I am very familiar with Waterworks-Lamson reels. I have had very good experience with customer service. I took a new Litespeed 4 reel offshore on a recent trip and I was very impressed with how well it balanced with my old Heliply 10 Wt and how the drag performed.

I have been considering their new Cobalt reel because of their "waterproof" claim. This reel will be used in the surf and in the kayak as well as offshore and will go under water. After similar abuse for 3 years, my older Litespeed is in good shape with just an occasional rinse. I finally had to replace the clutch bearing recently but the reel will keep going.

Anyone have first hand experience with the Cobalt? It is a new model so it may not be out there in numbers.
