Equipment Review: Lew’s New Custom Speed Spin Spinning Reels

Western Outdoor NewsPublished: Jan 23, 2019

A range of advanced technologies and performance enhancing features that every degree of angler can appreciate


Offering a great product at a great price is key for any company that wants to be in the game of providing equipment to anglers. Fishermen know when something isn’t up to snuff, and less than adequate could mean losing the fish of a lifetime or the winning fish in a tournament. One thing’s for certain – anglers shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to have a spinning reel that performs.

The new Lew’s Custom Speed Spin is the perfect spinning reel for savvy weekend or tournament anglers. 7 premium stainless steel bearings make this reel ultra-smooth, and an aluminum body/sideplate with a flush and drain port (available in 200-400 models) make it powerful and ready to battle the toughest fighting fish. High strength Speed Gears and a smooth sealed carbon drag system means both power and smoothness for letting a fish take big runs. For solid grip, power and comfort, the Winn Dri-Tac handle knob is a valuable feature.

The new Custom Speed Spin spinning reel is offered in four sizes at a great price of $99.99 MSRP
