A reel hot rod. A super-high retrieve rate reel, the Speedster S features a narrower spool, inboard mounted handle, and an outer diameter significantly larger than our highest performing reels. The narrow spool prevents line barreling, while the inboard handle and added circumference improve retrieve rate. Rev these features up with our classic Waterworks-Lamson styling and attention to detail—plus our time-tested, maintenance-free drag system—and you have what the name implies: a hot rod of a reel.

The dimensions of structure and function inspire beauty. An enhanced spool machining technique—focusing material only where it’s needed—is the reason why this version is significantly lighter and higher performing than its predecessor.

Available in Midnight and Ember.

** Speedster S Spools also fit Speedster S HD Reels **

Customer service

The thing I love most about this company is their costumer service. I wrote a review of this reel last night and they called me first thing this morning. We're working on a solution and I'm confident they'll make sure this doesn't hairbrush to me again.

Thanks guys

Spool coming loose

I love my setup except that the spool is threaded on the reel where the drag clicker is located. Now, that wouldn't be a problem except that I have my reel setup as left hand retrieve and that caused my spool to unthread while reeling and fall into the water while I was reeling in a fish. It was a mess!! Also, the threads are plastic so if you try to tighten it down so that doesn't happen, the threads slip. I feel that a $450+ reel shouldn't have plastic threaded parts. 🤷‍♂️

Thanks for letting us know. The spool should not thread on, and it sounds like if the retrieve was swapped there might have been a small mix up causing that cap to come loose. Its a super easy fix! We will contact you directly and make sure you are taken care of right away.

Big and beautiful

got the largest size in black for my salmon double handed rod. What a beast of a reel!! perfect weight for my 15 foot rod and balances it perfectly. Loads of line capacity and the perfect drag. The drag is superior on this Lamson and you can stop any salmon with the drag if you need to stop that runaway fish heading out of the pool. I ended up buying another 3 for my sons who decided to swap to lamson after getting the smaller trout versions as gifts. Awesome bit if kit.

Lightweight set ups

I’ve gone to Speedsters exclusively for my 4wt Avantt because the rod is so light it’s the only ‘reel’ fit.
A gorgeous Lightspeed rides on my bonefish 7wt.
Great design and superior quality products are fun to fish!

Speedster S

THis is my fourth Lamson reel. The smoothest drag with zero start up inertia. I plan to buy more of these reels. I had a previous warranty problem with one of the reels and it was resolved from phone call to part replacement within a week. No better warranty available from any company.

Fish saver. Our breakout product in the fly fishing industry, years ago, we thought: “There’s got to be a better way to remove a delicately-tied fly from a hooked fish than the hoisting, clamping, and wrenching process now on display.” So we created a simply innovative tool capable of reducing fish mortality by eliminating netting and handling—then named it after our home-base of Ketchum, Idaho. This technique will preserve protective coatings and eliminate air exposure. The Ketchum Release® tool makes low-mortality release easy, plus allows you to retrieve your fly without damage. It even keeps your hands high and dry. The Ketchum Release® is available in three sizes:  Big Bug for hook sizes 6-10; Standard for sizes 12-16; and Midge for sizes 18-22.
