You will like it. I really like all My Lews BB1's and BB2 Inshores. I prefer them over the ABU Reels my son thinks so much of.

I have four go-to set-ups and they're all Lew's reels on Kistler rods.
For my money, you can't beat Lew's reels.

Lews casting is the deal just need them to step up on the spinning side.

I've been looking at Lew's and Abu Garcia's and was surprised to find out they are both made in China. Guess I shouldn't be, about everything related to fishing is made somewhere else. Every PFD BPS sells is imported.
Kast King gets a bad rap about their reels because they are made in China. Guess Lew's and Abu Garcia have better Chinese workers. hmmm

Only the lower end Lews are made in China, the higher end stuff is made on Korea.

I have 16 Tournament Pros, 3 Customs, and 3 Inshore... I like them! cheers

Hey Ronnie, are all your Lews reels upper end?

Or a Mix?

I've been told even the cheaper models are solid as heck.

Just curious.

Haven't bought it yet Fish, the one I'm looking at is a Lew's Tournament MB Speed Spool LFS Reel - 8.3:1 - model number TS1XHMB and it says made in China. Don't know if they consider it a cheaper model or not, definitely not the most expensive but not the cheapest either.

If that is your first Lews, get ready to buy more of them. I have a bunch of them and haven't had a single issue with any of them.

I also have an original (old style) Lews BB1 NG, new in the box.

Ronnie,

I don't know where they draw the line between the China reels and the Korean reels, my two original Inshore's were $139.99, same as the reel you posted, and they're both made in China, all of my other reels were $179.99 and up, with all that being said, my original Inshore's perform just as well as any of the higher end reels that i have! All in all, IMO you really can't go wrong with any of them.
