Like the title says - Which Lews reels are made in Korea and which ones are made in China?

I am specifically interested in the Lew's® Tournament MB Speed Spool® LFS Series but, for the benefit of others, don't stop there.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

I've got one Super Duty and several BB1 Pro reels. All made in Korea.

IMHO the Korean built reels are going to be a better reel. Better gears and bearings. Korea is where most the the better and higher cost reels are being built now.

Not sure about all of them, but my BB1 and BB2 Inshores are Korean. Lews makes great reels.

My "American Hero" Laser AH1SH has a big fat "CHINA" sticker on it. frown

I believe it is the "cheaper" Laser series of reels with the Graphite frames that are being built in China. That's why they are cheap. Stick with the Korean made ones. Quick note just to show the quality of some other manufacturers. But even Quantum's EXO reel is made in China. And buddy let me tell you. After servicing a few of those EXO's myself you can definitely tell they were made in China. Every part is cheaply made. Id stay away from any China made reel if you want it to last.

I agree that's a good idea.
I got the AH1SH as one of the combos in a deal of four rods and reels.
I'll try it out and see how it works, but probably won't use it when going for "quality" fish. Most my other reels are Shimano or Abu Garcia.
