Lew’s Custom Pro SLP
This is the Best of icast 2016 winner for freshwater reels. The SLP stands for Super Low Profile as it is Lew’s lowest profile design by about 10%. It’s composed of a lightweight aluminum frame with carbon sideplates and features Lew’s externally adjustable Speedcast® Adjustable Centrifugal Breaking (ACB) system. The Speed Keeper hook keeper is a nifty little place to attach your hook off the rod when you’re not actively fishing. There are four sizes, weighing in at a paltry 5.8 oz, having gear ratios of 6.8 to 7.5:1 and retrieval rates of 27 to 33”.
