Best saltwater reel out there for the money!

I have been pleased with the Lamson liquids reels for a while, and have never seen a need to upgrade. When I saw they offered the liquid in a saltwater version, I had to have it! This liquid max is undoubtedly the best value out there for a saltwater fly reel. The reel is pleasant to cast and not heavy at all. The line pick up is more than adequate The drag is smooth and bullet proof ! It has handled bluefish, speckled trout and redfish with ease. I wouldn’t think twice about using this real for any salt saltwater application. Lamson knocked it out of the park with this offering. Thanks Lamson!

Everything you love about the liquid with a beefed up drag and salt water arbor designs, its a no brainer! Thanks a ton for letting us know how the reel is working out for you.

retrieve conversion question

I have a Liquid Max 8 , i would like to know how i can switch the retrieve from left to right hand wind. thank you - Link to the retrieve change video. We are working on getting these on the site now!

Under capacity

This is a quality real with a bomber drag system, but it doesn’t hold as much backing as advertised. The 10 with a saltwater shooting line held just under 200yds of 30# backing.

Appreciate you letting us know! If you don’t mind send us an email to with the line make/model and backing that you put on there so we can check it out.

Finally found what I've been looking for

Bought the LQ Max 8. Its exactly what I've been wanting for the briny. Fast retrieve large arbour, narrow spool, wicked drag and it looks cool as. All at a very reasonable price. Thank you Lamson.

Thank you! The LQ Max is an awesome new addition to our line up. We appreciate you letting us know what you think.

Good for salt and freshwater

8 balances nicely on my 7 wt velocity rod. Already used it for streamer fishing for big browns on a local river. Drag is easily adjustable and I like the sound both going out and reeling in. I am planning on using this outfit for steelhead in OR and ID, as well as light saltwater in Cancun ( in the lagoon). I think it will work well for baby tarpon and snook. Lamson is my favorite rod and reel company. I wish you would make 2 handed rods and heavier blue water rods.

Thanks for letting us know what you are looking for from us! Ill pass the word along. Hope that trip is fantastic for you and Liquid Max will be ready to dance with those baby tarpon.
