The Waterworks-Lamson Speedster has been an icon of reels ever since I started fishing, and it's a real pleasure to have them in our store. It's got a huge diameter for the line weight, but a narrow spool and an inboard mounted handle so you get super high retrieve rates. (Hence the name, "Speedster"). The HD series of this model stands for Heavy Duty. It's the switch or spey version of Speedster that incorporates a full cage design for heartiness and durability in all those adrenaline charging moments of the fight. The design allows control and containment of thin diameter running lines that like to escape through spool or line guard gaps.
MADE IN U.S.A. and assembled in Boise, Idaho.
The size 3 is a 4" diameter, 1.04" in width, weights 5.3 ounces, and is configured to balance on a 6, 7, or 8 weight rod. Line capacity is stated as 7 weight, meaning it will take a 7 weight line with 150 yards of #20 backing. Make sense? Any questions, please contact us and we'll be happy to help.
