So far I really like the new lews. I've been slowly changing out my Revo stx for lews. The tournament MB is a fine reel for the $$ just as smooth as my revo but with easier tuning for all conditions. And Lighter , More compact The four pin centrifugal break plus mag break makes for effortless tuning . You won't be disappointed in this reel.
At first I didn't see the benefits of owning a Baitcaster until my first time out I changed lures from a 3/8ths spinner bait to a weightless fluke (tinkered with the brake settings) and I was able to cast the weightless just as far as the spinner bait! I was blown away that the weight of the lure didn't matter to bomb baits out there! This is where it gets tempting because you constantly want to practice with less brakes on to see how far you can cast.
So far this Lew's has been nice; its also my first Baitcaster and I really like it. The drag is so nice and consistent! I hardly over-run or backlash, and when I do I know its because my brakes are set too light, but more-so I was "snappy" with flicking my wrist on the cast. A firm sweeping cast (not loading up the rod tip with tension) and no snapping the wrist is what this reel likes best.
Reeling-in is quick and sometimes faster than you think. I wouldn't say that's a bad thing but something to pace...
Great reel, for the money I don't think this can be beat. My favorite reel is almost always my Shimano Curado and this bad boy has earned a spot at the top. I also have the LFS Speed Spool (which I also love) but this is worth the extra money!
