Lamson Vanquish 7.8LT Fly Reel Review

Posted on March 6, 2013 by Ben F There have been 0 comments

"It looks like a spaceship!" That was what one of our customers said when he first laid eyes on the Lamson Vanquish fly reel. He wasn't wrong. It's futuristic and fun.  As the flagship model of the Waterworks-Lamson line - and one of our favorite trout reels - we were excited to see how its drag would perform.


Unfortunately, we weren't able to test the Vanquish 8, which has a much more significant drag than the designed-for-freshwater 7.8LT, so we're going to leave this one undecided for this year.  We've posted the drag graph below for your benefit, but won't be doing an in-depth review... yet.
