How durable is Lew’s, and can you fish inshore?

Recommended Posts

I handled some lews reels today and really like the feel of them. See, i freshwater and saltwater fish and i cannot find if lews is salt water safe. This is making me lean towards Daiwa because know their reels are built for salt and fresh (and by the way, when i go saltwater fishing, afterwards i always wash off all my reels.)

It depends on the model regardless of brand

I have one of the older, silver Lew's Inshore models and it's been a great reel.  I can't remember the model name off hand, but it has the dual braking system like a Tournament Pro.  I think it may have a wider or deeper spool as well. 

 

It has only been used a few times a year in the salt though, so I can't say much about its durability.  I have not had any trouble with any of the Lew's reels I own.

 

Tight lines,

Bob
