Long story but I'll try to keep it short! I ordered a lamson remix 3 pack from bass pro shop, I noticed the product shipped from the manufacturer. When I started seeing my order ship from bass they never provided any sort of tracking or updates and was told to reach out to lamson directly? Doesn't make sense I did order from them I ordered from bass pro. Well I followed the guidance and got into touch with Sean in the customer service and he went above and behind with daily emails of updates and making sure I got my product. I was stressing due to moving homes the same week my product was coming. Luckily I received it the day Sean told me. Fast forward to Saturday, I've got line on my reels and paired with my new redington vice 7wt. These reels are flawless, and a powerhouse at picking up line. Got into a few nice sized trout on streamers and the drag and functionality of these reels are absolutely stunning! I will definitely be making a future purchase for my lighter weight rods. Also huge plus I think for anyone is that these reels fit multiple rods, I have the -7+ and it pairs nicely on my 6wt and as well as my 8 wt. all around I recommend these reels and working with lamson on your next purchase, I have never received the type of service I did from Sean and the gang! THE WHOLE TEAM NEEDS A RAISE!
Thanks again Sean and team, I look forward to many more lamson products in my packs!
In the world often the best of a product segment is thousands of dollars, but in fishing, this is the top of of the top. Artlike beauty, precision craftsmanship, and works flawlessly. This reel makes even not catching fish an enjoyable event, and of course when they begin to strike, well it reels them in perfectly.
It is great to see the best reel maker expand further into the rod space. I was uncertain they would pull it off but this rod with excellent light action is very precise and the Lockdown feature just means you never drop your reel when knee-deep in a river. Bravo now my son wants one as well...
Congratulations, great job !!! received yesterday morning the Litespeed F 3+ Whiskey, a true work of art, it seems tailor-made to be mounted on my SAGE Trout LL, truly a perfect match, I wanted to try it immediately in the water, perhaps with a nice fish attached but, unfortunately, due to rain and swollen and dirty rivers I will have to wait a few days, so when dry the clutch seems very sweet and progressive, great thing when fishing with fine lines, the reel finishes are stellar, what can I say? The top to 360°
PS; I apologize for my bad English
All things considered this is the nicest reel I own now. It works flawlessly (so far) and looks fantastic in whiskey. It is light and the large arbor works well. You will not be let down with one of these.
It's the system! Excellent rod design married to an attractive light weight large arbor reel with a great drag. Can't get any better!! I have fished a 4 wt center axis for over four years. It can handle 7X tippet with finess and a 30" rainbow with authority. Five stars are simply not enough!
5 stars here. I've been using it for a long time and have not been disappointed. I wish the handle was a little longer but that's minor.
I have both a 4wt and 5wt Center Axis and use them regularly on the San Juan River. Both rods are easy to cast, have great weight distribution and have the power to pick up a lot of line for recasts off a boat or wading. Casting with a strike indicator, split shot and a two-nymph combo, even in the wind, is no problem with the 5wt. Probably the most impressive aspect of these rods, is even the 4wt has the power to play bigger fish and steer them away from weeds and swift current. I have a 5wt G-Loomis NRX and a 4wt Orvis Helios and I would compare the Center Axis to both of these rods, and the nice thing is that the Center Axis already has an excellent reel.
Based on looks, build quality, and performance. I give this a solid 5 stars.
I have been fishing this rod/reel for two seasons. I really like the design and function of the combo system. I never have to tighten the reel onto the rod, not drop my reel by accident. I also like the single case which holds both products together for faster set up and really easy to carry on backpacking trips without sticking up to hit trees. I liked it so much bought my wife one this year as she has started to fly fish as well.
Excellent!! They nailed it with this reel.. it was between this and a Nautilus NVG.. had both in hand. The Litespeed M was a clear winner. Took it on a bonefish trip already.. smooth drag, great retrieval rate due to the largest arbor in the game, plenty of backing, fully sealed.. what else do you need? Oh.. good looks.. it’s got those too.
Especially for the price. I have the -7+ on my 8 wt rod and it does absolutely everything I need it to. I also have the guru s on a 5 wt and both work fantastic. I would highly recommend waterworks-lamson reels.
I got the Guru S -5+ for my birthday. This reel has already been on many trips. The reason I love it more than my other reels is the sealed drag. I fished in 20 degree weather, dipped my reel in the river and it didn’t freeze. That was amazing! I was so worried my day of fishing was over.
I have been addicted to fishing since I was about 4. Spinning and casting reels are what I grew up on but since then my experiences have included fly fishing the Rio Grande in CO, spearfishing reefs in Destin FL, noodling mud cats in lake Conroe, and chasing Muskie in northern MN. All that to say I love getting my hands on quality gear that performs to its purpose. This reel surpasses my expectations for the price point. This past Sunday I chased down my first redfish in the Texas grass flats and 6 more to boot. The drag is utterly flawless, the reel sounds outstanding, and the look of it on my diamondback rod is Instagram level pretty. This is one of those pieces that stands above mere functionality and edges into the world of art, which is one of the best reasons to pursue fly fishing, the quality and craftsmanship here captures that essence.
I have used this reel every day for a year. Not once have I had a problem with it ever! I keep it maintained and this is hands down the best bang for your buck and extra spools are damn near dirt cheap!! Which helps because I can get the better line for what I fish for!! I have put this reel through heat, cold, salt water, fresh water, muddy water, the dirtiest water you can fish. And it comes out like a champ. Eventually I would like to MAYBE get a different reel but I’ll be honest… I don’t think I will. I can go for calico bass in the kelp beds and swap spools and go for carp in the lakes in the same day. I can’t possibly think of ever getting a high end reel when I use this against people who use a hatch fanatic and I’ll put fish them any day. Here’s to waterworks for making a kick ass reel!!! Thank you so much for providing this reel to society! I can’t even look at others with this in my hand.
