The design of the liquid is based around the virtues of pressure cast aluminum molding. Structurally you can do things with casting that you can’t machine, such as full radiused compound curves, near zero-radius inside corners, and for precise fit and finish you can go back and machine the cast part in critical areas amplifying the best aspects of the process.
Lamson Waterwoorks had other objectives too. How much of a reel at this price can be made in the U.S.? Quite a lot as it turns out, and it’s a good mix. These high quality castings are imported, but the components critical to the drag system are CNC-machined here in the U.S. Liquid reels are assembled in Boise alongside our highest priced reels. No other $100 reel can boast this much U.S. content and quality oversight.
One area that was not changed is the sealed drag system. This simple and inovative design is fundamentally the same on Lamson Waterworks reels, regardless of price.
