    No one else?

    I echo what others have said: the Lamson Konic is the best inexpensive fly reel on the market.

    great reel for the price. I was able to get a 1.5 for 89.95 and free shipping. Over all it's is good quality. The biggest disappointment for me was it is made overseas and not in the USA.

    I fished these reels for 4 years, the only problem has been the frame icing up in the winter. Sounds like you had bad luck, these are great reels!

    Only time I've had that happen is when the day is over and you're storing your leader into the reel.

    Aside from that, I haven't experienced any problems with the first generation of Konics. The gap between the spool and the frame is a bit larger than normal, but during normal operation, I haven't seen an instance where that would become a problem.

    Sounds good. I need an 8wt reel to match my Sage 8 wt for steelhead.

    I got rid of my Litespeed 2 trout reels and bought konic 2's instead. I pocketed about $200 on the exchange.
    After 4 years I think I made a great decision. The konics work fine for my trout fishing and I have landed a number of 3 to 6# Cuts, Brooks, and Rainbows
    on 5 and 6X tippets and the drag has worked flawlessly. I have dropped my konics (in fact I dropped one of mine tonight while putting it away after fishing) and there has never been the slightest damage.
    The only negative I can add is that the polyurethane gray finish has worn off where the line rubs when being pulled off the reel. Not a biggy to my way of thinking; it just adds character!

    Hi I got a Lamson (i) 1.5 from my brother at xmas (thanks bro). Reel looks nice but not used it yet. My question is do the mark ii spools fit the mark i's.

    Also am i right in thinkink the konic size 4 would be a tad small for a 10wt spey line
