Lew’s Fishing must be doing something right, since this is the fourth year in a row it’s won the ICAST award for best rod-and-reel combo. The 10-bearing Speed Spool reel boasts a multi-setting brake and cast-control system, as well as grippy Winn Dri-Tac knobs. As for the seven-foot, medium-heavy, one-piece IM8 graphite rod, it features a split-grip Dri-Tac handle and innovative Airwave rod guides. In black with orange highlights, this is one gorgeous outfit.
