Lamson has revised the Konic reel and we now have them in stock. This is a great reel for the price. I would say this is the best value for your dollar in terms of trout reels. It is a die cast reel instead of machined, which cuts down on the cost. However it is packed with the same drag system as Lamsons high end reels. This reel comes in at $149 for a size 2 which is for 5 and 6wt rods. Come in the shop and check it out, you will not be disappointed.
