The Lews American Hero Baitcasting Combos come equipped with a Lew's 5 premium double shielded stainless ball bearing Speed Spool baitcast reel with Magnetic Control System cast control. The reels have a 1 piece lightweight graphite composite frame and sideplates. The spools are machine forged aluminum and anodized blue. Their main gear and crankshaft are high-strength solid brass. They have a palming sideplate that can be quickly released and removed for easy spool access. A durable Rulon drag system provides up to 10 pounds of drag power. The rods in the combos are premium 1 piece IM6 graphite blanks equipped with stainless steel guide and inserts. The reel seat is skeletal and has a cushioned hood. These rods also feature EVA split grip handles that are lightweight and slip resistant. Lew's patented "No Foul" hook keeper never interferes with casts and retrieves.

Beautiful! was on backorder for two weeks received it on the third week. Haven't had a chance to use it but really excited. Came in excellent condition the tube it came in was bent and ripped halfway around. But the rod survived the trip. As for the bait caster no odd sounds everything's moves smooth. Silverwood lake here I come!!

You just cant beat the price for the value!
I have used this combo on three tournaments and it has preformed flawlessly. Just be sure to adjust the clutch prior to bombing those long casts. The reel came set up completely free spooling and caused a birds nest on the first cast. One adjustment and no more problems!

Best value for money I have found!
This combo is excellent as an all around rod and reel for bass for the weekend angler. I could imagine some pros using this as well. I would and have recommended this outfit to other anglers.

Smooth and affordable, helps Vets
American Hero is a great combo for the price. I compared to Abu Garcia and BPS for similar models but once I discovered that proceeds from the AH line go to Vet programs my mind was easily made. Very pleased with how it casts, reels and hauls in the 4-6 lb bass. TackleDirect had the best price on the internet and Craig from customer service was awesome helping me resolve a minor damage issue.

How does this cast soft jerk bait like the salty super fluke? Can you feel the softer hits of bass?
1 Answers
The Lews AH1H70MH American Hero Baitcast Combo is sensitive enough to detect bites using the super fluke.

I’m thinking about buying this combo for throwing jigs and weighted Texas rigs for largemouth bass. Would you say this rod is solid enough and has the backbone to throw these types of lures comfortably?
1 Answers
The American Hero Baitcast rod would ave enough backbone for the application your wanting to us e the rod for. This setup would be great throwing jigs and using the Teas rig method.
