These Lamson reels have blemishes that make them seconds; they are in perfectly working condition but have otherwise suffered aesthetic damage. The reel you purchase may or may not be the reel depicted in the photograph.
As the name implies, we created the Vanquish reel with just one thing in mind – total victory. And as the “form follows function” zealots we are, it all starts with the world’s smoothest, and now much larger and more powerful drag system. Delivering twice the torque of our previous salt water design, the Waterworks conical drag generates no stick-slip even at the line-snapping rates required by blue water anglers.
An integrated foot/frame which, while stronger than a traditional fastened-on foot, also raises the center of mass of the reel, improving casting ease and accuracy
Machined-from-solid, modular stainless stripping arm on V12 and V10
Our proprietary “Hard Alox” finish
Large, ergonomic, self lubricating no-slip handle
Tandem roller clutch transmits higher torque and provides redundancy
Fully sealed, zero maintenance drag components
V12 and V10 spools are offered in both a standard ported closed-faced version and a lighter, open-spoke design
