While a cast aluminum fly reel is often considered a step down from a machined reel, the hybrid Waterworks Lamson® Liquid Fly Reel uses the technique to great advantage. Pressure-casting not only holds costs down, it also makes possible structural enhancements that can’t be achieved by machining, such as fully radiused compound curves and near-zero radius inside corners. To achieve a precise fit and finish, some of the Liquid Fly Reel’s cast parts are CNC-machined in critical areas, including the sealed conical drag system. These reels are assembled in Boise, Idaho, alongside the company’s higher-priced reels.
