Looking for one of the most technical saltwater reels on the market? You’ve found it.
The Lamson Cobalt combines expert engineering with top-notch materials and careful craftsmanship to create a reel that’ll tackle any fishy target. From Tarpon to GT, this reel has a huge max drag and impeccable aesthetics to efficiently manage large saltwater fish. The Cobalt also weaves all these features into a fly reel that’s surprisingly lightweight and incredibly durable. If you’re a serious saltwater angler this reel is for you.
Lamson Engineering - Lamson really outdid themselves with the state-of-the-art design and engineering on the Cobalt. The reel features no counterbalance, a dual-axis machined frame, and subtle asymmetries that allow the reel to perfectly balance without added weight. Throw in a bombproof drag system and an expertly designed reel handle and drag knob and this all-new reel from Lamson tempts saltwater excellence.
Micralox - Lamson’s Micralox finish is as hard as Type III Anodizing and features 20 times the protection against saltwater corrosion. The Micralox finish shields the reel and provides an aesthetically appealing look to the Cobalt. A solid reel with incredible engineering isn’t worth much if it’s not protected by a durable finish, and the Cobalt certainly is.
6061 Aluminum, Titanium, Stainless Steel - The construction of the Cobalt utilizes machined aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel to create a reel with incredible strength and durability. Lamson has found a way to combine these three materials seamlessly to create a reel that features best-in-class construction without adding unnecessary weight.
Type - A sealed carbon conical drag makes the Cobalt an absolute beast in saltwater. The drag system is protected from any water-causing corrosion and is strong enough to stop the largest saltwater foe. A conical system keeps the Cobalt ultra-lightweight without sacrificing performance or strength.
Materials - Self-lubricating O-rings protect the drag system on the Cobalt and a fixed spindle ensures watertight sealing up to 100 feet. The drag system rotates on ABEC 5 ceramic ball bearings and utilizes a high-temp graphite alloy to increase torque. This drag system is one of the best in the business.
Superlarge Arbor - The ‘Super Arbor’ of the Cobalt is ideal for big fish and big water. This arbor size means the Cobalt picks up tons of line at quick rates to help you fight fish more efficiently and increase your chance of putting them in the boat.
Lamson Lifetime Warranty - Lamson’s Lifetime Warranty is valid for any defect in material or workmanship for the original owner of the fly reel. As of October 2019, Lamson charges a $30 reel warranty shipping and handling fee.
