Customer Reviews Back to Top

Comments: lews reels are the best all around casting reel. I have 8 Lew's reels paired with duckett rods and by far my best all around setups. With a #5 shad rap 6'10" medium duckett ghost/lews speed spoil lfs has that #5 40 yds cast avg.... Not bad for a $200 combo

From: Ryan: Lake Murray, SC 3/22/15

Comments: Kind of shocked to hear people in the various message boards talk bad about Lews & this reel. For $100, this is the reel to get. I like the old version but this one is MUCH better. Lighter & more streamlined.

From: Jay6: USA 2/27/15

Comments: living in a deep southern state I've used this reel for almost every technique possible on a bait casting reel. From throwing weightless stick worms on fluorocarbon to flipping big weights into heavy cover with braid this reel has held up to everything. Incredible casting distance and superior handling of fish. From heavy tourney fishing to pond hopping I always have this reel

From: Chris: Madison, MS 1/27/15

Comments: This is a great reel. I've been using it for about three months, and it has caught me a lot of fish. This reel casts buttery smooth, and is perfect for just about any type of fishing. I highly recommend this reel.

From: Clayton: Buford, GA 1/24/15

Comments: Great real for the money. Solid and works smoothly I just wish Lew's lower models would have more than a ten pound drag. And if you read the review from the gentleman below. The high capacity spools are not "drilled" as you say, so if you get a cranker (5.6:1) it should be smooth. Whiffle spools are the high speed ones.

From: Mike: Grand Rapids, MI 1/18/15

Comments: Not sure about the guy below but my reel came with the drilled spool. Anyways for $99 man what a steal! Great reel and built right. With 12lb floro this thing will cast a mile. Buy it, you can thank me later.

From: Brady: SC 1/13/15

Comments: My LFS does not appear as represented (no drilled spool) and worse, surprisingly poor spool rotation when spun under zero tension, even with the magnets removed - Big bummer! Resist the same temptation to try based on the high enthusiasm expressed by prior reviews„ The LFS is not in the same league as higher quality Lew's reels. To summarize, expect value without high performance. Important: If a class standard helps, compare ANY baitcaster to a Lew's BB1 in terms of casting distance and control. Other: In fairness, don't rule out that I somehow ended up with a non-current version. Check your spool against the ad photos!

From: Brian: MN 1/4/15

Comments: just ordered 4 of these. Excelant reel for the money. I have 2 in 7.5:1 ratio (my favorite) and two in 6.8:1. These reels cast pretty far. Not as far as my tournament pro and tournament lite. But fr the money, yu can't beat the LFS series! I have caught so many bass in tournaments with these reels. I have used shimano, abu garcia, and daiawa. None of them beat lews. If u r looking for a lews reel, check out the lews speed spool LFS series. You cant beat it.

From: Kenneth: Kingwood, TX 1/3/15

Comments:  I've never owned any of the "better" bait casters like shimano or quantum. Keep in mind I have nothing against these companies. I have casted my friends different reels which include shimano and quantum and they are nowhere close to the quality of lews. Lets just say my friend sold ALL of his reels to replace them with lews and this specific reel is better than any $100-$300 reel I've used before. Please do yourself a favor and at least buy a lews reel, if you don't like it then stay with your original reels, but that is unlikely to happen because you will find out how good these reels really are 

From: Ryan: Inverness, FL 1/3/15

Comments: Smooth as all hell from 1/32 to 1.5 once horsed a 11.04lber from under a dock in Discovery bay in 15ft of water with no problem at all!

From: Jeremy: San Pablo, CA 12/30/14

Comments: I would love to see every fisherman purchase one of these LFS series reels and use them side by side with any other reel that they own. They are so light and smooth you just won't believe it till you use one. The drag is smooth as silk, and you can cast lures from 1/8 oz to 1 oz, and far as you need to. Friends of mine have told me over the years to try a Lews and finally I did and now I'm trying my to sell my Shimanos and Revos to replace them with Lew's. Magnificent reels, but don't take my word for it, try one out, you'll see.

From: Wildbillbilly: Hohenwald, TN 11/28/14

Comments: I am really impressed with this reel so far for the price. I can palm this thing perfectly. It cast like a dream so far and once I got it dialed in I didn't even have to rest my thumb at all to avoid any backlashes into the wind, love the simplicity of just the external brake adjustment. It works very well and I don't have to open to make any other adjustments. The drag is a little light and when crimped down can be a little jerky, but for Bass not much of an issue at all as I'll usually use the the spool release and my thumb to fight the fish anyways if needed.

From: Joe: Bucks, PA 11/10/14

Comments: Just got this reel in the 7:5:1 gear ratio, first day taking it out I caught a 3.5 and a 4lber. Couldn't ask for a better reel for the price point. Plus it looks sexy on my duckett rods

From: Jacob: KY 10/20/14

Comments: Got one of these in the 6.8:1 for spinnerbaits, buzz baits, chatter baits etc and WOW. For only $100 this is an amazingly smooth, quiet and casts a mile even into 30 mph winds! Definitely getting another!

From: Landon: Denton, TX 10/13/14

Comments: I bought one of these in the 7:5:1 gear ratio about a month ago. I have using several other major manufacters reels that are 3 times the price. No more...This is my first Lews. Won't be my last. Smooth, quiet, great reel all together. The fall small mouth bite has put this reel to the test and it has handled it well. And for a price you can't beat! 

From: Mike: Marinette, WI 10/13/14

Comments: This reel is UNBELIEVABLE!! Don't spend the extra money on other reels.Just get these and save a bunch of money and be happy.Just used mine for the first time today and could not believe how well it worked.Started with a buzzbait throwing it a mile and then could cast a 1/8 oz hair jig easily.Landed 6 of 8 and it was smooth as silk.And the 7.5:1 is a plus.

From: Larry: Milan, TN 10/12/14

Comments: I recently purchased one of the lews lfs speed spool. It is AMAZING! I hsve an Abu Garcia Rvo s, and my lews out preforms it by a lot. I recommend this reel for any angler thats looking for quality for a cheap price.

From: Chris: Winchester, TN 9/29/14

Comments: This reel is insane for a $99 casting. The LFS series is lighter than the previous and balances well on just about any quality rod. This second generation Speed Spool also comes standard with a swept handle which is a nice addition over the first generation. They've also changed up the gear ratios and now offer a 7:5:1 that is a huge bonus at a reel at this price point. Customer service with them is outstanding as well. I challenge you to find a reel at this price that can perform the way the new Lews LFS Speed Spool does. Dont hesitate to buy them. Tight lines!!!
