Built for the angler whose aggressive style demands the fastest and strongest baitcast reel on a tried-and-true performance platform, Lew’s is pleased to announce the HyperSpeed LFS.
Lew’s has teamed with seasoned tournament pro Greg Hackney to lay the groundwork for an astounding new level of high-velocity performance with the HyperSpeed. and once again, Hackney and Lew’s have delivered. “No question about it, when I am pulling a bait through thick brush or heavy grass, I need a reel that can horse fish out of that cover with a crank of the handle,” proclaimed the Louisiana pro. “In high-stakes tournament angling, every minute counts. But when you have a game-winning fish on in the thickest cover, every millisecond, and every crank of handle counts.”
In a moment like this, success depends on a strong, fast ratio and a reel that can back it up. This is the moment when the HyperSpeed shines.
The HyperSpeed is equipped with a screaming-fast 9.5:1 ratio that yields a phenomenal recovery of 40 inches of line for every rotation of the handle. This is not only a heavy cover reel; its gear ratio also makes it an exceptional tool in any scenario the angler is moving a bait on slack line. Hackney explains: “Any time I keep slack in the line during my retrieve, like when I am bouncing a jig across the bottom, or twitching a topwater, I need to be able to tighten up that slack quick for a solid hookset. The quick recovery is really all about line management and cast efficiency, and there is none quicker than the HyperSpeed,” Offers Hackney. “This thing reels like you got some place to be.”
The reel’s Zero Reverse one-way clutch ensures that there is no “give back” of line during a crank, a critical design for a more solid hookset and consistent retrieve. The HyperSpeed also features a premium 10-bearing system, housed in a one-piece aluminum frame for exceptional retrieval smoothness and lightweight handling. Additionally, the 6-pin QuietCast® externally Adjustable Centrifugal Brake (ACB) system offers anglers quick and effortless cast control for balancing between multiple styles of fishing and casting throughout the day.
When speed and performance are key, grab the HyperSpeed.
