New Lew's KVD Rods
« on: October 23, 2020, 04:52:36 AM »

I went ahead and picked up one of the new lew's kvd rods.  I got the 7' multipurpose rod rated at 1/4-2oz MH-F.  For $100 I'm pleasantly surprised.  You can throw a 1.5oz glidebait with ease then turn around a toss a 1/4oz swimjig really well.  It loads 80/20 and the tip might be a touch on the low side of fast action.  It's not $500 ultra light but for a 2oz rated rod...no complaints.  It appears his handle length specs and such from his quantum line carried over to Lew's - see below.  The quantum rod in image is a 6'10'' MH and you'll notice the Lew's rod essentially has the same handle length and setup.  The guides are microguides and line flows very smoothly through the guides...smoother than my poison adrena.  The fit and finish of the rod is as good as it gets for a $100 rod...the guide wraps are neat and clean as well.  All the guides on my rod are perfectly straight as well.  Again, I'm very pleased with the versatility of this multipurpose rod.

I was wondering when I'd see something about his new Lew's stuff!! I use a lot of his cranking rods from Quantum and can only imagine the same in-depth detail would carry over. Thanks for the review!

Thanks. I think you found me a rod to replace a cheap-o as a secondary general purpose rod. I've been interested in getting a couple of the smaller/cheaper Savage Gear swimbaits and this rod looks ideal for that, and for any other misc. stuff I want to tie on.

I'll tell you...I'm slinging 1oz i-jacks, i-louds and 6oz magdrafts with ease on it.  then can turn around and tie on a 1/4 to 5/16oz swimjig and sling'em just fine.  I'm pretty happy with this $99 rod.
