Is the base model Lews reel that is $100 a good reel? Anything better for $100? Bought one of the Vandettas from Walmart for $30 and am looking for a inexpensive reel to put on it. I really didn't need another but they were too cheap so now I gotta have a reel for it. Got a 7-0 medium for shallow CB and spinner baits. What do y'all recommend? Revo? Lews?

I own two of the $100 speed spools, one tournament mg, one tournament pro and i recently purchased a laser mg. I really like them all. The $100 speed spools you are asking about cast very well and I have no complaints with them, because of my success with them I see no need to purchase any more of the more expensive speed spools. I will be buying more of the $100 ones in the future. Hope this helps.

I have thrown a frog on 80lb braid on one for 2 years now and I have never even cleaned it. The only reel I own that I never have done any maintenance on and it still works flawlessly.

They are very good reels for 100 bucks and IMHO hard to beat I really like the tournament mg for 29 more bucks I have about 10 Lews now and they are all great.

The Lews are great reels and you won't think twice about your decision after using it all day!

I have used every level of reel Lew's makes and, have always been satisfied.

The Lew's Speed Spool is a great reel and hard to beat for the money. The Laser MG series has a graphite frame and is $20 cheaper, but the Speed Spool is my first choice because it's smoother and just an overall good reel. You'll love it.
