Lamson Guru Fly Reels
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.

expected better from Water Works
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.

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.
