Comments:  just got the team gold for $177! with the tw Mark down and forth of July sale. Also have 2 bb1 pros, super duty, and bb1 inshore. Bb1 pro has the best braking system and I was tempted to get a third but am so glad I got the gold. The pros are awesome but the the gold (and I'm sure the team pro since its basically a lighter gold) are amazingly smooth, nice reels. The tolerances are better and they are smoother. Probably due to the aluminum sideplates and tighter tolerances. The bb1 pro is a very close second but the team reels are the sh$#. It is the older model gold but the only difference between the old and new model is the color and lube port. A team gold for $177! Heck you can't beat that

Comments: ***Best reel ever *** i own many shimanos and this reel is a step past them

From: FL

Comments: I fish a lot. I have several different brand reels such as Abu Garcia and shimano, but these reels out perform them all. I have this reel and also have the tournement pro and they are the best reels I own. They fit my hand perfect and you can through baits forever with no backlashes. I absolutely love all of the lews reels and plan on purchasing more in the future.

From: Kendal: GA

Comments: Best reel I have ever owned!! I have fished for many years and have owned reels of all different makes and models, once you get your hands on this reel, you'll never want another.

From: Jason: VA

Comments: Love this reel, worth every penny!! I fish a lot, in all kinds of conditions hot, humid and rain reel has not let me down!!! Very rarely i get backlashes!!Go with LEWS there the best hands down!!

From: Adam: TX

Comments: Just spent the day throwing kvd 1.0 and 1.5 s.b's all day in winds of 20-25 mph throwing in the wind, turned the wind dial up not a single backlash and cast those small baits a mile! Ordering another one right now, love lews reels.

From: Josh: OK

Comments: I'm a lefty and I purchased the 7.1:1 and use it for flippin. It's great because I have more control flippin with my left hand and I can operate the thumbar and handle with my right. I dont see what the big deal is. When you use a spinning reel you usually reel with the oposite hand than you use with a baitcaster.

From: Todd: Indianapolis, IN

Comments: My favorite reel. It puts all of my high end Shimanos to shame. It feels like you're reeling in butter it is so smooth and it casts a country mile. It's hard for me to say this because I have been a die-hard Shimano fan for a while but Lew's is the top of the line now. Great quality and great customer service. Will be interesting to see how this reel holds up over the years.. I hope it will last me forever!!
