Puns aside this is a great reel. Reel has a wider spool than most but picks up line well and has a solid drag. Use this for a 7wt and is nice and light. Can't go wrong.

    It looked new when I opened the box but the drag does not work. There is no drag at all. All the parts seem to be there but after talking to Lamson i am sending it back.

    Great reels. Reliable, well made, and Sierra Trading Post deals make it even better!

    Beautiful reel, this is my third fly reel, first Lamson one, and the level of craftsmanship is uncanny at this price. It feels very solid. However, after loading my line and backing and taking the reel on its' first outing, the drag suddenly stopped working. At all drag settings on the dial, there is no drag resistance. Also, the spool kind of lugs around the center shaft like a bad hub on a bike wheel. I'm sure the two issues are related. My last reel was an Okuma SLV and abused the thing, it never had issues like this, especially right out of the box! Hoping this is just a manufacturing fluke and will get it exchanged for a working model.

    Lamson reels have always been great! The Guru 3 is perfect for river smallies around the Midwest.

About Lamson

When Lamson designers and engineers set about to revolutionize fly fishing reels, they threw out the existing assumptions and started from scratch. Beginning with a blank piece of paper, they re-designed, re-thought, and re-tooled fly fishing reels to achieve a crucial balance and optimal performance. Lighter materials like titanium and polymers took the place of steel, wood and cork. Simplified designs meant fewer components, lighter weight and amazing longevity. Along the way, Lamson shaved so much weight from the reel that larger, better-retrieving arbors were incorporated into the design. They topped off their list of impressive advancements with a high performance, conical polymer alloy drag system. The result? Precisely machined fly fishing reels constructed from space age materials that are so light, they seem to defy gravity.
