I have a four weight on my 7 ft 6 inch 4 wt sage perfect!
Great set up!
Went in to my local fly shop said I needed a new reel. Owner showed me the new Lamson So after feeling the weight put ok my Sage XP turned into a new rod so recommend
great set up! That reel will be a perfect match.
I upgraded from a competitor's reel to the Litespeed to compliment my 6wt dry fly set up. I love the "weightless" large arbor format. The fast, smooth line retrieval is fantastic. This is my first Waterworks-Lamson reel but it will definitely not be my last. Actually already purchased a Remix for my son's 5 wt. The conversion is happening.
This reel is exceptional in every way... Particularly the cost, which is totally out of line. I own 6 older Litespeed reels and I love them! It breaks my heart the iconic Litespeed was redesigned. The older Litespeeds are in my opinion every bit as good and arguably better than this one is in every way, including visual appeal. If you can find them, older Litespeed reels (which are arguably better in every way) are over a $100 less than this new one is. However, this new Litespeed is lighter than the older Litespeed reels and Lamson claims they're "stronger", though I haven't put them to the test, the new Litespeed certainly doesn't feel as solid as the old ones do. I really like the whiskey color though... It is beautiful and it compliments the wood reel seat on my fly rod nicely. The whiskey color reel will also probably be a collectors item as well which is the only reason I dropped $500+ for this overpriced line holder.
This reel belongs on the water. It makes you want to use it. Great looks and perfect function.
