The reel balances my Northern Pike 10 weight very nicely. Have not been able to fish it yet as the ice is still on. Another high quality Lamson Reel. I have a Konic, Guru, and now this one. Lamson only makes the best, worth every penny!

    Upon the first week of using this reel, and after not having owned a new reel in half a decade, I am really happy with my purchase, I got a killer deal on this reel from S.T.P, which added to my decision as well as after spending some time researching other options, and reaching out to fellow consumers. I am very happy I bought the reel. I got the 3x 8wt reel, loaded it up with 50+ yards of 30 lb. Rio backing, and a full spool of Cortland 9 wt floating line, the reel has filled splendidly. And- the weight up floating line makes for easier casting longer distances. I paired the reel with a TFO 8wt rod, love my new set up. I recommend this reel, as my father always says- "you get what you pay for." Although I've only used it for about a week now I am very happy but have a couple of concerns of which may manifest in the future- the reel track is open, and when sat down in mud or dirt, it accumulates debris and makes for sketchy reeling but is easily resolved with a quick dunk under water., Another concern is the locking mechanism for holding and removing the spool- its just like a groove or clip in, I hope that after a duration of changing out spools n what not it might lose its integrity for keeping the spool attached to frame, but this is merely speculation so I don't know. The construction of the reel as a whole is solid with integrity, doesn't feel fragile and cheap by any means. I like the easily adjustable drag system, easy to change mid-fight. Its not to complicated of a design, limiting the possibility of failure, more mechanics, more places to break, so good job there y'all! Best bang for the buck.

    If you need a light reel to balance todays light 8 weights this reel is very hard to beat and at this price is a steal. I have several Lamson reels including the Velocity 1, 1.5 (nickle and hard) and Litespeed 1.5 and 2. All are great and with Lamson making a slight design change and discontinuing the Velocity (probably was competing with the more expensive Litespeed) now is the time to buy while you still can.
