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
