Light-year. The distance traveled by light in a single year; the time it takes for design to evolve to a next step.
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.

LSF – The LSF is the freshwater version of the new Litespeed. The chassis 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. LSF 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.

Available in Whiskey and Fuego.

This reel belongs on the water. It makes you want to use it. Great looks and perfect function.

Great Reel

If you're weighing your 3wt reel before you fish with it, then it's highly likely that you need to spend more time actually fishing.

Wrong weight

Functional it´s the best Lamson Reel I got in my hands till now and the best pick in the creek rod class for me.
The 3+ is offered as the benchmark for retrieve rate per ounce with a weight of 3,10oz.
But in reality it´s 3,41oz. Strange how this can happend on one of the main selling Points of this reel !?
I contact the support, but no change on the webside.
Leaves me back with a very mixed feel on this reel.

Exceptional reel

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

Reel nice

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.
