We believe that no finer spinning reel has ever been built for the fine art of finesse fishing. The featherweight, inflexible nature of the CMC (Computer Molded Carbon) frame transmits every vibration. These reels are ideal for braided microlines and the intimate contact fishing that truly puts you in touch with the fish—you’ll feel every tick and bump, and missed hits will become a thing of the past. So if that fat bronzeback even thinks about eating your drop shot worm, or if a 30" walleye picks up your rig and runs toward you with it, you’ll know. And it’s not limited to lightweight lures; it’s got enough middleweight punch to handle structure-oriented largemouth on mid-sized lures as well. The reel has 7 ball bearings and a powerlock instant anti reverse bearing. It also features a ported spool face; super-smooth seven-part drag stack with carbon and stainless steel washers; Powerlock instant anti-reverse; and hardened brass and zinc alloy gearing. One thing’s for sure: when you lock this reel onto your favorite rod, you’ll never want to take it off again.
Machined Aluminum and Carbon Pipe Handle:
A synthesis of aluminum and carbon gives super cranking power and the lowest possible mass.Forged, Ported Spool:
Cold-forged and double anodized-aluminum spool with chamfered ports to reduce weight and increase efficiency.
Carbon/Stainless Drag Stack:
Powerful seven washer drag stack alternates carbon and stainless steel for outstanding fish-stopping power and long life.Computer Molded Carbon (CMC) Frame:
With our revolutionary new CMC technology, the frame is precisely formed from a reinforced graphite composite for exceptionally low weight and extreme strength.

The performance of this reel is comparable to the Shimano Stradics that I own. Nice and smooth retrieval and seems well ballanced. The thing about this I like more than the Stradic.....the price

Bought this under a good friends recommendation! Should have never strayed from my favorite brand - "Mitchell" The carbonlite is light, but the one I bought had alot of gear lash. It eventually BROKE! I began to notice a hard spot in the retrieve than it started to stick really bad. When I took it apart a couple of pieces fell out along with the drag spring. My experience may be one in four thousand, but I will never stray from "Mitchell" again. I bought an "Avocet IV Gold 2000" to replace the carbonlite and am Happy, Happy, Happy!
Remember - "Mitchell" created the spinning reel!!!
