We we found out about the Speed Spin:

Reasons to buy this reel

  • Very affordable spinning reel
  • Smooth operating with solid casting ability
  • Handles all line applications well, including braid
  • Lightweight, graphite housing with reduced flex
  • Sturdy and tight bail
  • Workhorse reel that works comfortable in both saltwater and freshwater
  • Solid and smooth drag

Reasons not to buy this reel

  • Graphite as housing is often said to be not as durable as aluminum - but this comes down to personal preference
  • This reel won't be as smooth as some of Lew's more premium options

Bottom line

The Speed Spin is a great reel for the price you're paying. It has smooth operation, casts great, and is compatible with all line types. The lightweight graphite housing makes for long hours of comfortable angling and the drag is strong enough to handle all kinds of species. Is this reel going to outperform a Stradic? Most certainly not, but if you're on a tight budget - it'll do the job.
