Default Re: Lamson Litespeed 2??

Wasn't the Litespeed designed to be a trout reel? And when fishing for trout doesn't one want to protect one's tippet? Well, Lamson's wide spool does that better than a narrow spool.

Torque. You want it to remain as constant as possible when playing a fish on fine tippet.

Or am I mistaken?

I think Lamson made a choice, rather than a mistake as it is often described on this forum, to design their reels with a wide spool. The design process is a give and take, and while I think it is important that people be made aware of a design's flaws, let's not ignore the design's advantages.

For bonefishing, I can see why one might avoid a Litespeed, but I don't think anyone is bonefishing with a Litespeed 2.
