Waterworks-Lamson Guru S-Series Reels

Waterworks-Lamson

$259.99 - $299.99

The newest generation of the Waterworks-Lamson Guru S reels are an upgrade to the very popular, dependable reel series.  The Guru S reels continue to use the reliable Waterworks-Lamson sealed, conical drag system and feature a handsome machined aluminum reel and spool design.  The Guru S reels feature a larger spool diameter and slightly narrower spool width than original Guru reels from the past.  Lighter than ever, the new machining reduces weight and has a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Combined, Guru S reels sport a modernized look, lighter weight, and quicker retrieve speed.  All of this for a very reasonable price point for a completely machined and anodized aluminum reel. The new sizing format from Lamson suggests a more wide rage of line sizes used on each reel. Take a look at the chart below to determine what size is best for you. 

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

Totally enlightened. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard for enlightened excellence as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a great price. By increasing the arbor to a larger diameter and making the spool narrower—all the while decreasing its total weight and parts—Guru S takes it to another level. An enhanced spool machining technique—focusing material only where it’s needed—makes this version significantly lighter and higher performing than its predecessor. We’ve opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, and integrated the counterbalance. We even introduced a curved cross-section for structural stability. Taking your game to fishing nirvana, this will be your Guru for life.

Available in OG (olive green) color.
