    The 2020 Lamson Guru S is the third generation of the legendary Guru Series, and is a masterpiece of machining with incredible good looks. The Lamson Guru has always been the benchmark for proven dependability and durable performance. This Lamson Guru S -7+ Fly Reel is the perfect choice for any 6, 7, or 8wt rod, in both fresh and saltwater, chasing everything from smallmouth bass to bonefish. The New Lamson Guru S has been redesigned to eliminate weight where it is not required, while improving upon the bulletproof, tough as nails conical drag system. The Guru S is the most popular, lowest-priced fully machined reel with updated spool geometry for better retrieve rates, open porting to reduce weight and improve line drying and an integrated counter balance for structural stability. Lamson Guru S sets the standard for CNC machined quality and unmatched reliability at a great price. Manufactured in the U.S.A. and assembled in Boise, Idaho.

    We’ve always believed that form shouldn’t just follow function, but be inspired by it, and that good design emanates from a harmonious expression of both. Where fly reels are concerned, the basic parameters - weight, retrieve rate, line storage, drag torque, ergonomics - each must be balanced against the other to build a high-performing reel, and collectively provide the basis for the design.

    By far the most important of these are weight and retrieve rate, because the ratio of the two define what is considered a large arbor reel. Expressed simply, think of these two parameters as retrieve rate per ounce, and hence the Holy Grail of fly reel design is an architecture which yields the lightest structure possible for a given diameter, without sacrificing reliability and durability.

    Enter the completely re-designed Guru S Fly Reels, featuring an enhanced spool machining technique, focusing material only where it's needed, resulting in a significantly lighter and higher performing reel that any of its predecessors. But most importantly, the form and styling clearly flows from the same place; allowing the dimensions of structure and function to inspire beauty and reliability. You will simply not find a higher quality or more beautiful reel in this price range than the new Lamson Guru S Fly Reel.

    Guru S 7+

    As always a well built reel by Lamson. I bought this reel to pair with my T&T Contact II 1093-4 and it balances perfectly with that length and weight rod. Made in USA and a quality reel at a great price.

    This is the lighter reel I ever had. However, I feels really solid and durable. I bought it because of the very good reviews that this model has. In addition, Lamson use to have good reputation in durability and performance. I look forward to use it and see how if works in real action! Also the arctic model looks great! And it matches great with my helios 3d in balance.

    My son selected this reel for his birthday. He has other Lamson reels, and finds them to be of great quality at this affordable price. The reelflyrod guys helped select the line and backing and were a great help. They are wonderful to work with!.......Since then my son has caught many reds and snook on this reel. We highly recommend.

    Purchased two olive green. Mounted them to a Scott Radian 5 wt, and Thomas & Tomas Avantt 4 wt. great looks, fit & finish. Balanced well with the rods. Great drag system. For the money one of the best reels I’ve purchased. No issues recommending this product or company.

    New Lamson GURU S - Olive Green
    Tom K. (Georgia) | October 31st, 2019
    After reading the reviews and watching how this reel is made (youtube) I went with the new GURU S for 2020. ReelFlyRod did all of my rigging, consulted with me several times over the phone and made me feel that I was making the right decision for the backing and line I chose. They also made it look great with alternating green colors. I matched this to my TFO BVK which is also in a dark green. The reel is very high quality and has a great drag system which in totally enclosed so no dirt or grim can enter the gears. Many new improvements for 2020. This is an excellent reel for the money from a very high quality company - you can't go wrong with a Lamson! Would highly recommend. ReelFlyRod is now my go to shop for all my gear!! Their reward system helped me buy my fishpond vest at 50% off! It's no wonder they got rewards for one of the best websites for quality products and customer service. Stick with these guys, they are exceptional and carry a great variety of top quality products for all budgets.
