Re: Waterworks-Lamson Speedster Reel
I had hopped to see Speedster at Somerset but regrettably Waterworks did not attend the Show. Clearly though, they have been studying the increasingly popular Hardy Ultralite DD's superior proportions which is still narrower and with a much better drag design (sealed stacked multi-disc vs. two nestled cones with an exposed one-way bearing). I was a little surprised how many of the new large arbor, very lightweight reels I examined had quite a bit of flex in their assembly. Light is good, flex is not.
