The Lamson Konic fly reel was manufactured by machining and dies casting the parts; that attributes greatly to the quality of the reel. It demonstrates nearly the same performance of high-priced reels, all at a fraction of the price.
The Lamson Konic fly reel comes with the no-maintenance Waterworks, a completely sealed conical drag that has all machined components. It's the very same drag system that Lamson fly reels' have, which cost upwards of $400. Dissimilar from the usual drag systems, that employ two flat surfaces to be used for braking control, it uses two conical elements that are coupled together for an exact fit. The system entirely seals the drag to prevent moisture, grit, and salt from ruining your day. As you adjust the drag, spring tension forces the two elements in concert. This makes for variable grades of ultra-smooth braking. The bulk of the elements are centered, so the reel responds well to your settings for the drag. The radius for the surfaces that contact is a lot less than the traditional disk-shape's drag. This eliminates the torque that you have at the start.
The frame and spool were pressure cast then machine-finished. The coating that was applied repels dings, but does scratch. The drag is fantastic on any setting, and smoother than a baby's bottom. It is so great that the completely sealed conical drag system is included, it has optimal performance. Truly, this is a reel that is worth the buck, if you don't mind that it looks a bit used.
