Just Got My First Lew's

Recommended Posts

I just purchased my first lews reel which was the $99 speed spool the other day. After reading some very good reviews on the whole lews line I figured I would give this one a shot. So far I have been blown away by it, for it being towards the bottom of their line of reels. Paired it up with my 7 ft st croix mojo bass rod and I can cast the thing a mile. I believe I will be getting the tournament pro in the near future.

Congrats on your purchase! I believe that the 99 dollar speed spool is the best casting reel made in the 100 to 120 price range. My friend got one for his son and like it so much he sold hit tourney pro and got 3 more speed spools.

Does anybody else have experience with the MG or tournament speed spool? I was messing around with both of them at cabelas today and liked their feel. Don't have the money for the TP and there are MG's and tourney speed spools on ebay for good prices.

I have two, and I know what my next reel purchase will be, no need to look at any others.

I would not get the tournament MG, as it has Magnetic only cast control, the Tournament, Tournament Pro, and team, all use both Magnetic and Centrifugal cast control. The Tournament Pro I believe is the best bang for the buck, street price around $150.00. All are excellent, I just love them!!

I just bought the Tourament Speed Spool a couple weeks ago and I'm in love with it.

From first feel and looks, I agree. I plan to put mine through its paces this weekend.

I haven't sampled the Tournament Pro, but there really are only minor (IMO) differences between the Tournament and Tournament Pro. The TP uses one extra bearing and a carbon fiber handle. Both reels have magnetic and centrifugal cast controls, >10+1 bearings, a clicking star drag and spool control knob, and 14lbs drag. For <$120 on ebay, the tournament is an excellent value; the TP is about $30 more. I also like the gloss black looks of the Tournament better than the flat black of the TP.

I held both and after playing around with them at Cabela's, I liked the feel of the Tournament better than the Pro. The fact that it was $40 less and had that sleek black look were pretty much icing on the cake for me.

The TP is about 2 oz. lighter with aluminum vs. brass gears.
