Waterworks Lamson Litespeed Micra-5 Spools



Waterworks Lamson Litespeed Micra 5 Spools

We’ve learned from history, and we’re repeating it with the Generation 5 Litespeed.  In 2016 we introduced design changes to the Force SL that resulted in engineering alchemy: A fly reel structure that is larger in diameter, stronger and yet lighter.

      1. By integrating the drag housing into the frame, the housing itself becomes a structural member, increasing stiffness and strength.
      2. Eliminating the cassette and the threaded overlaps reduces material and thus weight.
      3. The integrated housing is much narrower and the frame /drag unit much lighter.
      4. A narrower drag can support a narrower spool, which results in additional weight reduction.
      5. Hence the new Litespeed: Higher retrieve rate, narrower spool for improved line handling, stiffer frame. Specific to Litespeed you’ll find enhanced 3D milling for better material distribution and an improved ergonomic drag knob for better grip.Lastly, the Gen 5 Litespeed comes clad in a revolutionary new coating called Micralox. New to fly fishing and only available on Waterworks-Lamson fly reels, Micralox is the ultimate in corrosion resistance.
