Lew's Made By Pure Fishing?

Recommended Posts

Just heard in the local tackle store that they were 100% sure the new Lew's reels were being manufactured by pure fishing??? anyone know if this is true?

It seems like this topic comes up every couple of days. Does it really matter who manufacturers them?

I'm glad that I heard wrong. I actually heard they were made by the same people who makes abu garcia's. and yes it does matter who manufactures them especially if i don't like other reels that they manufacture and it is MY preference as to what I buy. so yes it does matter to me. say if you don't like a particular car manufacturer and they manufacture other cars under another name. don't you think that some of the characteristics and errors of the parent company will trickle into the other product?

I'd be willing to bet they're made in the same factory in Korea that builds reels for BPS and Pure Fishing. The current owner of Lews was a buyer and product developer for BPS for almost 30 years.

Abu Garcia, Pflueger, Wright & McGill, Penn low profiles, Lews, many BPS and Johnny Morris models, are all manufactured by the same company.
