The Lew's BB2 Wide Speed Spool Series Baitcast Reel has all the great features of the legendary BB1, but in a wide spool design that holds more line for big lures, long casts, and big fish. With a one-piece aluminum frame and graphite side plates, this reel is strong and lightweight. Quick-release side plate mechanism provides easy access to spool and centrifugal brake system. The machine-forged, double-anodized aluminum spool has a U-shape and a large capacity for using more line. Other features include a 95mm bowed aluminum cranking handle with Lew's SoftTouch paddle knobs, a handle-side aluminum spool tension knob with audible clicker, and an external lube port.
The BB2 Wide Speed Spool reel comes ready for action with a premium ten-bearing drive system that includes double-shielded ball bearings and a Zero-Reverse anti-reverse bearing. The result is smooth performance and reliable retrieves, every time. Positive on/off SmartPlus 6-pin Centrifugal Braking System (CBS) makes for accurate casts with no backlash. Also, the audible-click bowed, anodized metal star drag attaches to the carbon fiber drag system, providing rugged performance and up to 14 lbs. of drag power.
