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 year they are introducing 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, spool
and disengaging levelwind. His ground
breaking innovations in design created a focus on technology and performance that
drives the company today.
â€œThere are several important career highlights that a Lew’s
Speed Spool helped me accomplish,” Menendez said. “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. 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.â€
â€œWe are extremely proud to be
working with Mark,” said Lynn Reeves of Lew’s. “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.â€
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.
