New for 2016, the Lew's Team Pro Magnesium Speed Spool Casting Reel ups the ante by lowering the weight - coming in at just 5.3oz. As Lew's continues to gain popularity among bass fishermen, they seek to raise the bar with each and every new model they introduce. The Team Lew's Pro Magnesium Speed Spool does just that. Weighing a mere 5.3-ounces, this gold-accented black beauty features a compact one-piece magnesium frame with carbon C45 sideplates, double anodized U-shape Duralumin drilled spool and 85 MM genuine carbon fiber handle with lightweight custom EVA foam cork knobs. The Pro Magnesium Speed Spool also features two new Lew’s exclusive and patent-pending innovations: the Speed Dial line indicator for keeping track of what line type and weight has been spooled, and the built-in Speed Keeper hook keeper that retracts out of the way when not in use.
The guts of the Pro Magnesium Speed Spool are highlighted by the high strength, hard anodized, aluminum gears which deliver powerful smooth, powerful performance. Speaking fo power, the rugged carbon fiber drag system exhibits 14lbs of max drag - more than enough for bass fishing and up to snuff with any reel you'd like use for stripers or other freshwater species of gamefish. As mentioned above, these reels have a slightly different handle than most of the Lew's models you are probably familiar with. Instead of the big paddles, the Team Lew's Pro Magnesium Speed Spool utilizes a 85mm carbon fiber handle with EVA foam/cork mix knobs. Overall, this reel has a very aggressive look to it with performance features to match.
We offer the Lew's Team Pro Magnesium Speed Spool Casting Reel in three models: TLM1H (6.8:1 - RH), TLM1SHL (7.5:1 - LH), TLM1SH (7.5:1 - RH).
