Comments: Recieved this reel a couple days ago and paired it with a Dobyns DX 745 for bottom contact jigs. This things casts great and the brake controls are the best so far. Its super light weight too. Outcasts my revo sx by far, but doesn't feel as smooth on retrieve... has a grainy feel to it but hope it goes away after several more uses. Other than that its everything I was expecting it to be.

Comments: This thing casts light cranks really well. It throws them farther than my steez and mgx, both upgraded with ceramic hybrid bearings. I'm impressed with this reel and lews in general. If you bye one you will like it and you will become a lews user (Lewser). When you need high performance at a reasonable price, this lite is hard to beat. I still like my other reels and this won't replace them, but it will be a prominent addition to my other setups. A great addition at that! A bang for your buck reel.

Comments: Have fished with this reel a couple times so far and I really like it. it is super smooth and takes in line faster than any other reel that I own. and it has adjustments like crazy. the price is a little bit high but it is all worth it.

From: Devon: USA 1/10/15

Comments: A comparison might be helpful. I own a steez, mgx and metanium. I'm not a brand homer I'm like a lot of people who just might have to many baitcasters. The team lite stacks up very well against the high end models I have. Remarkable casting distance with small and medium cranks. Very light, an absolute bargain reel! I'm not ditching the others but this thing found a place in my line-up. It's not a steez or metanium, but man for the price you can't go wrong. It out casts my other reels, all with upgraded bearings. If your looking for a great reel, there's a lot of brands and choices available, but I don't think you can get this performance without paying a lot more.

From: Lew: Lewiston, ID 1/6/15

Comments: Wow this reel is amazing. Its light and casts a mile handles large fish with ease. Lews has got a winner in this one!

From: Ben: AL 1/2/15

Comments: Took it out yesterday for the first time. Fished a rattletrap and crankbaits in grass. Every time I brought the grass in with me, The reel really seemed to struggle with the heavier stuff coming in, almost like it couldn't handle it, and was very difficult to crank the handle when grass and other stuff came back with your lure. while my tournament pro does not do this, the tp is also more powerful in my opinion. But I love this reel so far, feels great and casts like a bullet. I was getting really long casts on light crankbaits. Really impressed with the casting distance, haven't been able to get that long of casts from any other reel. Disappears in your hand, and is an absolute pleasure to fish with, besides what I mentioned above. This reel would be great for light stuff, and 'reel-in' baits but not big baits

From: Chris: USA 12/23/14

Comments: Reel is light and smooth. Sits a little lower than the team pro. But does feels kinda cheap and plastically compared to the Lews Team pro

From: Anthony: CA 11/24/14

Comments: Very light and compact. Feels very good in the hand. It casts a mile too! This thing is the ultimate reel, and Lew's is the ultimate reel company.

From: Reece: Fargo, ND 11/23/14

Comments: Super lightweight and comfortable reel. Was really amazed by how smooth and quiet this reel was. It feels really durable considering the weight. I caught a few 3's pulling out of thick thick coverage with ease. I would definitely recommend it to any and everyone!

From: Kong: Fort Smith, AR 11/22/14

Comments: Bought this reel with a 7'6" mh Omen and it is the best set up. it can cast a mile and has the smoothest reeling ever. Add some reel grips and you have the comfiest lightest, best reel ever.

From: Max: Avon, CT 11/10/14

Comments: the reel is super light and cast very well. Took it out today and caught a 3lb wit ease great reel overall.

From: Leng: CA 10/24/14

Comments: The reels are lite and sit low on the rod. Very comfortable to palm, the cast control is great, and the drag is super effective! Overall awesome reels!!!

From: Tyler: Waco, TX 10/16/14

Comments: Great feeling reel!!! Very smooth and super lightweight. You can hardly tell it's in your hand its so lightweight. It's made of super strong carbon for durability. Only thing, I'm not sure why Lew's made the reel this color? The color of this reel doesn't match any rods that Lew's makes. why not Black/Red or Black/white to match the Lew's rods?
