Waterworks Lamson Litespeed Series IV Fly Reel

$249.99 - $369.95
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 Litespeed 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 more aggressive. Structural refinements such as the curved arbor have made a light reel even lighter, and this curved arbor 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 oLamson's® newer reels, which do a better job of preventing snags and line damage. Still a close second to a Force SL in trout sizes, the Litespeed is the reliable thoroughbred of the Lamson line.

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.
