Cabela's Wlx Fly Reel -
The WLx series earns its elite position by exhibiting the same exacting machined tolerances, lightweight design and reliability Lamson has built a reputation on delivering. Clad in a two-toned, nonglare anodized finish, the 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum is fully CNC machined and matched with stainless steel components to blend superior light weight with rugged strength. Solid machined spool further increases overall strength-to-weight ratio. Aggressive large-arbor ratios promote maximum line pickup speed and minimum line coil memory. The proven-reliable sealed drag consists of stacked, smooth-braking Rulon® discs with a two-stage compression drag spring that accommodates a wide range of drag pressures. Ball-bearing drag knob with detents ensures positive, smooth drag selection. Large knurled drag knob for ease of adjustment in wet conditions. Easy tool-less conversion from left- to right-hand retrieve. 25-year limited warranty.

The best fly reel that I own

I don't have a lot of fly fishing outfits but I currently have 3 rod and reel sets and I have to say this is by far my favorite reel. I have a 5wt reel paired to a matching 9' Ross RX rod. This is a really nice combination. I use it to fly fish everything from stream trout to large mouth bass. For the reel itself: good quality build with tight tolerances, smooth drag with no start up, and lots of power with the drag cranked down. I'm confident I can pull in medium to large sized great lakes salmonoid with this reel. Overall I am very pleased with this reel and would not hesitate to buy another.

Light 'n tight

I have used Orvis Odyssey 3&4 reels for years in salt water . Mostly for northern species(striper,blues & Albies). I have also used them for warm water species.
I have also found the Odyssey to be more elusive the last couple years because it has not been made for several years.
This Cabelas WLx(made by Lamson) really impressed me. Less arm fatigue. greats pick up speed & even smooth drag.
I have tried several major Makers & none perform the way I like.
This reel has backbone to spare.
Im sure this will be my go to reel this season. I hope to have a good report after 5 seasons. Stay tuned!

A great reel

I bought this WLx 5.6 for my L-tech 6wt. I have several reels from other manufacturers including two Lamson Konics, but my new favorite is the WLx. It is light weight and makes casting the 9’ L-tech a dream. The drag is one of the smoothest I have seen and the knob is large enough to make fine adjustments even with half frozen fingers. Even better, once it is set it doesn’t drift.

I've had many reels over the years and this is one of my favorites. The reel operates smoothly and is indeed machined quality. The reel "click" on the line pull is quiet. I do not like loud noisy reels and this one is far from it. The spool on a hard wind stays straight and does not torque (twist) like other reels can. Cannot go wrong with this reel.
