I am really fond of these reels. I have the 5+/- and have all 3 loaded with different 5wts. Changing them out is easy. They are durable. They are made in the USA. Are there better, more lightweight reels? Probably. But you can debate drag and feel all day long, in the end, the rod and reels aren't going to land you more fish. These are a great midrange choice. I'm looking forward to purchasing the liquid next and the Guru as well.
I was very impressed with the Litespeed I purchased a year ago, so I found the 3-spool remix pack perfect to handle my 4,5,&6wt rods. Right out of the box I got on a big rainbow with the 4wt and the super smooth drag saved my 5x tippet. Lamson is definitely my first choice.
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!
