Customer Reviews Back to Top

Comments: I have been using the Tournament MB in the 6.8:1 and 7.5:1 ratios for about 8 months now, just about every weekend. They are smooth, very light, and have a small profile. I have been a life-long Abu Garcia user and I would put these reels in the same class as the Revo SX (which retails for $20 more). The Revo SX beats the Tournament MB in drag strength, but the Tournament MB has a more comprehensive cast-control system. I can't say that I can cast any farther with the Tournament MB than I can with the Revo SX, but I can certainly cast lighter lures (particularly crankbaits) into the wind with fewer backlashes while using the Tournament MB, than I can with the Revo SX. I have used the Tournament MB for all sizes of crankbaits, bladed jigs, swimbaits, topwaters, pitching applications, etc and they have performed very well in every situation. These reels are a great value at $139.99 that can hang with reels that retail for $20-$30 more.

From: Scott: Pine Bluff, AR 8/26/15

Comments: these reels are where the bells and whistles start for lew's. sleek design that fits in your hand really well, super smooth with 10 ball bearings. I read a complaint about the narrow spools and yes there is a narrow spool, however if your using a fast reel such as the 6.8:1, 7.5:1 or the new 8.3:1 then the spools are narrow. the 5.6:1 for crankin or slow rolling a spinnerbait then the spools are narrow but deep for more line capacity. very durable I fish over 300 days a year and my reels I got when they were first hit the market last year in the LFS models, are just as smooth and dependable as my new ones I got when the 8.3 model came out. do yourself a favor and try them out, you wont be disappointed.

From: Patrick: Manchester, TN 7/22/15

Comments: I have 2 of em with 12 and 15# floro. You can easily toss shadow rap jerkbait 50-60 yards or weighted plastic no problems with 0 backlashes dialed in properly with enough line capacity. I have 2 LFS and same results, though MB has better breaking than the LFS for lighter jigs. Cranking i do have BB1 pro but these little guys guys can move some line. 

From: Tom: OH 7/17/15

Comments: picked this reel up today and it is pretty slick. Have it matched up with the concept 13 omen black rod and it's a super light combo with plenty of speed and power.

From: Chris: Ralston, NE 6/16/15

Comments: First off, great reel. I paired it up on a denali kovert 7.8 xh for frogging and flipping, and right now have only used it for frogging and a little bed fishing with jigs. One of my new favorite combos. Very fast (7:5:1) but has a good amount of torque. Was not expecting it to be as small as my curado I, but it is. Only complaint is the thin spool. After fishing with my curado I, which can hold about 150 yards of 12 pound flouro, then fishing with a reel that can hold about 120 yards of 12. Big difference when you cast of half the spool full of 50 pound braid (power pro) when frogging. That is litteraly my only complaint, but it is a big one for me because I would NOT throw a spinnerbait, crankbait, jerkbait, etc. on this reel. Will get more and would highly recommend this, but if you are going to be making long casts up to 50, 60 yards, get any shimano, they all have VERY wide spools and a small frame.

From: Max: Burlington, VT 6/9/15

Comments: got this reel in 7.5.1 for flipping and pitching put it on a powell 7,5 max 3d the rod snaps on a 2 pounder so it put it on my 7ft med cranking duckett ghost rod and landed a monster 10 pounded and this reel performed great

From: Will: Birmingham, AL 2/19/15

Comments: Awesome real for the price..cast far and is extremely light. only problem is after a few months and about 200 fish the drag is giving out.. What i mean is when i set the hook on a 4 lber he shouldn't be able to take drag if they claim this has 14lb max drag and I've got it turned all the way up.

From: Austin: Birmingham, AL 2/12/15

Comments: This reel is AMAZING!!!  I have a Lews BB1 Pro series and this reel out casts the BB1. I absolutely love this reel, it is smooth as butter and casts a mile. I recommend this reel to any beginners or even Pro's. I only have it in the 5:6 gear ratio but I'm about to buy the 6:8.  I've casted this reel about a thousand times now and it still feels like new. For the money this reel is hard to beat. You can't go wrong with lew's.

From: Andrew: NC 12/28/14

Comments: so I got this reel as a gift for my bday, chose the 8.3.1 gear ratio. I like high speed reels because I feel I can do anything with them. So anyways, I paired it with a medium duckett ghost and some 12lb fluorocarbon and all I can say is wow. This is the smoothest reel I have owned. I have owned some abu garcias before this and I plan on sticking with Lew's. Haven't landed any beasts on it yet but intend to soon.

From: Randy: Cleveland, OH 12/27/14

Comments: The braking system is the best I've owned or seen  plus the spool it shows it has in st the real spool. The spool it comes with is identical to the lews bb1 pro spool. The spool holds so much line it's not even funny. This reel is as smoother as budder!!!

From: Bob: USA 12/26/14

Comments: pretty solid reel. Smooth and casts a fair distance. Haven't got it dialed in perfect yet. Let's see how long it holds up to them stripers. Very small and compact.

From: Space Monkey: Fresno, CA 12/22/14

Comments: I've always wanted to try Lew's reels so I bought a 5 speed, 6 speed and 7 speed Tournament MB to replace 3 of my PQ's. Now I know why Lew's users are fanatical. These reels are buttery smooth and packed with features. The dual braking system took a little trial and error but when you get the feel for using it WOW-its awesome and easy. I'll be replacing 3 more PQ's REAL soon-sorry BP. I'm Lew's for life! 

From: Don: USA 10/29/14

Comments: This is my third Lew's reel, and what can I say but that I'm very impressed. These new Lew's reels are packed full of features, technology and are even better than some of last years more expensive models. I don't think there is a better reel on the market that can give you all of these features for only $140.

From: Ryan: TX 10/25/14

Comments: Packed with features - best reel on the market for $140 or less. First impression - it has a cheap look and feel to it. But hey, it was only $140.  After getting it out on the water, you come to appreciate the value of the reel. Quick release sideplate. Clicking tension knob. The features all come in handy. Dual cast control - you don't know the benefits of dual cast control until you have mastered it. I've seen people tune it the wrong way and complain about it. Experiment if you're a novice. It's light, I can fish all day on it. I was disappointed that I had to add bearing oil, but whatever. 

From: Thor: MN 10/18/14

Comments: just bought the 8:3:1 and want to say it's the best reel I've ever owned. I use it for pitching and it allows me to easily get into a dock post or brush pile, work the spot, and get the bait in quick for another pitch. It's smooth and efficient as are all Lews and couldn't ask for a better reel.

From: Wisconsin Angling Outdoors: 10/14/14

Comments: TS1H has been golden for me I have the 6.4 ratio and it has performed flawlessly. Couldn't be happier with this reel. Lew's thanks so much for making a product that works well.
