WATERWORKS-LAMSON LIQUID -3+ FLY REEL : 2-4WT
Now available in the new Vapor color and Smoke! If you are looking for a new, inexpensive trout fly reel with a supremely smooth drag system and the durability to hold up to the most demanding fish, look no further than the Waterwork-Lamson Liquid -3+ Fly Reel. Designed for fly rods between 2-4wt, the Lamson Liquid -3+ gets the job done and keeps cash in your pocket. A small lightweight design pairs well with today’s graphite rods and the cast aluminum construction keeps the cost down.
The die cast Lamson Liquid Fly Reel focuses on the advantages of a pressure-cast process. Structurally you can do things with casting that you can’t machine, such as create full radiused compound curves, a near zero-radius inside corners, and for precise fit you can go back and machine the cast part in critical areas as needed. By importing the cast frame but assembling the reel with the US made CNC-machined drag system here in Boise, Idaho Lamson is able to maintain the quality expected a Lamson reel while offering a surprising price point.
Lamson Liquid and Remix Spools are interchangeable, allowing anglers a great price on a spool whether you have purchased a Lamson Liquid or a Lamson Remix Fly Reel.
Lamson Liquid Series and Remix Series Fly Reel Color Sleeve: Liquid and Remix reels ship with the standard black anodized cassette. Three color sleeves are offered as an option for consumers to customize their reel. This anodized aluminum sleeve fits over the standard cassette. Colors include: Burnt Orange, Coral Blue, and Salsa Green and retail for $9.95.

I have some Lamson reels on various Liquid and Remix models, this LIQUID reel offers a lot for its value, on top of that its brake system which is the same for all Lamson models, it is an incredibly fantastic reel,
100% recommended, they are excellent.

Honestly, you are getting more reel than you will ever need for trout. I bought the 3 weight version for my new glass rod and could not be happier. I like the quality just as much as my more expensive reels. Will probably end up getting one for a bass rod and a salt rod. The sealed drag is more than enough to handle general salt. I’m a fan.

This is a totally functional reel, but you get what you pay for. At this price range I'd go for a classic President.

This reel makes the perfect pair to my echo carbon xl 4wt. Very light, great drag, and great construction.

As an owner of the prior generation liquid, the new version solves the drag startup intertia issue. It also retains drag settings much better, the prior version would, without warning, become too loose and "free spool".
The spools between the Liquid 1.5 and the new -3+are interchangable, although the new Smoke color doesn't match the prior version's black. However, the different color frame allows easy identification between the new version and othe older one.
I do seem to notice that I'm getting a little line stacking on one side the spool or the other when reeling in a fish after a long drift.
This is a worthwhile upgarde from the prior version, and I would recommend buying one if you're experiencing drag issues with the Liquid.

I bought this reel for my wife to go with her 3wt TFO rod. She wanted a reel that would do three things: look 'classic', be affordable, and perform. She is very happy with it an all fronts. I may buy another for a back up rod and recommend it!

This is a very nice little reel. Smooth drag system. I bought one in an 8 weight last year for saltwater because of the sealed drag system. This 3 weight version seems just as durable and smooth. Thank you Lamson for making a high quality and affordable reel.
