Vanquish Pardon the expression, but this fly reel is designed to do one thing: Kick Ass and take names. At diameters of 3.3 inches up to a whopping 4.7 inches, one or more of the six reels in the Vanquish series handles lines as light as #4 and as hefty as #12. Impeccable sealed drag, stronger than strong demands, and salt water invulnerability are among the features will earn this Lamson reel a most-cherished standing in your collection.
Lamson Arx: From the 3.75 inch to the 4.5 inch diameter spools, one of these three Arx models will suit your most demanding Switch and Spey fishing specifications.
Lamson Speedster: You want to talk fast? The Speedster is that and more. Higher than usual spool diameters plus narrow frames yield the fastest retrieve with the most even line wind. Add an awesome drag system, eclectic style, easy to adjust drag nob, and you have a reel capable of keeping up with speedy bonefish, permit, and steelhead. Five models from 3 wt to 10 wt to accommodate any fresh or saltwater adventure.
ULA Force SL: Go here for a full trout range of ultra light fly reels incorporating computer engineered and executed machining to balance frame strength with light weight. One of five models will accommodate lines 4 wt through 8 wt, so you will be able to fish from creek to lake, heck even the Missouri or McKenzie right here near the Caddis Fly Shop. Oops almost forgot to mention the big drag nob to make adjustment a snap and you already know you can depend on s smooth as butter tension adjustment from the ULA Force SL (super Light) reel.
ULA Purist: Simple. Click drag. Ultra light and dependable. If you fish trout or any freshwater species with lines from 2 through #5, one of these two models will be a TON of FUN to fish.
Lamson Force SL represents the world’s lightest full-drag large arbor reel. The conical drag allows the structure of the reel to maximize the large, wide line storage format pioneered by the fine folks at Waterworks Lamson. The Force can pick up line quickly, store it without colliding and provide consistent drag torque, yet still weigh an incredible light 3.3oz or less!
Lamson Litespeed: Not that it was needed, but the dependable Litespeed Lamson has been given the slightest cosmetic make-over; shifting handle outward, improving the drag nob , slimming spool curve, and little machining modifications to increase frame strength but maintain overall mass. Nice way to make a great reel greater. Eight models cover the bases from #1/2 lines to #10/11 lines. Oh my goodness.
Lamson Litespeed IV maintains all of the fundamental designed that made its predecessor famous. Yet slight adjustments have updated the Litespeed to ensure that no other reel in its price range will match its performance. Superior strength and stiffness without the additional weight.
Lamson Velocity: Start by thinking of a super strong Hard Alox finish applied over machined aluminum. Here is another fly reel that Lamson re-engineered to improve on an already tested, approved, and loved product series. More line capacity, faster retrieve, lighter, and yes indeed this new Velocity is stronger than its daddy, if such a thing is possible (it is). This is another of the diverse Lamson models, with 8 reel sizes to accommodate lines as light as #1 to as stout as #10. Machined aluminum, saltwater safe, with stainless components, this will stand up to the meanest Goldfish to the sleekest Tarpon. At between mid-two bills to mid three bills, a great price for a great reel.
Lamson Velocity Nickel: Take everything noted about the Velocity above, switch out the hard Alox finish, and substitute an equally durable, lighter, brighter nickel finish, and presto: you now have the Velocity nickel Series, with a total of nine reel sizes fit for lines #1 to #11. Same reasonable price, same great Lamson performance.
Lamson Speedster HD Fly Reel is a super-high retrieve rate reel which makes it the hotrod reel of our line-up. A compelling reel in the mid-price range. Classic Waterworks Lamson styling and attention to detail, and you have what the name implies: the Speedster!
Lamson Guru: Starting at around two hundred bucks for a FULLY USA MACHINED Lamson fly reel was quite an accomplishment when the Guru was introduced roughly 4 seasons ago. Six models will spool-up with lines from #4 to #1 and a low maintenance drag system just like the fancy fly reels in the line up. Questions about where to Start with Lamson? This is an easy place to start.
Lamson Guru HD: Unlike the standard Guru, the Guru HD has both a complete cage design (like ARX) and type II finish in pewter-tan color. True to Lamson, the Guru’s spoked design maximizes the reel’s strength-to-weight ratio.
Lamson Konic II: Whoa, boys and girls. Upgraded for 2013, and Totally compatible and interchangeable fit with first generation KONIC reels and spools, the Konic II blends a pressure cast aluminum alloy frame, seals it with a poly finish to make it tougher and scratch resistant, adds machined drag and functional components, plus stainless clutch drag systems. This Konic II is offered at barely over one bill to well under two bills, and is a GREAT opportunity to fish a lifetime warranty Lamson quality fly reel.
