Built with the tournament angler in mind, the Lew's Tournament Lite Speed Spool Casting Reel delivers lightweight, powerful performance you can count on when the stakes are high.

Comments: I just got this one and the Tournament MB and have used a few times so far with Suffix braid on both for jigs and swimjigs.Have the MB on a 7'3 13 fishing mh rod and this on a 7'2 mh Tatula rod.  About the same size as the MB but the MB is a tad smaller at the front. The MB is shaped slightly more pointed at the top front where the line guide is. I think cause its part of the LFS series, but just barely a difference in shape. This LITE is slightly rounded more, closer to the shape of the Tournament Pro to me which I have also and love. Both reels are amazing smooth on the retrieve. Both reels cast a 3/8 jig amazingly far with barely any effort and little dialing in on the breaks. I haven't tried anything lighter on these yet though. Total quality on these reels and solid. I have no problems with the Drag on either reels. The drag on this light seems very strong to me. I tightened it up to test and does not budge. Same with the MB. Love Lews cause just get no problems such as birds nests with light lures and still long long casts.

Comments: Super "lite," casts everything a mile, no trouble casting a light crankbait INTO the wind, drag not that smooth and not a ton of torque, but will work GREAT as an all around reel. Definitely would recommend this to anyone.

Comments: WOW!  Great little, light reel!  I fished it today for about an hour with a senko. Nothing caught, but very smooth, VERY quiet reel!  Palms well, a little larger then a 50E Shimano. Well built and very solid feeling reel! The only knock I can determine is the dial on the side is a little difficult to turn. Meaning, I have big hands and my fingers do not fit in there too well.  But, no difficulty with turning the dial though. Just my big Gorilla hands!
