2014 is Litespeed re-loaded. For years an iconic ultra-large arbor reel, Litespeed
has now been refined for even higher retrieve rate, improved ergonomics, easier line
management and less mass. Everything that was achieved in Gen 3 LS has been pushed
farther. Narrower drag geometry has translated into a flatter spool surface for less
knuckle dragging. A more aggressive drag knob has been made ... well, more
aggressive. Structural refinements such as the curved arbor have made a light reel
even lighter, and this curved arbor (which we introduced in 1998) stores backing into
a "diameter well" and keeps "working line" at a maximum radius to optimize everything
we love about large arbor reels.
Please note: backing can add 3-5 days to the shipping estimate.
