Customer Reviews

Comments: Powerful workhorse of a reel that is smooth, cast great & is rugged. Not the lightest but very solid for high torque, heavy cover type techniques. I have 2 so far for frogs, swim baits, swim jigs, etc. but they can be used for other things. Basically if I'm going with braid or heavy flouro I'm using these! I tried a Beast first and this a better reel for half the price! All Lews for me now!!

From: Rick: AR 9/6/16

Comments: I own tons of these and the tournament pro & the super duty is my go to I cant put it down especially when it comes to flipping!

From: Blake: Mobile, AL 5/24/16

Comments: I own 4 of these reels for flipping, pitching, and frogs. There great reels I landed a 33" 12lbs flathead while flipping in heavy grass mattes with 65lb braid and not one problem bringing it in. Will be purchasing more lews reels in the future.

From: Dan: PA 2/916

Comments: Great reel. I own 3, in 3 different gear ratios. I've yet to find an issue with the Super Duty. After MANY hours on the water, these things hold up and allow me to fish without any stress about my reels.

From: Adam: Nashville, TN 12/26/15

Comments: This is an absolutely great reel. Casts far right out of the box, has good powerful drag system, easy to tune. I use this reel for mainly flipping, but you can just about do everything with it, you can throw big size swim baits all the way down to weightless senkos. Lew's hit the jackpot with this one!

From: Johnny: Lake St. Louis, MO 12/10/15

Comments: This is my designated deep cranking reel. Casts far, braking works surprisingly well & lots of cranking power. The finish is holding up nicely. Highly recommended.

From: Carl: UT 8/27/15

Comments: I have many Lew's Reels, and have had wonderful luck with them thus far. From Team models, BB1s, and even the Speed Spools, they have worked out great. I have been fishing my Super Duty 8:1 on my frog rod & it is a dream. It's silly how far I can cast a Spro on 65# braid. The drag is nice and even, and it is a beast. I intend on replacing a couple of my punching rigs with these. If you're on the fence, I think you'll be happy with it.

From: Mac: Longview, TX 5/24/15

Comments: This is an amazing reel. I can sling a 6" BBZ-1 a true mile. Extremely light and powerful reel. The only disadvantage is that it only has the magnetic breaks and not the centrifugal...

From: Dylan: USA 1/10/15

Comments: This reel is my new favorite reel from lews, got the 8:0.1 for my flipping stick and I'm very impressed. Extremely smooth and sleek design. I'm also a big fan of the drag. I'd recommend this reel to anyone. No complaints. Lews is on a roll, by far the best out there.

From: JT: FL 10/16/14

Comments: The 5.4:1 is great for casting all size crankbaits. Very smooth and casts long, even the small baits.

From: Darren: USA 7/14/14

Comments: This was my first LEW'S reel to buy and there will be many more to come. Right out of the box this reel was simply amazing in many ways. I bought the Super Duty 7.1:1 as a frog and topwater reel and it has performed flawlessly so far. I like my Abu Revo SX, but I LOVE this LEW'S. Casts further, retrieves smoother, and fits my hand better. LEW'S had my curiosity but now they have my undivided attention. Buy with complete confidence.

From: Garrett: Woodville, TX 4/3/14

Comments: I just bought the 5.4:1 and it is great like all my lews. korea is a leader in technology just like japan. the Korean factory just builds the reels according to the manufacturers specs. its not like they are pumping out reels and slapping a brand name on them. I own revos, shimanos, and just recently lews and they are the best hands down.

From: Will: MI

Comments: Love it!  I have a 7.1:1 that I spooled with 22lb Shooter that I use for flipping and throwing football jigs.  It has great casting ability, and a smooth, effortless, retrieve that is nice.  The drag is solid and the reel has the power to pull fish out of heavy cover.  Yet again, Lew's has put out a great reel at a great price!

From: Keegan: IA

Comments: I've used this reel all summer/fall for frogging, pitching jigs in heavy cover, and throwing swimbaits for muskie and it is fantastic. Definitely worth every penny...

From: Dennis: PA

Comments: I have used this reel for 2 weeks and have already landed several bass around 3-5 pounds. I own a Curado 200e7 and this reel casts farther and is much smoother in the retrieve, cast, and drag. I could immediately tell the parts used in the reel were much higher quality than the Shimano or Abu Garcia's I compared it to at Cabela's.

From: James: Wichita Falls, TX USA

Comments: I bought this reel for froggin in thick grass mats. It works awesome. I keep the magnetic brake set at 2 and can cast a frog a country mile with no issues. I think i actually like this reel better than my Lews tournament pro. Its just as light and smooth as the tournament pro but simpler to use because all it has is the magnetic brake, but that's all it needs.

From: Cameron: Manassas, Virginia

Comments: This reel covers every application needed in fishing. I have the Team Lew's Pro as well but this Super Duty 5.4:1 is my crankbait reel for shad raps to DD22's and also the Alabama rig reel. The 6.4:1, is for spinnerbaits and square bills. Then 7.1:1 for topwater, jigs, frogs, senko, Texas rig, flukes. You can't go wrong with this reel. It's very smooth and ZERO issues after a full year of using. I haven't had to clean or add oil or anything, still performance is as new. It casts LONG and I'm able to skip great with this reel.... Simply the best!!!

From: Darren: NC

Comments: Put some 65# Power Pro on this reel and have a great day with the Alabama rig or Frog fishing. Then I use regular line on these Super Duty as well for all my other baits, from cranking with the 5.4 to jigs with 7.1, this reel is perfection. I have all the models and I pick this one up the most and the Team Lew's Pro is AMAZING as well.... You will replace all your reels after using the Lew's

From: Darren: NC

Comments: The part on the ICast video that says this reel it built for big line and and big baits refers to as the way is built(heavy gearing and tough),not line capacity.But, if you can cast a 100 yards(300 ft.) with 65lbs. of braid which has @ 16lb.mono diameter or any line by the way,then you are on a league of your own, KVD can cast 70+ yards on 10 lb. test fluoro on his signature cranking rod, so for someone to spool out this reel full of braid that heavy needs to use a bare 1 1/2 oz. weight casting with the wind. Bottom line is that this is an awsome reel that can cast jigs, spoons,spinnerbaits, umbrella rigs and even light stuff with ease. Great performing machine overall!

From: Charlie: Trenton,NJ, USA

Comments: Got my reel today, I got this reel to throw an A-Rig with, the reel itself it sweet!!! But, I will go ahead and give you an observation that I noticed immediately, the ICast video says that this reel is made for big line and big baits, however, I use Suffix 65 lb. Performance braid and the reel didn't hardly hold any line, the spool size is the same as all the other Lew's reels which is small, so don't buy this reel and expect to load it with a lot of big braid, I loaded it off of a 150 yard spool and filled the reel to the max and it didn't even put a dent in the spool

From: Jason: Pennington Gap, VA

Comments: I got this reel for the A rig and it is a jewel of a reel. It is smooth and feels great on the retrieve just like every LEWS reel I have. Feels really string and well built, I am pretty sure will last for ever.Buy one and you won't regret it!

From: Charlie: Trenton,NJ USA

Comments: This is one AMAZING reel. Don't hesitate to buy this one! I have this in every gear ratio and these are flawless. These are so smooth, I can cast a shad rap further than a spinning rod combo with the 5.4:1 reel. Lew's is the best reels hands down. I have tried them all and Lew's has my vote. Try one and you won't buy another name brand after using a Lew's.
