Lewes reels

Which Lewes baitcaster are guys using for inshore? Seems theres the $200 inshore version  but theres also an inshore version thats $129. Even the LFS series are rated for inshore at $79. One model has drain plugs for rinsing but doesnt that also allow saltwater in?

    I use the Mach II SLP  and the Speed Spool LFS. Both have been great, and I would buy them again

    I just went through this and i decided to go ahead and splurge on the Custom inshore for 199.00.   I noticed that the Speed Spool LFS did not have sealed bearings.    I think academy on the southside has an Speed Spool in stock.   I love lews.

    I didn't know that about the LFS, Mine says Inshore on the side. Maybe I need to change the bearings.
