Bass Pro Shops TinyLite Spincast Reel
I purchased two of these reels for my spec poles,they came with 4lb test line already spooled.I am very happy with the performance of the drag system and the smoothness of the reels.I will most likely purchase two more for the other spec rods i have.

Bring Back Last Year's Model!
Last year's model of the Tiny Lite spin cast, the bullet nosed style like a scaled down version of the Wally Marshall UB35, got me hooked on panfishing on ultralight tackle. Its performance was outstanding, its design comfortable and functional. The durability was second to none. It's only fault was a tendancy for big fish, (3+ pound bass & catfish) to strip its small gears. This new model, however, is almost useless. It suffers from a line pick-up problem just like the Shakespere model. I have lost way too many fish winding with no line retreiving. Bring back last year's Tiny Lite!! Please!

This reel is perfect for crappie fishing weather you are slow trolling spider rigs or long-lining out of the back of the boat. I fish at least twice a week and I catch a lot of Florida Slabs. These reel have proven to be dependable and durable.

TinyLite Ultra Light Reel
I have purchased these reels separately and with the combo as well. I have probably 6 of them at least. And I am going to buy a couple more as they get banged around by my grandsons and friends. I loan them out and use them myself. They are practically flawless. I have caught 5+ lb small mouth bass and even salmon and Dolly Varden and 18 inch Grayling up in Alaska. You can't just horse a good sized fish in on an ultra light. but that's part of the fun. The best thing is... you can actually cast all day long and not wear out your wrist and forearm with these. They are so light. I love them.
