Lamson Litespeed Micra-5 Reel 1.5 Model BLOW-OUT Savings! Litespeed Micra-5 Reel, Here's a reel that will last longer than most thanks to it's simplicity and structural design. Here in the fly shop we rarely see a Lamson reel EVER come back for warranty. That is because they are nearly bulletproof. The kicker for this particular Lamson reel series is that looks just as great as it performs.
Lamson learned from history, and has repeated it with the Generation 5 Litespeed. In 2016, they introduced design changes to the Force SL that resulted in engineering alchemy: A fly reel structure that is larger in diameter, stronger and yet lighter.
- By integrating the drag housing into the frame, the housing itself becomes a structural member, increasing stiffness and strength.
- Eliminating the cassette and the threaded overlaps reduces material and thus weight.
- The integrated housing is much narrower and the frame /drag unit much lighter.
- A narrower drag can support a narrower spool, which results in additional weight reduction.
But what if the reel we’re talking about is already the lightest full drag reel in the world? Perhaps then, as a designer, you think about weight savings as money in the bank, and maybe you decide to spend it elsewhere – by increasing the overall diameter of the reel and trading weight savings into improved retrieve rate.
Lastly, the Gen 5 Litespeed comes clad in a revolutionary new coating called Micralox. New to fly fishing and only available on Waterworks-Lamson fly reels, Micralox is the ultimate in corrosion resistance.
