Verified Buyer Reviewed by IPManthefisherman from Riverside, Ca on Monday, October 29, 2012I took this reel out to Panguitch Lake, Utah to break it in proper. I tested it on huge Rainbows, monster Cuthroats, and some fat Tiger's (Trout). The Lamson Konic 2 is a true performer... I took and released 25 fish (3-6 lb class) with this reel. I set the drag tension to the tippet strength, and kept it the same position for the entire time I fished. There wasn't so much as a hiccup. I truly enjoy fishing this reel, and won't be looking for a new one for a long time.

- Cons: Scratch Potential
- Pros: Consistent, Durable, Easy Spool Removal, Light Weight, Powerful, Retrieves Line Quickly, Sleek design, Smooth Drag No Jerking, Sturdy
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ken Boz from Pocatello, ID on Monday, October 15, 2012The Lamson Konic 2 reel should last a good long time, even with 160+ fishing days per year. All I need now are a couple of spare spools for my sink-tip streamer shooter line, and my fast sink line.
- Pros: Good drag, Large Arbor Spool, Solid Construction
Verified Buyer Reviewed by SkipperClyde from Missouri on Tuesday, October 9, 2012This Konic reel has the same drag system as their $300+ reels. Can't beat the quality and performance at this price.
