On Clearance! The Litespeed IV is Lamson's premiere large arbor machined reel for fresh and saltwater fishing. See below for more information on reel specifications.
Changed for 2017 and 2016 models are available at Great Savings! Series IV is Litespeed re-loaded. For years an iconic ultra-large arbor reel, Litespeed has now been refined for even higher retrieve rate, improved ergonomics, easier line management and less mass. Everything that was achieved in Gen 3 LS has been pushed farther. Narrower drag geometry has translated into a flatter spool surface for less knuckle dragging. A more aggressive drag knob has been made… well, more aggressive. Structural refinements such as the curved arbor have made a light reel even lighter, and this curved arbor (which Lamson introduced in 1998) stores backing into a “diameter well” and keeps “working line” at a maximum radius to optimize everything we love about large arbor reels.
Most notably, the spool/stripping arm geometry that was introduced on the very earliest Litespeeds has been changed to make it consistent with our newer reels, which do a better job of preventing snags and line damage. The Litespeed is the reliable thoroughbred of the Waterworks-Lamson line. Please specify model. Limited quantities.
