag system. Will not budge. -Overall very sturdy, smooth and wholesome feel, great piece of equipment. July 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth This reel is very smooth. Casting distance is great. July 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reel I have been searching for a bait caster have tried a few in the past and always got back lash no matter what the setting. Bought this reel to give it one more try set it up and this reel performs perfect casts really far no back lash this is a great reel for the price. March 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Too nice for $100 Purchased this for a backup reel and it ended up as my primary once I picked it up after an accident with my main stick. I have baitcasting reel's over double the price including a Lew's BB1 and as it turns out I'm giving up so little vs. the LFS that I'm upset I didn't just buy a few of these and use the savings on more swimbaits. Adjustment is standard and works well, casts as good as anything I have, it's impressive at the price point for sure. March 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful, smooth, dependable! I bought this recently and I put 10pound mono this reel cast a mile! mile! No joke! When you purchase please set it up right to prevent backlash. Peace.. February 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LEW's Reels The on line purchase is flawless! These are great reels , Virtually trouble free when it comes to Backlashes. Couldn't ask for a better Baitcaster!!! January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have no fear!!! These reels are great!!! Very smooth, almost no mechanical feel at all... I bought 5 LFS reels for the season to be put on 5 various mojo bass rods. I did get one reel that had a little chatter for about 2-3 trips out but seemed to soften after that. Absolutely no mechanical issues! Less cranking fish lost due to an ultra smooth drag. I did have to learn not to try and muscle them like I did my pflueger presidential reels. Same cast distance half the effort! I have 2-6.8:1 & 3-7.5:1 reels, in hind sight I would buy all 7.5:1 reels. Not much difference in torque from the lower ratio but harder to catch up to fish running at the boat! You will not be disappointed in this reel. 40+ft flips with a 1/4oz 20+ft flips with 3/16 bitsy bugs jigs 85+ft casts with Rapala dt6's. I can set it so my wife doesn't have to touch the spool during a cast(3/8 spinner) and still make it to the shore easily casting while I'm flipping a trick worm on 1/4oz shaky head. If the LFS is this good I can't imagine how good a BB1 is!!! November 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by everyone should have one I've been fishing all my life. I've used every kind of reel and just about every brand. When my boss recommended I tried lews I thought it was going to be just another real in my collection but since buying my first one I've sold all my other reels and solely bought all lews. these are the smoothest lightest most well-made reels that I have usedif you haven't tried one you don't know what you're missing.
