Great little reel. No problems. The extra spool is always an advantage! For the money, it was worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by azjohhny Excellent light reel
This reel is easy to use, very light, making it easy to cast. The only con is the design looks little cheap to me, but that's no big deal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by usmcjg Decent Except for Bail
I bought this little reel for the size and weight to put on my 5'6" UL Cameron trout rod. With the exception of the bail it works pretty well and it is very small and very light weight. That said, the bail has not closed properly since day one. Occasionally it will work as it should, but I usually wind up closing the bail by hand for fear of breaking something. When I get a chance I will exchange it for another one. But if the next one isn't any better than this one, I will look elsewhere for my next ultralight spinning reel. I just wish Daiwa still made the UL7, or better yet an updated version of it, and I wouldn't have to bother looking for anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kmw54 Great reel
Have fished with this all summer and just don't know what else to say about it. Very smooth, quiet and a great drag. Have one spool with 4# Floroclear and the other with 10# Power Pro. This reel is so nice I may have to find a better rod!

Dear Thetruth, you can use a 6lb. wt... Just kidding. depending upon what your fishing for type of water ( streams, rivers, lakes; ) type of bait or lure. Sometimes i use a 1/32 oz. jighead for crappie or up to 1/2 oz. for catfish. I use 6lb. test alot. Also consider rod action and whats recomended by manufacture on the rod....
