Great for the price

I'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.
