Waterworks-Lamson Guru II Reels

The super popular Guru reels now have a new look.  Introducing the new Guru Series II reels from Waterworks-Lamson.

The new Guru 2 reels will certainly be every bit as popular as the original Guru reels.  The new version continues to use the reliable Waterworks-Lamson sealed, conical drag system and features a handsome machined aluminum reel and spool design.  The Guru 2 reels, however, now feature a larger spool diameter and slightly narrower spool width.  They also feature a more complex, more modern porting design which has reduced the weight on most sizes.  Combined, the new Guru 2 reels sport a modernized look, lighter weight, and quicker retrieve speed.  All of this for the same, very reasonable price points of the original Guru reels.

All reel capacities on the following chart are based on floating lines and 20 lb. backing except the Guru 4, which is based on 30 lb. backing.

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

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.

  • Format: Large Arbor
  • Materials: Machined 6061 Aluminum, stainless steel
