This is the BEST reel you will find for the money hands down.
I own a three pack and two other liquid reels for me and my wife.
We have been using them now for two years.
Other than a little cleaning from time to time these reels still are as smooth as the day we bought them.
I have had my Liquid 3 pack for about 2 years now and have not used it a great deal but enough to know that it is well worth the price. I Got a size 2 and I don't even see that as an option now but anyway I can use it on a 4 wt and a 7wt just fine. The drag is still very smooth and adjustability is easy. The finish has been scuffed off some of the edges a bit but I don't baby my stuff and for this price your not getting a Lexus paint job but you don't need a great paint job either. It's reliable, affordable, and with the 3 pack you got options for 200 dollars. Will i move up to a reel with more Bling, well probably so as I am starting to go deep into this fly fishing stuff but will more bling work any better? I doubt it really but I do like to look at pretty stuff so yea it's gonna happen eventually. Cant go wrong on this one get it while you can.
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 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.
