Guru S

(3 customer reviews)

Totally enlightened. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard for enlightened excellence as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a great price. By increasing the arbor to a larger diameter and making the spool narrower—all the while decreasing its total weight and parts—Guru S takes it to another level. An enhanced spool machining technique—focusing material only where it’s needed—makes this version significantly lighter and higher performing than its predecessor. We’ve opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, and integrated the counterbalance. We even introduced a curved cross-section for structural stability. Taking your game to fishing nirvana, this will be your Guru for life.

Available in OG, Blaze (-3+ & -5+ Only), or Arctic (-7+ & -9+ Only).

** Guru S Spools also fit Guru S HD Reels **

    Just bought the Guru S -5+ at my local fly shop, very pleased with the craftsmanship of the reel and how light in hand it is, very nice reel and would definitely recommend to anyone. I’ve been fly fishing for 35 years and this is with out a doubt the best reel I’ve ever owned.

If you find yourself out on the water and take some cool pictures with it, we’d love to see them. You can send them to us at [email protected]. Happy casting!

    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.

    Well done Lamson team!

    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.
