Designed To Flow
Free-flowing design comes down to physics. At Waterworks-Lamson, we make fly gear that’s fluid and dynamic. Making you a real force of nature.
I’ve already commented on this reel it’s a 9.8 out of 10, no other reel comes close to what this reel can do for its weight. I’ve Subtracted 0.2 to off the perfect 10, to gain the 0.2 to be a perfect score this reel should have a integrated foot into the reel it being a flag ship reel.
The other improvement an aluminium handle, they feel so much nicer to the touch than a plastic handle,
As some other post have mentioned a size 6 would be nice
After my first two outings with my Velocity 5 wt it became my go-to all purpose rod for the Owyhee and South Fork of the Boise rivers. It has the muscle to cast streamers, heavily weighted nymphs and large foam flys with confidence while still enabling me to pivot to small dries when a hatch starts. In short, a versatile “do it all rod” that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their current rod or those looking to add a versatile rod to their quiver that will be able to cover a broad range of potential situations while on your favorite river.
I purchased a Purist 9' 4 wt a little while back and finally had a chance to use it recently. I was on a little creek at snow line that was crystal clear and spooky. One strike and your out type of fishishing.
This rod is awesome, pin point accuracy, a joy to cast! I have been fishing with a fly rod in my hands for 61 years. Although, lots of worm dipping as a kid! There are several quality fly rods in my closet and now they will remain there.
Many thanks to Waterworks Lamson for building a quality product.
This reel is awesome, being such a light reel for saltwater I like the idea that it could also be used for heaver
Salmon or trophy trout if waterworks would also offer it in the 8 in a slate or similar colour it could be a reel
for fresh and salt
Purchased my first liquid in 3+ earlier this year. Put it on a St Croix pro graphite 4/5 7 1/2 and caught my first ever rainbow on 4/29. Perfect balance, drag and ease of use. I have 2 other liquids and can't wait to use them too. Great reel for the money, which was well spent. I'm sold and you should be too!! Planning on changing all my reels to Lamson!!! Thanks Lamson for being such a great company.
I own the Litespeed, Speedster, Gurus, Remix, and Liquids, with extra spools. For me they are 100% dependable, rock solid, easy to use and the customer service is excellent if you ever need it. I needed a new handle on one reel one time and had it it two days. I work in a sporting goods store and sell more than a dozen brands of reels. I recommend Lamson to every customer, for every flyfishing application. Thanks very much LAMSON.
I like my size 8 a LOT. I will surely get a size 6 (4.25 in +) if it is available.
Great equipment, and great customer service!!
I ordered a fly reel assuming it was a reel and and extra spools like the advertisement showed.
When I received the reel it did not come with the extra spools as advertised.
I got onto customer service and discussed what happened with Sean, he eventually tracked down the ad and decided he would honor it and ship me the 2 extra spools!! Totally made my day!!! Thanks Lamson, and thanks Sean!!
I could buy anything. I didn't want something to obsess over. I've had that. I'm finding that I'm falling in love with this reel. It's probably the best reel out there, hands down. It's for fishing. Don't have to worry about damaging it if I fall. Don't worry about where I place it so I won't scratch it. I won't add to other's positive comments on how well it works. It just does a great job.
If you're here looking for a really great reel for actual usage. You found it.
I have the 8 on my Sector 9wt and love it. On my Sector 6wt I have the Lightspeed F7. Please can we have a 4 inch size 6 for those saltwater 6 and 7wt fly rods
This is the best Waterworks/Lamson reel i've ever owned
Ordered the Coral Blue colored sleeve accessory for my new Lamson Liquid (color: Smoke).
Shipped immediately and arrived two days earlier than expected. Easy to install and looks absolutely awesome.
Thanks again to Waterworks-Lamson for quality products and excellent service.
I saw this 'review' after recent purchase of Liquid 3-pack.
This response is for the 3 star review because it is ridiculous. Not light in weight? Free spooling fly reel? Cutting the drag clicker? Good grief, go buy a budget Walmart reel.
Also, never oil the Lamson seal ring or shaft.
Lamson is one of the finest fly reels made, 5 stars all around, light in weight, performance is unmatched, do not change a thing.
I've fished with Sage, Redignton, and Cabelas reels. I got my first Lamson as part of a second hand package I bought off a friend. At this point, I own 3 liquids, and 1 remix. The drag is bulletproof. The build is good for the price, tolerances are obviously better on the gurus, speedsters, etc... For the price though? Favorite reel.
I live in the Colorado high country. I guide some and fish a lot…
I fell in love with the looks of this reel. The light weight and retrieval speed were perfect. I got the midnight to put on my 4 wt. green stick. It is superb on the water when a feisty trout puts you to the test. It is the perfect partner when you are matching moves with a fish that does not want to see that net…As I said, perfect!
I’ve had my eye on Lamson reels for years, and my new LAMSON LIQUID -5+ FLY REEL is everything I hoped it would be. It’s a cliche to say you get a lot for your money from a product, but it’s absolutely true with this reel. Great priced reel with many quality features, including light weight quality materials, well made in America product, large arbor, sealed bearings, solid highly adjustable drag. Easy to change from left to right retrieve. Beautiful! Love it! Plan to purchase several more in the next few years.
