I bought the reel to replace one that had seen better days. In the two months I have had it I have caught just short of 200 crappie, 12 large mouth bass the biggest of which was just over four pounds, Four catfish the largest being 6 pounds, and A few gasper too. The reel has been fished in the rain and the cold, casted jigs and shot docks, it is just as smooth as when I took it from the box. The reel has 10 bearings, a large spool to help casting, and a very smooth drag. All for a little over $30. I am in no way affiliated with Lews just sharing because it is a good reel for a fair price.

Yes Lew's I realized the phone auto corrected it and you can't edit the title line. If they were really smart phones it wouldn't have corrected me:biggrin

Yep best reels ever I love them! The knew american hero bait caster should be good. I just ordered three new ones. I've got 6 of the ones it replaced that are awesome! The bass pro bait caster is awful.

Thanks for this review. I'm in the market for a new reel. My goto is making some weird noises. Even my fishing buddy is razzing me over it. I hooked a 24 inch pickerel last week that made the reel sound like it was gonna explode into dust. Gonna look into getting one of these although I have to admit I have never heard of this brand before now.

It has been around a long time. I can remember it from when I was a kid. All TV fisherman were using Lew's speed sticks bass fishing.

Really? Never saw it up in NJ. Was all Daiwa, shimano, Mitchell, Zebco, etc. I remember when I first saw Abu Garcia, and always remember penn for the salt guys. Maybe I watched the shows but never noticed the Lew's commercials because I never saw or noticed them in the shops.

At Lews.com they give a pretty interesting company history.
