Big line, big fish, and big strength are what come to mind when looking at the Lew's Speed Cast Round Baitcasting Reel. Durability is the name of the game with Speed Cast, as its anodized aluminum frame and side plates provide a no-flex housing for the internal gearing. An anodized aluminum spool adds further strength, and a 100mm power handle with oversize EVA knobs provides more cranking leverage for bringing in tough fish.
Inside is a five-bearing drive system with stainless steel, double-shielded ball bearings and a Zero Reverse one-way clutch bearing for reliable performance. Drag is a carbon fiber system easily controlled by its aluminum star, leaving no doubt that this reel can be tough and smooth at the same time. The 6-pin centrifugal brake system also allows for accurate casting. Brass main gear and crankshaft ensure that strength is a top priority. Also includes an audible bait clicker.
