thanks guys
I have several Waterworks- Lamson reels all with their alox coating and IMHO they are well built, tough and attractive. My reels have a soft outgoing click compared to my Hardy click reels (which I like). I now have a Litespeed 1.5, Speedster 1.5, and Velocity 2.0 to match several rods in the 3 wt. to 4 weight class. Love them. I have seen my Litespeed dropped 4 feet onto a hard floor without any sign of damage. At some point they will all show some signs of wear as they are used. I call that a patina.
