Default Lamson Konic ii cheaper?

Curious if anyone knows why the prices have changed?

Lamson Konic used to be $150. Now the Konic ii is ballpark $89-99. Is there any reason for this? Are they still a decent reel?

I need a new reel for my 5wt. My reels are mostly just line holders but I do want one that can handle a surprise Carp. Don't want to buy **** cause my last **** reel has finally **** the bed.

They stopped making it. It's been replaced by the liquid and Remix.

The Lamson Liquid 3 pak looks like a good deal. One reel and 2 spare spools.
That's 3 spools.

Ahhhh Ok that makes sense! I don't quite follow fly fishing gear as close as I should and I was very confused.

That does look like a good deal, as long as the Liquid keeps the same quality that the Konic had (a good bang for the buck) that would allow me to spool up my sink tip line I bought! I will have to go read some reviews.

Has anyone ever purchased anything through StillWaterflyshop.com

They give you free line and free shipping with purchase of a reel. Its not high quality line but dang that sounds like a good deal!

If you look at their website you will see that the dropdown list of free lines is all top sellers.
