Lamson is a reel company we know and love here at Trident. New for 2019, Lamson has remade a few of the reels we’ve been using for years. One such reel, the Lamson Guru, has been a staple in their lineup. The new Guru S is a remake of this reel; lighter, narrower, increased arbor size, dynamic materials, the new Guru S has it all. This reel is perfect for the angler who needs a lightweight reel that’ll stand the test of time.
Totally Enlightened - Lamson has remade their Guru reel to be lighter and more practical. A larger arbor diameter and a narrower spool make the Guru S more user-friendly. Lamson’s enhanced spool machining technique keeps the reel lightweight but increases durability and performance. Open porting also adds to the reel’s decrease in weight and Lamson engineering has allowed the counterbalance to be built into the spool. Overall, this reel is a huge improvement on Lamson’s already-great Guru fly reel.
Type II Anodize - The finish on the Guru S is made to protect the reel when it’s dropped or dinged. Type II anodizing is strong and durable for increased reel life and worry-free angling. Many major manufacturers use this finishing because of its lightweight makeup and rigid protection from the elements.
Machined 6061 Aluminum - The Guru S is built with 6061 Aluminum which has a few benefits. 6061 is both abrasion-resistant and corrosion-resistant. If you happen to drop or ding your reel, 6061 resists corrosion even when abraded. This type of aluminum is commonly used in aircraft and boat/automotive construction and contributes to the Guru’s lightweight, durable construction. The reel also includes parts that are Stainless Steel.
Type - The Guru S, like many other Lamson reels, comes with a sealed Conical Drag System. A Conical Drag is lightweight and extremely strong. Lamson is known for this system and they’ve perfected it over many years of research, development, and design.
Materials - The Conical Drag of the Guru S is made with a proprietary Teflon/Delrin Alloy that’s blitzing strong and seriously lightweight. Lamson has perfected the balance of weight vs. strength in this reel and this proprietary Alloy is a major reason why.
Large Arbor - The large arbor of the Guru S increases line pickup and helps anglers fight the largest fish in both saltwater and freshwater scenarios. Most contemporary fly reels are made with a large arbor design to allow anglers to pick up as much line as possible with as little work as possible.
Waterworks-Lamson Lifetime Warranty - Lamson’s Lifetime Warranty is valid for any defect in material or workmanship for the original owner of the fly reel. As of October 2019, Lamson charges a $30 reel warranty shipping and handling fee.
