The New Generation of Lew's Reels

It was the late Lew Childre who started many of today's popular baitcast features, such as the low-profile design, a palming side cover and the disengaging levelwind. Our pledge to the Childre family, and to Lew's loyalists everywhere, is that we'll never forget the importance of innovation. For proof, check out the newest generation of Speed Spool and Speed Spin reels, and Speed Stick rods.
