A Review of the Waterworks Lamson Litespeed Reel

This season Litespeed fly fishing reels will adopt the ergonomic and structural improvements introduced on the 2011 Anniversary Series Litespeed. The spool profile has been flattened slightly and the handle moved outboard to keep knuckles away from moving parts; the drag knob has been redesigned for better grip. As with our other premium reels, pocket milling the spool face and integrating the counterbalance increases strength and stiffness without adding weight. Litespeed reels come in a close second to a corresponding Force reel in terms of retrieve rate and weight, and share our patented maintenance-free super smooth conical drag.
*All spools except the LS1 are compatible with previous model Litespeeds.

Format: Large Arbor
Materials: Machined Aluminum,stainless steel
Finish: Hard Alox
