Lew’s Unveils their Lightest, Toughest Reel to Date at the 2018 Bassmaster Classic

Some people spend their entire life chasing perfection. With the new Team Lew’s Pro-Ti SLP, they just might have caught it.

The 2018 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Hartwell is hosting the top 52 anglers in the world. The buzz on the water is what areas will produce, what baits will be key and which angler will be able to put it all together for the $300,000 pay day and the lifelong title of Bassmaster Classic Champion. At the Bassmaster Classic Expo however, the buzz revolves around one thing – the new Team Lew’s Pro- Ti SLP baitcast reel.

Combining a one-piece aluminum frame and aluminum side plates with Titanium composition, this reel is the lightest, toughest reel ever produced by the legendary Lew’s brand to date. Hard aluminum alloy Speed Gears that have been cut on the finest Hamai CNC gear hobbing machine provide precision gear mesh that maximizes smoothness and durability. A premium 11 bearing system with double-shielded Stainless Steel ball bearings and a Zero Reverse one-way clutch bearing add to the smoothness and durability of this reel.

Not only is the new Pro-Ti SLP light and tough, but it’s also extremely user friendly to make the angler’s day on the water a success. The proprietary brake shoe geometry of the externally adjustable 6-pin, 27-position QuietCast Adjustable Centrifugal Braking System (ACB) means a quieter and smoother braking system. The exclusive and patented Speed Dial® line indicator means no more forgetting what type of line is spooled on each reel, and the patented Speed Keeper® hook keeper provides a convenient place to keep baits at the ready when not in use.

Lew’s will be unveiling the new Team Lew’s Pro-Ti SLP in Lew’s booth #3212 at the 2018 Bassmater Classic Expo at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, SC. Stop by the booth each day of the event for prizes, giveaway and to get a sneak peek at this new reel which will be available everywhere in Fall 2018.

The new Team Lew’s Pro-Ti SLP is offered in both left and right-handed models with a 7.5:1 gear ratio and will sell at an MSRP of $349.99.
