As the fifth generation of the LiteSpeed, Lamson has had plenty of time to tweak everything until the reel has been refined to perfection. The latest improvements include an integrated drag cassette, which results in a stiffer frame, even with all of the weight-reducing porting. The spool has also been narrowed a bit, which makes for a higher line retrieval rate (ideal for when that big Rainbow comes charging back at you) and helps keep line from stacking and provides better line handling.
The ergonomic drag knob has been enlarged to allow for micro-adjustments during the heat of battle.
The Type 2 First Lite Fusion Camo anodized finish will not only provide stealth, so you can drop that dry fly on that Brown's head from a mere rod length away, but it will also stand up to all kinds of abuse on rocks once you get the fish landed.
Like most Waterworks-Lamson reels, this First Lite Fusion Camo edition is CNC machined in the U.S. from 6061 barstock aluminum and assembled in Boise, Idaho.
