Lamson Cobalt Fly Reel
The Lamson Cobalt Fly Fishing Reel is a big game powerhouse that brings many new technological breakthroughs to the fly fishing world.
The Cobalt Reel is designed for the salt. From flats fishing to the deep blue, this reel is designed to battle the largest angling targets in the world and withstand the harsh environments in which they swim.
The Lamson Cobalt is certified waterproof to 100 feet. For this reason and many others, its drag system is an industry first. There are custom formulated self-lubricating O-rings to protect every point of ingress and a fixed spindle ensures complete sealing in all situations, both above and below the water's surface. This drag is a supercharged version of Lamson's extremely popular conical drag system-- it rotated on high-precision ABEC ceramic ball bearings and uses a high temperature graphite alloy to generate 12+ pounds of line out torque. Like we said, its a powerhouse.
This fully adjustable drag puts the power in your hands. Each turn on the drag dial is a half-pound click stop increment with numbers for visual reference. The Cobalt is finished off with a coating as hard as type III anodized aluminum but with 20x the protection in the salt.
The Cobalt's frame is fully machined and dramatically strengthens the side that bears the most load. The design of the foot and frame distribute weight extremely well and the large arbor spool give you incredible retrieval rates.
Material: Machined 6061 Aluminum, Titanium, Stainless Steel.
