Looks like Swindle is part of Team Lews for 2020.

Quantum has had some heavy influencers in the industry leave this year with KVD joining the Lews Team in September.

And I believe this is the second long time partnership change that Swindle has had this fall. He is running a Phoenix in 2020 after two decades with Triton.

Probably won’t be long and he will be s a Strike King guy. All the Strike King guys switched to Lews so see no reason it won’t go the other way also.

Hope he has better luck with those Purple POS ProTi’s than I did. I bought three, returned all three with the handles torn off.

Poor guy.

Sponsorship doesn’t mean I’ll be influenced to buy Lews products. Swindle whose a great angler, I think made a Bad decision to go with them. In my mind Lews manufactures [censored].

I’ll stick to shimano, thank you very much woot

BDT Capital owns Lews Holding Company. One of the brands under the Lews Holding Company is Strike King. I would expect the Lews portfolio to improve some in the coming years if these industry influencers provide feedback on the products themselves.

So you saying G-Man may be running a donut wrapped Phoenix in the future? That may be very comical with his comedy skits... He can do a skit getting pulled over by the cops who are looking for free handouts

Quantum had some leadership changes at the end of 2018 before all the pros started leaving.

I don’t know anyone who uses quantum. Wouldn’t be shocked if they were sold or something.

From someone that has used both quantum and lews he definitely made the right move and major upgrade.
