View Full Version : Lew's baitcast reel for sale or trade

03-02-2014, 11:10 AM
I have a new Lew's reel that I won in a tournament last spring and have only used it a dozen times or so. I love the reel but do not like the gear ratio. It is a 5.4:1 and it doesn't fit my style of fishing. It is in perfect condition so if you're interested let me know and we'll work something out.

Is it one of the 12 models listed on their site or is it so new it doesn't have a model #?

I might be interested. Could you tell us the model Lew's reel it is and whether is left handed or right handed? Thanks!

Lol sorry guys, it was a quick post before I left the house earlier. It is a right hand retrieve and it's the speed spool model #SS1S. I can send pictures if needed. Thanks

All is true but the one I have is a 5.4:1 gear ratio as I posted in the original posting. I prefer at least a 6.3:1 or higher and that's why I'm looking to sell or trade it. The model# is SS1S which is the 5.4:1 gear.
If I had the SS1-SH like Agelessone posted, I would NOT be selling it Lol.

Angelesssone, He said it was the SS1S. Not the SS1-SH. That would make it the 5:4:1

So what are you asking Hick? I could use another deep cranking reel in that gear ratio.
