Hard Alox

Wide larger arbor reel

Practically new and perfect condition loaded with backing and floating line of unknown condition but looks pretty new also.

Includes Lamson soft neoprene reel pouch

Waterworks Lamson Litespeed 3 Fly Reel. 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 further. Narrower drag geometry has translated into a flatter spool surface for less knuckle dragging. A more aggressive drag **** has been made even 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 our 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.
