Lew’s Report

Lew's Custom Lite SS Baitcaster

Three years ago, Lew’s stepped up the baitcast game with the introduction of the legendary brand’s lightest reel, the Custom Lite. Lew’s now introduces the Custom Lite SS, a baitcaster specifically built to excel with extremely light finesse baits.

Engineered to cast light baits further with accuracy and ease, the newest Custom Lite features an ultra-shallow 30mm spool design that requires less inertia to spin when casting light weights, helping you put finesse baits exactly where you want them in any condition. Anglers who rely on small crankbaits, finesse swimbaits and weightless soft plastics will find it fits well for those as well. The reel allows you to maintain the power and control of a baitcasting reel with smaller baits to attract the fish that won't eat a heavy, bulky bait

Like the original Custom Lite, the new Shallow Spool features an aluminum alloy Speed Gears®, the P2 Super Pinion® for consistent durability and power, C45 Carbon side plates and 11 stainless steel double shielded ball bearings.

The innovative Speed Knot™ allows for quick line tying and hides the knot at the base of the spool for smooth line delivery.

The new Custom Lite Shallow Spool suggested retail is $299.99 and available at most sporting good dealers.
