The Lamson Litespeed M8 Riveria Fly Reel - The ultimate saltwater fly reel for the New Zealand flats and harbours. Whether you're targeting Snapper and Kahawai on the flats or Kingfish around the marker poles, this reel has plenty of grunt to handle them. Due to its durable lightweight design and silky smooth drag, this the 'reel' winner!
The highly anticipated Lamson Litespeed Saltwater fly reel is designed to be the lightest reel with the faster retrieval rate, while incorporating a pure waterproof bearing design and durable CNC frame and spool. The Litespeed M8 is equipped with a hybrid drag system whilst sharing some elements of the Cobalt drag like; fixed spindle, large heat wicking conical surfaces, and click stop drag knob. The Litespeed M8 incorporates close tolerance composite bearings, and comes equipped with the same linear spring set found on Litespeed F series reels. Like the Lamson Cobalt reel, it holds an IPX8 waterproof rating to 100 ft. The Litespeed M frames and spools share the same open structure as the Litespeed F series that gives greater stiffness and stability. The performance benchmark for a fly reel is retrieve rate per ounce. Manufactured in the U.S.A. and assembled in Boise, Idaho.
