So in my other thread, I've pretty much narrowed down the rod to either a Dobyn's Fury or if I can find a Fenwick AETOS on clearance somewhere.  In the 1/8-1/2oz range for ned rigging, senkos, cranks, etc. 

 

Now I'm looking into reels and have noticed that Lew's bait casters are extremely popular but I don't see much on here or elsewhere about their spinning reels.  

 

Anyone have some experience with their spinning reels?

How about an Okuma Inspira?  The -20 size looks perfect for this kind of rod.

I'd say the $80-ish range.  I would be pairing it most likely with a Dobyn's Fury 702SF rod.  Ned-rigs, senkos, 1/8oz cranks, etc.

 

I'm currently leaning towards the Okuma Inspira.

The Daiwa BG can be had on Amazon for 85 bucks. That would be my choice. If you can manage to add 15 bucks to it you can get a Procyon for a shade over 100 which is an amazing reel.

 

I cant comment on the Okuma as I stick to Daiwa and Shimano for reels.

The main reason I was leaning towards the Okuma is because it's $80 on TW but Amazon has it for $45.  For $45, I could upgrade the Fury to a Dobyn's Sierra rod I think.  It's also black/blue - my favorite color combination. :D

If going with the Okuma will allow you to go with a Sierra that is for sure the way to go.

Well, I'm looking at either...

 

Fury 702SF w/Daiwa Procyon for a bit over $210 

 

or

 

Sierra 702SF w/Okuma Inspira for a little over $200.

 

So...  Not sure which would be the better go. :)

 

EDIT:  After discussing with another member on here, I'm leaning towards the Dobyn's Sierra with the Okuma.

My understanding is that Lews doesn't get their spinning reels from from the same company they get their baitcast reels from, which is a shame.  I have not heard good things about their spinning reels.

I had a Lews spinning reel and did not like it at all. It felt tight not sure if I got a bad one or not but not buying again. I spent a little more and got a Diawa Ballistic 2000 and it is the best spinning reel I have ever used. Hope this helps.
