Waterworks Lamson Cobalt Waterproof Saltwater Fly Reel

$679.99 - $799.99

A bolt from the blue, Cobalt is a big game powerhouse of a reel packed with technical breakthroughs that’ll change the game on the flats and into the deep. Cobalt features a dual-axis machined frame that dramatically strengthens the side that bears the most load. The foot is embedded, rather than perched, atop the reel to effectively transmit force and distribute weight. The large arbor spool is also machined with many subtle asymmetries that bring perfect balance without a counterweight.

Certified waterproof to 100 feet by an independent test laboratory, the Cobalt drag is an industry first. In and out of the water, it stands up to the harshest of elements. Custom formulated self-lubricating O-rings protect every point of ingress. A fixed spindle format ensures complete sealing. A supercharged version of our smooth conical drag system rotates on high-precision ABEC 5 ceramic ball bearings - and uses a proprietary high-temperature graphite alloy to create 12+ pounds of line out torque.

The power is in your hands with a set drag system of adjustment that allows you to set a preferred stripping pressure against a stop. Access the full range of torque in half-pound click stop increments through a single rotation of the drag knob, with increments etched into the knob for visual reference. A coating as hard as type III anodize but with 20 times the protection against a saltwater environment, Cobalt is endowed with a stunning, shielding Micralox™ finish - exclusive to Waterworks Lamson® in the fly fishing world.

Waterworks Lamson® is unique among fly fishing companies. It was a passion for product design combined with a love for sport that formed the company. They're not a machine shop selling reels, or a marketing company importing products from overseas. Their focus is exclusively on fly fishing products, their expertise and experience is in product design, and they're committed to the highest standards of domestic manufacturing.

The products uniquely reflect a drive for superior design. For the folks at Waterworks Lamson, this means they must embody true innovation and meaningful improvement. You won’t see them marketing Just Another Fly Reel or a Me-Too accessory. If they can’t do it better, they won’t do it at all.

Making great products also requires a commitment to flawless manufacturing quality. From the Grade 5 titanium, the heat-treated 6020 aluminum alloy and the 544 bearing bronze they use in their reels, to the carbon thermo-composite they mold into the Ketchum Release, each material selection is made without a hint of compromise. The state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and processes they employ result in the highest possible standards of precision, finish and function.
