The fifth generation of legendary Litespeed reel is the Litespeed G5 Series, boasting a higher retrieve rate and narrower spool for improved line handling, an integrated drag cassette for a stiffer frame, and an ergonomic drag knob. A new version of our Hard Alox provides a more beautiful and consistent finish. The Waterworks-Lamson Litespeed G5 Fly Reel is one of the world's lightest and more durable full drag reels ever produced. The new Litespeed G5 reel is a marvel of engineering, continuing the legacy of one of the most popular and influential reels over the past two decades.
Full CNC machined from aircraft 6061 T-6 barstock aluminum alloy to exacting tolerances, the Litespeed frame and spool are beautifully curved, adding structural strength and rigidity. The fully machined, completely sealed conical drag system is buttery smooth and utterly indestructible. Finished with a proprietary Micralox finish, the Litespeed is scratchproof, dent resistant, and corrosion proof, in a beautiful new Hard Alox finish.
In this newest version, you get a higher retrieve rate, for fast line pick up, an improved ergonomic drag knob for better grip, plus a stronger, more structurally-sound frame and narrower spool for improved line handling. The drag housing is also integrated into the frame to save weight and decrease overall width. The Litespeed is an elegant, beautiful reel that is as durable as any reel on the market. You will not find a better designed, or engineered, USA made reel at any price.
