Lamson Litespeed Micra 5


Built Tough


A legend continually in the making, the Litespeed is one of the most popular and influential fly reels of the last two decades.

One of the world’s lightest disk drag reels the Litespeed Micra 5 is engineering alchemy. In this new version you get a few features that have been improved over the models of the past; a higher retrieve rate, an improved ergonomic drag knob for better grip, plus a stronger, more structurally-sound frame and narrower spool for improved line handling.

The drag housing is also integrated into the frame to save weight and decrease the reel’s overall width and part count.

The Litespeed Micra 5 is coated in a new corrosion-resistant shield called Micralox‚ exclusive to Waterworks-Lamson in the fly-fishing realm, it’s beyond amazing.
