Lews lfs speed spool vs Lews tournament mg

I used to hate bait casters due to me always backlashing them when trying out my friends. Recently took the time to learn how to use one and now really enjoy borrowing my friends. I want to invest in my own and have it narrowed down to two.

The tournament mg which is 139.99 and has 11 ball bearings and could handle 14 pounds of drag. The speed spool is 99.99 with 10 ball bearings and only 10 pounds of drag. Those were the only differences I was able to find and I was wondering if anyone has either of these and could give some feedback on them. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Please and Thank you.

I use the 100$ Lews reels and they are really nice for the price and perform well, very smooth and cast really well....can't give any feedback on the 140$ model!

Re: Lews lfs speed spool vs Lews tournament mg

I started using bait casters back around 1980.
at the time I dropped a heap on the newest fangled bait caster on the market ,it had a mechanical spool break.

since then I have learned that all the technology has essentially peaked out ,they are all pretty much the same.
the only real differences are "fit" and materials.

when I buy a new baitcaster I go for hand fit above all
followed by the cheaper price.

materials do matter ,but only to a point.in most cases with avg use they all will last many many years. I would only invest large amounts of cash into reels for extreme use or conditions
I have only once spent more then $100 for a reel but that was only because it was for inshore saltwater use that ate standard gear up

the reason I say this is because I more often have found that having 2 mid priced/quality reels on hand with 2 different baits better then 1 expensive one i'm always tying a new bait too
