Glenn May: Hey folks, Glenn May here withBassResource. com. I’m here at the 2015 ICASTShow in the Lew’s booth here with Gary Remensnyder,here to talk about the brand new reel theygot coming out here. When is this gonna beavailable again?Gary Remensnyder: This is available now. Glenn: Now?Gary: Yep. Glenn: Well, tell me about it. Gary: Nothing better than that, right?Glenn: Yeah. Gary: Yeah, this is our new Team Lew’s MagnesiumBaitcast Reel. The cool thing about this isthat it’s 5. 3 ounces, yet you get the advantageof a metal frame. At Lew’s, we’re really tryingto make everything lighter, faster, and strongerbecause that’s what the angler wants thesedays. So this reel really is the essence ofthat. It’s got a magnesium frame, it’s got11 premium sealed bearings, it’s got a carbonfiber handle, and it’s really got some coolfeatures that we’d like to call out. One is this patented hook keeper that’s builtright into the frame that solves a lifelongproblem that we all have, is where you gonnaput your bait when you’re done. It snaps rightback in, up out of the way, and so that’sa really cool patented technology that wedeveloped. Glenn: That is awesome. That is really cool. I’ve never seen that before. Gary: Then the other new technology that wehave, we call our Speed Dial here, this solvesanother problem. As an angler spools up alltheir reels at the beginning of the season,they might put braid on some, fluorocarbonon others, and mono on others, but when theypull those out of the rod locker they mightnot remember exactly what they put on thereel. This Speed Dial here allows them tojust simply dial it in and gives them an indicatorof what they had put on the reel at the beginningof the season. So when they go to pick upthat reel and rod to fish, they can look atthe side and say, “Okay, that’s exactly whatI have on there. ” So more innovation. WithLew’s . . . Glenn: No more tape?Gary: That’s right, no more tape that fallsoff and then you wonder what you’ve got. We’retrying to be innovative at Lew’s, lighter,faster, stronger, but also solve problems,like the hook keeper built in and this lineindicator on the side of the reel. Glenn: Now what is that gonna retail for?Gary: This is gonna retail for $279. Thisis our highest-end reel, but it is a magnesiumframe, 5. 3 ounces, very, very lightweight. . . Glenn: What’s the gear ratio?Gary: We have three different gear ratiosthat this actually comes in. So we’ve gota super high-speed, high-speed, and then acranking speed. And it also comes in left-handas well as right-hand retrieve. Glenn: All right, well you knew my next questionthen. Lot of people like the lefties. So awesome,awesome. Great product. Guys, you gotta checkthis thing out. This is awesome.
