Lamson Guru S Reel – Blaze
The Lamson Guru S is the ideal reel for someone looking for a fully machined aluminum reel while keeping the price affordable. The Guru’s design maximizes structural strength and minimizes weight, making it more durable than any cast aluminum reel, and now with larger line capacity and line pick up speed. A huge benefit to buying within the Lamson family: whether you are purchasing the highest end reel or the lowest end reel, the drag design and components are identical throughout.
The Guru in Blaze is available in 3-6 weight, and is finished with a clear type 2 anodization. This reel is perfect for estuary, saltwater, and freshwater fishing for both salmon and trout.

Totally enlightened. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard for enlightened excellence as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a great price. By increasing the arbor to a larger diameter and making the spool narrower—all the while decreasing its total weight and parts—Guru S takes it to another level. An enhanced spool machining technique—focusing material only where it’s needed—makes this version significantly lighter and higher performing than its predecessor. We’ve opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, and integrated the counterbalance. We even introduced a curved cross-section for structural stability. Taking your game to fishing nirvana, this will be your Guru for life.
