That's a $70 +/- reel. Have a couple not that great. For $60 shipped probably ok.

I’ve got a Lews Speed Spool Laser American Hero combo , lower end set up and I really like it. For the price it’s a great reel”. These reels will get the job done , a $129 reel for $ 55 is a win for me . I promise I can make any fishing kids day by giving it to them !!

Exactly. Are they the high end reels no but I can bang the hell out of them in the Gator at the ranch and not worry.

Me too, no deal. Looks like they are out of stock online and cancelled it. They do however show to have one in stock at my local Academy. If it is $69.99 off the shelf I'm probably still a buyer, gonna stop by tonight and find out.

Like another poster I fished for a long time using a spinning reel left handed and it always felt natural. Makes no sense to me, to cast with my dominant hand, then have to switch hands to retrieve, which leaves me trying to set the hook with my off hand. My 1st baitcaster was Right Handed and it always felt backwards and like I was constantly having to juggle the rod & reel.

Switched to a left handed model and havenít looked back

That's a pretty good deal. I can remember buying a Lew's Speed Stick from his shop in Foley, Alabama back in the late 70's early 80's.

For those of you needing a new rod, to match those new reels, look at FX Custom rods. The new Xtreme Angler Series rod from them, is probably the best rod you will find, in the $130 range, with the best warranty in the business.
