Lamson Speedster and Speedster HD Fly Reels

The Speedster is a super-high retrieve rate reel with a narrower spool, inboard mounted handle and an outer diameter significantly larger than our highest performing reels. The narrow spool prevents line barreling, the added circumference and inboard handle improve retrieve rate. Mate these features with the time tested smooth as silk, maintenance free drag system, Classic Waterworks Lamson styling and attention to detail.

Lamson Speedster HD Reel for Trout Spey Setups

This is a fabulous reel for Trout Spey setups. The big arbor handles thick spey heads and the full frame design of the "HD" contains thin mono running lines very effectively.

Size Recommendations for Trout Spey Reels:

  • 2-3 wt. Trout Spey Rods 10'6" - 11' - Speedster HD #3
  • 4-7 wt. Trout Spey Rods 11' - 12'6" - Speedster HD #3.5

Hatch Premium Backing is Recommended for Saltwater Reels and Big Fish

Lamson Speedster HD Fly Reel

Speedster HD (“Heavy Duty”) follows the lead of our Arx and Guru HD reels by incorporating a full-cage design to capture line without failure. The full-cage design is the solution for thin-diameter running lines that are inclined to escape through spool/line-guard gaps. *HD spools are not compatible with standard Speedster.The drag system in all Lamson fly reels consists of a pair of precisely matched conical elements which are drawn together with spring tension to produce variable rates of smooth rotational braking. By re-configuring the surface area of traditional disks into a pair of matching conical elements we were able to seal the drag completely from moisture, salt and grit. And since the mass of the drag elements is centralized, the spool's rotating mass is much lower which makes the reel more responsive to light drag settings. Because the average radius of the contact surface is much smaller (being conical rather than disk-shaped), start-up torque is too low to measure. Most premium reels rely on a pawl type clutch mechanism.

These are often vulnerable to stress related failure, contamination and wear. All of our reels employ a Torrington zero-lash roller clutch. This mechanism relies on the locking effect of a number of ramps and rollers to achieve torque transmission. There are no "teeth" or "steps" to break off or wear out. And the zero-lash feature means instant engagement. This improves feel and eliminates "spike" that the reel, line and leader experience when a typical pawl clutch hooks up.
