Waterworks Lamson has many years of machining experience, which allows them to use advanced techniques that focus material where strength is needed most, but remove it where the reel can benefit from having an overall lighter weight. The outcome is a spool that is significantly lighter than the previous generation.
The Guru-S features further enlarged porting which not only significantly reduces the weight, but allows better airflow to the backing and line, which aids in drying.
A counterbalance is fully integrated so you get perfectly balanced and smooth rotations, especially when that big brown starts peeling off line and heading downstream.
Like all Lamson reels, the Guru S features a curved cross section (think of how strong an egg is end to end) which makes the overall structure much stronger.
