Looking at the LEWS TOURNAMENT PRO but not sold on it. Was going to buy 2 reels so if two different types or model advise will be great. Will be fishing Large Mouth Bass. Peacocks and some inland tarpon.

Loc: Kaufman...kind of.
I've got a bevy of the Lew's BB1 Pro reels. Planning on picking up at least one more. If you shop around you can get them for about $150-$160.

I think you could use some line capacity for tarpon. Maybr a Abu 6500C3 or perhaps a 6600C4 if you are going to be casting a great deal.

The best 200 dollar reel I know is 28 Zebco 404s at 7 dollars apiece
Equals 196 dollars.

After all the positive reviews i had heard the last 3 years or so about lews.
i went out and bought a hand full of them... after a week of pre-fish and a 2 day tournament, listed and sold them on a local fishing forum. Really nothing special to me. Needless to say found out after, that some of the reviews i was reading where written by 15 year old kids, on there pro staff..
Not a bad reel, but not what i expect to pay $200 for.


Duckett 320 or the daiwa tatula (pick a version) or Shimano Chronarch CI4 ($220 ish on ebay)
Do own and love all of these, i am absolutely in love with the daiwa t-wing, they are my favorite reel i own.

Tell you what, find the SOB that stole a bunch of my stuff a while back. I'm sure he'd trade you a nice reel like a Calcutta 300 or a Penn 320 GTI just to name a few for say....a rock of crack. splat

But seriously, keep an eye on the TFF classified fishing section for good used super tuned reels. They'll last you a life time. Like Steven said, the Shimano Chronarch is a good choice as is the Calcutta, and the Curado. The Abu Revo comes to mind too.
