Lamson Litespeed
For years an iconic ultra-large arbor reel, Litespeed has now been refined for even higher retrieve rate, improved ergonomics, easier line management and less mass. Everything that was achieved in Gen 3 LS has been pushed farther. Narrower drag geometry has translated into a flatter spool surface for less knuckle dragging. A more aggressive drag knob has been made . . . well, more aggressive. Structural refinements such as the curved arbor have made a light reel even lighter, and this curved arbor (which we introduced in 1998) stores backing into a "diameter well" and keeps "working line" at a maximum radius to optimize everything we love about large arbor reels.


Most notably, the spool/stripping arm geometry that was introduced on the very earliest Litespeeds has been changed to make it consistent with our newer reels, which do a better job of preventing snags and line damage.

Lamson Guru
The Guru is Lamson's lowest-priced fully machined reel. The signature arm-style element on the frame combines with open spokes to maximize structural strength and minimize weight. As with Lamson's other reels, Guru features true large arbor ratios. Guru is available in 4 weight through 10 weight, and shares identical drag design and components with the more expensive reels. Guru is finished with a clear type 2 anodize.

Lamson Guru HD
This new reel stands for "heavy duty" and this version of Guru, unlike the standard Guru, has both a complete cage design (like ARX) and Type II finish in a pewter-tan colour. Guru HD is a great affordable Saltwater and Spey reel.

Lamson Liquid
When Lamson started creating Liquid, they focused purely on the virtues and advantages a pressure-cast process can offer. Structurally you can do things with casting that you can't machine, such as full radiused compound curves, near zero-radius inside corners, and for precise fit and finish you can go back and machine the cast part in critical areas amplifying the best aspects of the process.

Lamson pushed back on other boundaries as well. How much of a reel at this price can Lamson make in the U.S.? Quite a lot as it turns out, and it's a good mix. These high quality castings are imported, but the components critical to the drag system are CNC-machined in the U.S. Liquid reels are assembled in Boise alongside their highest priced reels. No other reel in this price range can boast this much U.S. content and quality oversight.

Lamson Remix HD
A fusion between the free-form structures of a cast spool and the mechanical integrity of a CNC-machined case, Remix is a hybrid.

The case, CNC-machined in the U.S. from 6061 bar-stock aluminum, delivers maximum structural rigidity and durability all wrapped in a harder, brighter finish. The spool is pressure cast with radiused compound curves, near zero-radius inside corners and a precise fit and finish.

Remix brings together the best of CNC machining and pressure-cast technologies to deliver an unprecedented level of quality. In addition to the US-made case, all critical drag components are CNC-machined in the U.S. And like Liquid, Remix reels are assembled in Boise by Lamson's skilled and experienced team. The result of this Remix? High performance, reliability, and quality assurance.

Lamson Speedster - Hard Alox
The Speedster is a super-high retrieve rate reel with a narrower spool, inboard mounted handle and an outer diameter significantly larger than Lamson's highest performing reels. The narrow spool prevents line barreling, the added circumference and inboard handle improve retrieve rate. Mate these features with a time tested smooth as silk, maintenance free drag system, Classic Waterworks Lamson styling and attention to detail, and you have what the name implies: A Hotrod of a reel.

<u><em>Lamson Speedster HD - Hard Alox</em></u> from W. W. Doak
Lamson Speedster HD - Hard Alox
Speedster HD ("Heavy Duty") follows the lead of the Guru HD reels by incorporating a full-cage design to capture line without failure. The full-cage design is the solution for thin-diameter running lines that are inclined to escape through spool/line-guard gaps.

Lamson ULA Force SL
Force SL (Super Light) reels utilize a comination of subtle space-frame and complex CNC carved cross sections that make the SL rigid, rugged and yet as the name implies, featherweight. The vanquish-style integrated foot/frame raises the reels's center of mass making casting smoother and contributing to both a reduction in weight and greater rigidity. The high-grip drag knob makes fine-tuning the world's smoothes drag system even easier. SL reels are finished in a unique clear Hard Alox.
