The Waterworks-Lamson Litespeed F: the next evolution...What can be said about larger but lighter, lighter but stronger? Of course, it can be done. We’ve done it over and over again, but does there come a time when the bar can’t be raised? No, there are always improvements to be made, new ways of thinking, new materials, and processes to exploit. As we’ve said—the performance benchmark for a fly reel is retrieve rate per ounce. If you haven’t thought about it before, think about it now: there’s no downside to high retrieve rate other than extra weight. As an example, consider the 2021 Gen 6 Litespeed: CNC machined with material distributed artfully along critical load paths, stable and strong, so light you might forget it’s there, but beautiful enough to make you remember it is. The art of the fly reel derives from the science of the fly reel, but at the end of the day both art and science, when held in balance, serve to make us smile.

The LS F drag is based on the conical system found in our other reels with the addition of a click stop drag knob, and a unique spring set that creates a linear progression of torque with very fine resolution at the light end of its range. LS F spool and frame architecture is super-arbor in scale for high retrieve, but spare and open to promote line drying and of course, reduce weight. Manufactured in the U.S.A. and assembled in Boise, Idaho.
