Smart design and high performance in Lamson's most affordable reel.
Settling is not in your vocabulary, so go with the Lamson Konic II Fly Reel when you need a lightweight, quality, durable reel that also won't clean out your bank account. The Konic II provides super-smooth performance when you hook a big trout on the Beaverhead or Gunnison.
- Large arbor reel design enables the line to be stored in a shallow layer, provides high retrieve rate, eliminates line coil memory, and erases the risk of tippets breaking due to drag force gain
- Machined materials and pressure-cast ALCS12 aluminum alloy spool and frame round out the Konic II's quality, durable components
- An anodixed finish and a solid polyurethane coating enable the Konic II to resist gouging and abrasion
- Drag system features a pair of precisely matched conical elements which are drawn together with spring tension to produce variable rates of smooth rotational braking
- Centralized mass of the drag elements make the reel more responsive to light drag settings
- Drag system has been completely sealed from moisture, salt, and grit for increased durability and longevity
- Torrington zero-lash roller clutch relies on the locking effect of a number of ramps and rollers to achieve torque transmission
- Zero-lash feature means instant engagement and improves feel and eliminates "spike" that the reel, line, and leader experience when a typical pawl clutch hooks up

Good basic reel
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've got the 1.5 (4wt) version. It's just a basic reel with a drag that works well. Nothing flashy with the anodized finish, but it has held up well.
Update - Now that I've used it more, I've realized the drag is a lot tighter than it should/needs to be. On a 4wt rod, you don't really want much drag and this is close to being overkill.
