Re: Lamson Litespeed 2??
i own a couple litespeeds (a 1 and a 2), and the are among my favorite reels. they are, in my opinion, very finely us made reels and i have never had an issue with them (or any other lamson reel i own).
i am quite aware of s&s's critique(a good one albeit), but i have to say that, in 2-6 wt. range, i've never had any problems with line build up.
i think lamson has addressed this(alleged) problem with the new speedster and arx series.
