Customer Reviews

Comments: These rods do not get the attention that they deserve. I own the 6'10" MH fast, and it is the most versatile rod I've ever owned. It's plenty sensitive enough for Texas rigged plastics and contact baits, is excellent with square bill cranks & is even great for frogs, spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, and topwaters. Not to mention the hook keeper is in the trigger. The rod is lightweight and incredibly well balanced. On top of a lifetime warranty and Lews A+ customer service, you would be hard pressed to find a better rod at this price. Highly recommended.

Comments: I have the 7'6"MH and this rod is very lightweight and balanced with a BB1 Pro reel. I was very happy with the sensitivity also. I've fished much more expensive rods than this and this rod surpasses most with sensitivity. I've fished: jigs, Texas rigs, weightless senkos, swimbaits with this rod and it does it all with perfect feel. Lew's picked a perfect color for this rod also. Great job Lew's!

From: Darren: NC 3/21/15

Comments: The 7"3 version of this rod is unreal. Very versatile in terms that it's perfect for yanking fish out of mats while chucking a hollow body frog or punching thick mats. Even an extra heavy rod it still  very sensitive, yet very strong. I give this rod a 5 out of 5. Just to add the hook holder is like no other , stationed rate under the reel seat. Impressed to say the least.

Comments: Very nice rods here!!! I bought the 7'10" flipping stick for flipping when needed and Alabama rig mostly. This is my favorite rod I have used for the Alabama rig. There's also a 7'9" but I didn't want the long handle. These are great looking rods.

From: Darren: NC

Comments: This is a really nice feeling rod, looks great with the color on the blank and carbon fiber look on the lower quarter of the blank. The only flaw I notice is some of the guides on the rod I bought  isn't straight but I'm sure will be fine. I think it's going to be one I'll use a lot!

From: David: NC

Comments: I own a 7'2 med hvy mod fast and a 7'4 hvy mod fast and they are both very very nice. The hook keeper is in the trigger for those who got burned by the older team Lews and may have doubts. They are solid rods, very detailed from end to end. Thumbs up to Lews.

From: Tim: TX

Comments: Lews hit it out of the park with the Lews Tournament Series Reel, but now they have come out with the HM85 6'10" rod. It is the best spinnerbait and buzz bait rod I have ever used! I have now discovered it is great for throwing a squarebill and a small finess jig. Its the most versatile rod I've used.
