WATERWORKS-LAMSON LIQUID -5+ FLY REEL : 4-6WT
Now available in the new Vapor color and Black! Waterworks-Liquid -5+ reel may just be one of the best price point trout and bass reels on the market. Perfectly weighted to match 4-6 weight rods from entry level to the high end. Utilizing the cost savings of cast aluminum construction and incorporating the same conical drag system found in Lamson’s high end reels the Liquid has the ideal combination of US made quality without the added expense of a fully machined piece of hardware.
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.

Everything about this reel is superb. This year’s model is a gem. The colors are very appealing. I bought the Vapor color. The large arbor and the sealed drag make this a real value. At this price point, it is unmatched.

I've heard nothing but good things about this reel. Finally got around to purchasing one and am very impressed. Smooth and sounds great. Can't go wrong for this price.

This was my first Lamson reel and I can easily say I’m very impressed. High quality for the price. Did not break the bank at all but it will get the job done. I’m using it for trout in the North East. Only thing I’d say is that the finish is not as shiny or glossy as shown in the picture. It’s a much more matte/duller tone. It still looks awesome though. Highly recommend.

This is a great fly reel. Even more, Lamson uses the same sealed drag system in this reel as all their other other high end reels. Smooth pick up, plenty of drag options, and sounds great.

Great reel that balances with my 5wt rod and the large arbor is great for the fish that need to be put on the reel. Can’t beat the performance of the reel for 100 dollars.

I ordered the the -5+ with a 4wt custom outfit after seeing it being recommended in quite a few places. The die casting and finish quality is flawless, the drag is very smooth, and most importantly the sound of this reel is very satisfying. I will probably snag the -9+ with an 8wt soon.

A friend of mine recommended this reel, this is my first Lamson reel and I have to tell you that I am pleasantly surprised how smooth is the drag, it is an excellent reel for the price, I just recommended this reel to a friend and I am looking for another one with a different WT

I've purchased several of these reels for myself & family members & it is an excellent reel for the price . The drag is smooth & concise. Only issue is the reel seat isn't replaceable if broken.

Ordered 3 of these reels with different color backings (4wt, 5wt, 6wt) in silver with right hand retrieve as reels for my left handed guest.
Great value and prefect for guest reels.
