The Bassmaster Classic Expo was the first time the new Lew’s Mach II Speed Spool SLP baitcast reel was available for purchase.
Featuring the company’s innovative Super Low Profile (SLP) design, making it about 10% smaller in overall size than traditional baitcast reels, it has a premium 10-bearing system with double-shielded stainless steel bearings and a Zero Reverse anti-reverse clutch bearing.
Its machined 32mm anodised aluminum U-shape spool holds a lot of the magic as to why the compact reel casts so well. The smaller spool starts and accelerates quickly, meaning it handles even light lures and lines with ease. Cast control is provided by Lew’s externally adjustable MCS magnetic cast control system.
Lew’s had eight pros competing in the Classic on Lake Conro, Texas: Jason Christie, Bill Lowen, Randall Tharp, Wesley Strader, Jason Williamson, Drew Benton, John Garrett and Scott Clift.
