Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING REEL! Got this back in January...absolutely LOVE this reel!!! I own seven different Lew's, Abu Garcia, and Quantum reels ranging from low end to $200... this one tops em all. lighter, stronger, smoother, best brakes, best drag. I have it paired on a F&S Tec-Spec 7'6" MH rod. I use it for jigs, swimjigs, texas rigs,and frogs, and have pulled in countless bass ranging up to 5 lbers. Love Love LOVE this reel, will definitely get more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from May seem a bit expensive for this... but best first baitcaster. Got this as my first baitcaster. This is the bridge between expensive, nice baitcasters, and the cheap low quality baitcasters. You can buy the $35.00 Okuma Stratus V or the $50.00 Abu Garcia Black Max (which are both great reels don't get me wrong), and experience the issues that come with that price range of reels. Things like sticky or slippy drag, accelerated wear, inconsistent casting and bad brakes. As someone's first reel, this is worth forking out the extra money for a reel that will give you a better first experience and will last you much longer. No complaints quality wise yet. I got the 7:5:1 gear ratio which is a bit fast but it really doesn't matter. Very good build quality, smooth drag and far casting. PROS: 1. Build Quality 2. Easy to personalize the reels performing characteristics (drag, brakes, etc.) 3. Very smooth casting. 4. 10 high quality bearings. CONS: 1. NEEDS A BIGGER HANDLE!!! 2. Sometimes the glossy metal star drag is slippery to wet fingers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Reel Being very budget-conscious, I recently purchased a Lew's Speed spool LFS to replace an aging (circa 1978) Shimano Bantam I used for the few times I throw plugs. That LFS is amazing for $100.00 and I love it. I did a review for it which hasn't appeared, probably because I made disparaging comments about a competitor's customer service. Anyway, I needed to get a reel for a "go-to" reel. I chose the Tournament MB after spending the winter doing research. It was a great choice! It seems to be built very solidly and there is absolutely NO play in the gears. It casts like nothing I've ever used for baitcasting and, paired with a 6'6" medium heavy rod! I experimented with everything from an unweighted six-inch wacky rig to a 5/8-ounce hollow-body sunfish and the MSB made adjusting for the varying weights very straightforward. I did get a couple of backlashes but they only occurred as I played with the spool tension and anti-backlash controls to find the optimum settings for my casting technique. I would urge anyone buying this, or any other baitcasting reel to take the time to experiment with the settings to tune the reel! You have to learn how to maximize the potential of this amazing reel. By the way, I must mention that Shannon, Mike, and Gary at DSG in Pittsfield for spending the time to let me play with it and helping me save twenty bucks in the process!!! What a great crew! One final comment regarding Lew's. It doesn't matter if you are only a hack fisherman as I am or a pro - the customer service is responsive and helpful. Buy this reel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Nice Reel!!! I put this reel on a Duckett Micro Magic to use for flipping, frogging and punching and it performs great. It took me a few outings to get the breaking adjusted, but once I did, it will cast to the bottom of the spool with 20lb fluorocarbon line on it!! I did have to grease and oil it to get it to optimum performance. I’m gonna get another in a slower speed to build a crank bait combo. I’m Happy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best reel I own Never owned a Lews reel before. 2 weeks after buying this bought my second one. They are very smooth reels. Casting is fun with them. Already watching for a third one to replace a BPS formula reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reel for this price This reel is amazingly smooth and casts a mile. I own reels I paid almost double for and this one outperforms them all

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent I have fished with it twice and caught a 4-10 LMB and it handled the fish easily. The true test will be in two weeks at Lake Chickamauga. Lew's is my go to reel and will continue to buy them.
