Default Re: Ross Evolution LT vs Lamson Litespeed

I'm betting weight isn't a major concern. I fish my Colorado 2 on my 490-3 LL and it balances perfectly IMO.

I think the reels are pretty equal, except that the Litespeed has the Type 3 anodization which is harder. The Lamson drag is more proven by time, but the drag on my Evo LT landed the porker redfish you see below, so I fully trust it.

I'd say pick the one that balances your rod better, and that might be the #3 size.

Side note- if the ideal balance seems to be halfway between the #2 and #3 Litespeed, that means the #2 Velocity is likely perfect, as its right in between them weight wise.
