Waterworks-Lamson brought the best of die-cast and machined reel tech to the Lamson Liquid (a.k.a. “liquid courage”) fly fishing reel. The Liquid amplifies the best aspects of both worlds to make a low-cost but extremely capable reel. Full-radius compound curves. Near zero-radius inside corners. For a perfect fit and finish, they go back and machine the cast part in key areas. This adds to the benefits of the pressure-casting process.
