Lew's broadens offerings including new Wally Marshall
Signature Series Crappie Reels and Rods
Marshall Signature Baitcast reel : One of the most exciting new reels is the
miniature Signature Series baitcaster which I can see being used for a whole lot
more than just Crappie. This smart looking reel features the same basic design
as Lew's other baitcasters just in a mini footprint that is just a tiny blip on
your reel seat.
The Signature Series baitcaster
looks like a mini Speed Spool...
The reel is finished with the Tuxedo Black
finish and features a graphite construction, 2+1 bearings, a forged aluminum
spool, magnetic cast control system, and a forged shallow spool. With a 100yd.
capacity with 10lb. mono your not going to be fishing for stripers with this
reel but it would make a great finesse or panfish reel.
...it looks tiny on the reel seat
and should make an excellent finesse reel
The reel was surprisingly smooth for only have 3
bearings and I really think it would be a kick to land wither a nice Crappie or
Panfish with this tint reel. The reel features a 6.4:1 retrieve which is good
for multi-purpose use and retails for only $49.99.
Lew's also introduced a new lineup
of Signature Series rods
Wally Marshall Signature Rods : Lew's had a
lot of rods this show as well both in their new Tournament SL and Crappie
lineup. We will be taking a look at all of these rods in the future but suffice
to say there are plenty of good rod offerings to pair with all these new reels.
What I found very impressive was the price points of even the higher end
Signature series Lite rods which are designed to pair with the higher end
Crappie reels. These rods feature IM6 graphite, EVA grips, hard aluminum oxide
guides, are all designed with very specific actions for jigging with light line
and small jigs, and only retail for $59.99 each! Whether you are tossing lures
or trolling for slabs Lew's and Wally have it covered.
An example of the spread Wally
would run. Lew's makes it easy to pair the right tackle together at a great
price, so anglers can focus on catching fish and not what the right reel and
rods are for the application
Lew's is doing it right, they continue to give anglers a quality product at a
reasonable price and we are very excited about the new lineup of Crappie reels
and rods. These are not just "get her done" tackle, but really refined offerings
that anglers that are really passionate about pursuing slabs will really enjoy
fishing. Wally has everything broken down to a science and anglers don't need to
think about which rod and reel to combo, there is an entire system in place so
anglers can worry less about what the right combo for their application is and
just focus on fishing.
