    The new 2020 Lamson Guru S HD 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+ HD 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 HD stands for "Heavy Duty" and features a fully caged spool to add rigidity and keep line from catching between the frame and spool. The New Lamson Guru S HD 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.

    Well built and loving it!

    Just received this a week or so ago. Paired it with the IMX Pro 9' 8Wt and have to say I love it. I have been using the Lamson Waterworks Liquid 3.5 and liked that also, But this is definitely a step up in comparison. I primarily fish Salmon/Steelhead and have used it for about a week straight and love the quality of this reel. The HD is certainly a step up from the non HD in regard to durability and keeping line from wandering between the spool and frame. In the end I could not be more happy. For the price it is amazing. A friend that I fish with has a reel twice the price and I honestly think this is just as good. In the end it is all about the finesse of fighting and reeling in these big great lakes salmon and chromers. Very happy with this purchase and big thanks to the team here for getting me this fresh off the first production run. Thanks so much!
