Lexington, S.C. – Together with Wally Marshall, one of fishing’s most popular crappie anglers of all time, Lew’s is pleased to introduce the Wally Marshall “Original” Classic Rod Series.
First class rod engineering is the standout feature of the Wally Marshall Classic rods. The premium IM8 blanks, designed to provide the perfect balance of backbone with a light, fast tip, deliver an astoundingly sensitive rod with plenty of strength to drag big slabs out of the deepest cover. The rods feature stainless steel guides and inserts for maximum reliability, as well as lightweight graphite reel seats for added sensitivity.
Marshall, a lifelong crappie specialist, worked hand-in-hand with Lew’s engineers to design the four rods of the Wally Marshall Classic Series.
Marshall defines the spinning model as the Work Horse of the series. It is available in five Medium Light sizes, ranging from 5’6” to 7’6” in length. “I use the 5’6” to 7’ models for my dock shooting,” the Texas pro said. “I turn to the longer spinning lengths for traditional casting, targeting cover and laydowns.” Crappie can’t fight the Power of The Wally Marshall Classic Series.”
The Wally Marshall Classic Series offers both Light and Medium Light jigging models, available from 7’ to 16’ as well. The 10’ and 11’ models are also available with rear reel seats. “Whether I am jigging, trolling, targeting crappie with long casts, or shooting under docks at close range, the Wally Marshall “Original” Classic Signature Series gives me the rod I need to put slabs in the boat,” Marshall said. They give me plenty of power, but I can still detect the softest strike.”
The spinning, jigging, and rear reel-seated jigging models all come equipped with the popular high density premium cork handles. The fourth rod of the line-up, the trolling model, features an EVA handle and fore grip.
Whatever your favorite crappie fishing technique, and wherever you find the fish, Wally Marshall and Team Lew’s have a Wally Marshall Classic for you.
“The Original” by Wally Marshall will be available at retailers in the fall of 2021.
