Bassmaster Elite Series angler Mark Menendez announces that he has joined Team Lew’s and will be fishing with the all new line up of Lew’s reels for the upcoming season.
Through the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, owning a Lew’s reel was the goal of every serious angler. Lew’s Speed Spool reels were simply the best engineered, most advanced fishing reels obtainable. This tradition lives on today with the introduction of six new reel series from Lew’s.
It was the late Lew Childre who started many of today’s popular baitcast features, such as the low-profile design, a palming side cover and disengaging levelwind. His ground breaking innovations in design created a focus on technology and performance that drives the company today.
“There are several important career highlights that a Lew’s Speed Spool helped me accomplish. Qualifying for the Bassmaster BP Top 100’s, catching the largest bass in the first 31 years of BASS, making my first Bassmaster Classic, and earning my first Bassmaster win were all earned with a Lew’s Speed Spool on my rod,” stated Menendez. “I am so proud and honored to be part of the Lew’s team and associated with the tradition of the Lew’s name. I would love to know how many miles of line I have cast with a Lew’s.”
Lynn Reeves of Lew’s said, “We are extremely proud to be working with Mark. He brings an outstanding knowledge of product and history to the Lew’s family. He has been fishing at the highest level of competitive angling for 20 years. We are confident that the new line up of Lew’s Speed Spool and Speed Spin reels will give him the extra edge.”
Lew’s offers reels, rods, and fishing accessories. The Lew’s offices are located at 2333 E. Bennett, Springfield, Mo 65804. The Lew’s line is available at most fishing tackles retailers.
