The Lew’s BB-1 Speed Spool Casting Reel, also called the Lew's Speed Spool model BB1, introduced anglers to several firsts, including the low-profile design, narrow spool, fully disengaging levelwind, and no-knob palming side cover. It became famous for its rugged durability, casting distance and comfort.
