    Product Details
    2014 is Litespeed re-loaded. 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 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 . . . well, more aggressive. Structural refinements such as the curved arbor have made a light reel even lighter, and this curved arbor (which we introduced in 1998) stores backing into a "diameter well” and keeps "working line” at a maximum radius to optimize everything we love about large arbor reels. The spool/stripping arm geometry has been made consistent with reels we developed since the first Litespeed, which does 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. 

    *This reel is not compatible with previous Litespeed models.

    Review (Tell us Why?: I bought a NRX 7/8, this reel, and a line from Gorge sight unseen for a trip to the Tsiu River in AK. We were there for four full days and two half days. In reading this review, bear in mind that this is a grueling trip for any gear. The salmon were larger than average this year, the hens were 10-14 and the bucks 13 to 16. The fish are right out of the ocean, bright and hot, and the river current is strong so the fight is never easy. The river and all surroundings are granitic sand, so it is imp... More details
