In the world of fishing reels, traditionally there is a wide range of trade off’s when it comes to components and features. In general, baitcast reels that are lightweight and build on a low profile are unable to withstand the rigors and abuse that larger, heavier built reels can endure. Line capacity tends to suffer as well, as low profile reels normally have smaller spools which hold limited line yardage. However, all this changed when Lew’s® unveiled the new Super Duty® 300.
Simply put, the search for a heavy duty, high line capacity reel that is also low profile, light and extremely comfortable to fish with is over. The Super Duty 300 was built for anglers that throw big baits for muskies in the north, giant swimbaits for western bass, umbrella rigs for bass on the Tennessee River, fish for Yellowtail off the coast of California or go to head-to-head combat with heavy cover largemouths in Texas. As an addition to the Super Duty family of reels from Lew’s, the 300 is truly the ultimate reel for big bait, heavy line, big fish situations around the country and around the world.
The Super Duty 300 is built on a one-piece aluminum frame and sideplate with a bowed, heavy duty 100mm aluminum reel handle which features Winn® Dri-Tac knobs. This reel is built with stopping power with 24lbs of drag along with a ZRXtra one-way clutch bearing. ZRXtra uses zero reverse with a backup multi-stop gear, which means extra power and backbone. High strength solid brass Speed Gears turn the braid-ready, forged, double anodized, deep capacity spool. 3 drain ports come in handy when used in saltwater.
The Super Duty 300 is offered at an MSRP of $199.99 and will be seen by the public for the first time at the 2018 ICAST Show in Orlando, FL.
