I got a great price on this reel with the DealFlyer discount. This is a US made, fully machined reel from a company with a great reputation. The drag is smooth and strong. I teamed this reel with a 9 weight Ross RX rod I also purchased from STP. This will be my "go to" outfit for inshore fishing. ... Read More
Verified Buyer Reviewed by GrayDrake from Kalamazoo, MI on Sunday, October 2, 2016I've always been a Ross Reel guy but decided to give this one a try because of the low cost and high reviews. The minute I pulled it out of the box I was impressed. You can usually tell a lot about a reels quality just by the way it feels in hand. This reel feels solid and well made. Drag feels smooth and adjustments are smooth and easy to make. I will definitely give Lamson/waterworks reels serious consideration in the future. Can't wait to give it a real Michigan winter steelhead workout this season!
Reviewed by Sgt. Steelhead from Buffalo, NY on Thursday, September 22, 2016You definitely get your money's worth with this reel. Though the drag can be a bit difficult to adjust in the middle of a fight, the rest of its qualities outweigh this minor inconvenience.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by iamamultitasker from CA on Monday, August 29, 2016I've got 3 Lamson reels and each one has been great so far. This Guru 3.5 is the heaviest of the lot, but that may not be a bad thing. The weight on the Guru 3.5 is about average or slightly heavier than many other machined reels in this class which makes it good for balancing rods that have a higher swing weight. It also feels more rugged vs. other Lamsons that seem light as air.
Most importantly, this reel has the standard Lamson conical sealed drag which makes it almost foolproof. We'll see if it holds up in salt water.
