Better Baitcaster???

Recommended Posts

Which would you choose out of these two? No specific technique going to be fished, just an all around reel:

1. Lew’s Tournament Pro Speed Spool (TP1H)

Or

2. Shimano Curado (200e7)

Thanks for your input.

Shimano has been a proven winner.  Lews is a very popular up and comer.

Can't go wrong with either one.

 

X2 although I lean towards Shimano, as Roadwarrior said.

Had both and preferred the tourney pro though they were both excellent.

Never seen a Lews in a local store and have been well served by Shimano for many years. At least it makes my choice easy.

I love my lews TP, I have also thrown the shimanos while someone else was in the boat..... I don't think I would change, but I am very set in my ways.

 

Shimano has been around a long time, so has the Lews brand via different ownership. The lews are lighter.

 

you cant go wrong either way, no matter what the posse tells you.

 

 

personally, I cant wait until the Lews vs Shimano threads get the "senko treatment" hahahhaha

There are reels that match or better shimano reels but nothing matches or betters the senko. :wink2:

My point was there are fanboys or a posse for any brand you want to name. So you really can't go wrong........ my senko reference was aimed towards the vs threads are kinda pointless, much like he senko threads.

buy all you can afford and I bet it will be good enough gear to serve you well..... lews, shimano, or any other brand..... well except for ugly stick ha ha.

Both solid reels, I chose the Lew's after trying both and using Shimano's for over 20 years, either one I feel is better than the other choices.
