Waterworks-Lamson Guru HD II Reels

Waterworks-Lamson

 

Waterworks-Lamson Guru HD II fly reels are the "Heavy Duty" version of the popular Guru reels.  The Guru HD version features a full cage design for extra stability when fighting big fish on heavy drags.  The Guru HD also offers some advantages for Spey anglers fishing thin, monofilament running lines since the full cage design minimizes the thin running line jumping between the spool and frame.

Here is what Waterworks-Lamson has to say about their Guru HD Series II reels:

The HD in this reel stands for “Heavy Duty” and this version of Guru, unlike the standard Guru, has both a complete cage design (like the Arx) and type II finish in a pewter-tan color.  Guru HD is a great affordable Saltwater and/or Spey reel. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard as a rugged, fully USA-machined ultra-reliable reel at a great price. This season we’ve updated Guru’s spool geometry for enhanced retrieve rates, opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, integrated the counterbalance and introduced a curved cross section arbor for structural stability.

Guru continues to prove that the quest for “enlightenment” can be anything but boring.
