Rated 4 out of 5 by CAROLINAFlyGuy Good Reel but won't buy from BPS
I ordered a new rod and reel for a trip. I have the Lamson 2.0 Guru and wanted to get the 1.5 for my smaller rod. I placed the order on here with estimated delivery within 4-6 business days. My rod made it on time but it took three weeks before the reel made it. Not only did the reel show up late but it wasn't a reel but a spool. Evidently I selected the SPOOL instead of the reel when I selected the product. I know I made sure I didn't but oh well. I don't understand why BPS would sell spare spools anyways.

I have this reel on my TFO 7wt. I have only been fly fishing for a few years now and don't have a lot of experience with different equipment. This was a MAJOR upgrade from my first $99 rod/reel combo from Basspro. So far it feels like night and day compared to what I had. I just got a new Sage Z-Axis 9wt and I think I will purchased this reel for that one as well.

I have been looking forward to buying this real for some timed now. I know every detail about the reel and the company's philosaphy so when the Lamson name and Guru logo rubbed of the reel the same day I question the quality of this reel. I look forward to using this reel in the spring hopefully in the Caribean which is what I bought it for. Don't get me wrong this is a great reel Just dont expect to have the same finish as their other upper models. There seems to be a penalty for being on a budget.

unfortionately, i haven't been fishing much but plan to move to Bellingham, WA in Oct to test the reel out real good on great rivers in the fall. The same drag they say as their other more expensive reels and from reading other reveiws of Lamson, I don't think you can go wrong. It does pick up the line very fast and the size 3.5 i'm sure can hold any hard running coho, big bow, or dollie and mid range kings. i'll add more in Oct or Nov when Heaven opens up the floodgates of duck hunting mixed in with steelhead on great Rivers
