First Impressions With My New Reels

Recommended Posts

Just thought I would give my 2 cents worth on my early observations with my new Shimano Chronarchs and Lews Speed Spools.

I bought the 5.5:1 ratio Chronarchs for crankbait fishing. After my first 3 outings, they perform as I had expected. Excellent casting distance and very smooth retrieve.

Now I received 2 Lews $99.00 Speed Spool reels as Christmas gifts, one from my wife and one from my parents. I usually like the higher end reels but thought I would ask for these just to try them out. WOW!!! I put these on my pitching sticks and they totally shocked me. They are sooooo smooth and pitched a jig and a tube with ease. Of course since the Lews brand is new again, we will have to see if they hold up for the long haul but my early impressions are very favorable. I cannot stress how nice these reels pitched baits without hardly any effort. They felt great to palm also. If they prove to be durable, then they are worth every penny.
