    Waterworks-Lamson’s Force SL II -5+ reel is the ultralight weight reel of choice for bass and trout rods. Maintaining a high retrieve rate and incorporating Lamson’s conical drag system the Force SL II -5+ reel does everything a more traditional reel can do but does so at less than 3.5 ounces. Keeping the weight down is imperative for balance and the Force SL II -5+ reel can be matched with any 4-6 weight rod for a perfect combination.


    The Force SL reel is a perfect match to any higher end light fly rod on the market whether you are trout, smallmouth, or even light saltwater fishing. Lamson Force SL II is the lightest full drag true large arbor reel in the world. It offers an unprecedented combination of structural integrity, super large arbor performance and unmatched physical lightness.


    The Force SL Series II breaks its own record as the lightest machined reel on the market. This evolution includes an even larger arbor to increase line retrieval and decrease weight, an enhanced CNC machined structural and a more fluid, refined style. Since coming onto the scene in 1997, the Force reels have pursued the Holy Grail of fly reel performance: delivering the highest possible ratio of retrieve rate to reel weight. To this end, while other super arbor reels add weight in order to gain speed, the Force line of reels maintain their featherweight specification by being pure muscle and bone.

    Superlight and Durable
    Craig (Olympia, WA) | May 15th, 2021
    I just bought my second Lamson Force -5+ reel, one I fish on a Sage X 6wt and one on a Loomis NRX+ 6wt. The ultralight reels balance perfectly with both rods, which have a very light swing weight. I fish these reels hard and very, very frequently , exclusively in the Puget Sound. I never break down my rods. I just fish, rinse, fish, rinse, repeat, repeat, repeat. They have held up beautifully under this type of use. They are a joy for the cutthroat I am targeting, and the drag is smooth and strong for those occasions when I happen into a larger coho. The weight is frankly hard to believe. There is just so little there...but they are strong and durable and my springing for a second is testament to how happy I have been with the reel. They are pricey, but a lifetime investment you would not regret.
