Re: Lamson Litespeed - what year is this reel?
I'd say it has too much going against it for you to feel comfortable using it. I've had reels thatI was afraid to use, and sold them....usually at a loss. Two were Abel TR's in perfect shape, and I was afraid they'd get scratched. They were both new, and bought for a great price, but I was always afraid
they would get a nick. After twirling them in the living room for a month or two, I sold them both.
