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.
I fish, ontario and ny during summer. make trips to fl, And Texas during winter. My website is
