Default Re: Lamson Litespeed 2??

You are new so have been spared my wrath on this subject. However, since you have a Hardy U DD with a NARROW aspect ratio, recognize that with the exception of the "Speedster" (semingly influenced by your Hardy), ALL Waterworks/Lamson reels suffer from a dysfunctionaly WIDE (over and inch) and shallow spool ratio. This promotes uneven line retrieval that can only be overcome by carefully paying disproportionate attention to uniform line retrieval . One would really have to like the looks of Lamsons (which do look cool) to put up with this design anomaly.
