Litespeed Micra 5 Fly Fishing Reel
The Lamson Litespeed has been one of the most successful and influential fly reels of the last two decades The Generation 5 Litespeed Micra introduces a revolutionary new fly reel structure that is larger in diameter, stronger and yet lighter.
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.
Hence the new Litespeed: Higher retrieve rate, narrower spool for improved line handling, stiffer frame. Specific to Litespeed you’ll find enhanced 3D milling for better material distribution and an improved ergonomic drag knob for better grip.
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. Welcome to the new Lamson Litespeed Micra 5
