Lew's Tournament Pro G

My 2015 Christmas present. A sweet, smooth, innovative reel. I selected the 7.5:1 for more ipt when bass make a run toward the boat; it does help. It did take awhile to tweak the braking, but no backlashes since.

Nice! I want one.  So how did you end up setting the braking?  What rod did you put it on?

There are two external brake settings. On the left is your adjustable centrifugal brake system that manually click adjusts from free spool to maximum braking. Start with a middle setting and adjust either free or max based on the weight of your lure, wind conditions, preferred casting length, etc. On the drag side of the reel is a cast control system that manually click adjusts. Most of what I throw on this rig are 1/2 oz. baits or a little more when I add a trailer. Once you have your braking where you want it, there's really no need to adjust unless you are throwing into the wind. I have my TPG paired with a 7' Falcon Cara MH rod (great all-purpose rod). The reel fits my hand beautifully, and it's SMOOTH. Love the tuck-away hook keeper.
