    • stable and strong, extremely light
    • drag system creates a linear progression of torque with very fine resolution at the light end of its range

    • Ultra Large Arbor Format
    • Lightest yet largest diameter Litespeed to date

    Lamson ranks as a consistent innovator of fly reels. The Litespeed F (Freshwater) represents the finest in fly reel arcitecture and function. With a light, yet durable frame the drag is always consistent. Our guides have been using Litespeeds since 2000 and each generation represents an improvement, this 2021 version is second to none among our favorites!
