What makes you such an expert on reels that I should place any credence in your opinion?
Seriously. I thought I was the only Lews fancier. I still have the Lews that I bought in 1972 (there about) when I was surf casting big shell for trout and smacks. Haven't used it in many years, but I do clean and oil it occasionally.
Somewhere along the line, I moved strictly to spinning and fly. I do spin fish when it's impossible to fly fish. Too many advantages to my preferred fishing methods for using spin gear, as opposed to level wind. And, I do like Penn reels due to their being, in most instances, bullet proof.
