Lew's Pro G

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Actually, the Pro G, along with a couple of other reels are listed as clearance reels. The Pro BB-1 is a closeout reel. Not sure what the difference is.

I don't think they are getting rid of the Tournament Pro G. Especially if they plan on replacing it with a $350 reel! I just got one for $105 off eBay with the 25% off coupon. Killer reel for the money. I like the centrifugal brakes better than the SVS Infinity.

How do you get a ebay coupon ? I buy and sell there quite a bit , don't think I've ever seen one.

I sent lew's a email , this was the reply.


The Tournament Pro G is not discontinued at this time, but it is on our TPR (temporary price reduction) program going on right now until April 30th. This is an event we do every spring and usually has a few different models on it.

If you have any other questions let me know, and thanks for choosing Lew’s Fishing!

I would get notifications to my ebay account, and an alert on my phone. (I think the monkey sends them to me :lol: ) The last one was PRETTYDAY of something like that. There is a spot to enter ebay coupon codes in the checkout procedure. They pop up here and there.

There is a current 15% off coupon good thru tomorrow, but only from certain sellers. Code is "PSPRINGBF".
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.
