Waterworks-Lamson Announces 2017 New Product


Waterworks-Lamson, the leader in fly reel design and manufacturing, has focused on bringing the best fly fishing reels to market since 1996. This year we introduce the Litespeed Micra-5.

Since Litespeed’s inception in 1998 the relationship between it and Force reels has been a constant one. Ideas that first take shape in the Force have been put to work in Litespeed’s more conventional structure, which has over time resulted in one of the most successful and influential fly reels of the last two decades.

We’ve learned from history, and we’re repeating it.  The drag housing is made from the same solid bar stock as the frame, there is no separate threaded cassette thereby eliminating weight while increasing stiffness and strength. The integrated housing is much narrower and can support a narrower spool, which results in additional weight reduction and a higher retrieve rate for improved line handling.

Litespeed Micra-5 has enhanced 3D milling not seen on any other model which makes for better material distribution. It sports an improved ergonomic drag knob with zero snag points and a full diameter for better grip.

Lastly, the Litespeed Micra-5 has a spectacular new finish first used on the Force SL 20th Anniversary edition, called Micralox. This exclusive process is found only on Litespeed reels and is 20 times more impervious to corrosion than standard anodize and is as hard as Type III Hard Alox.

Litespeed Micra-5 retails at $349.95 and up available in size 1.5 through 4 and is available in fly shops this November.
