Here's mine, Daiwa SS Tournament 700.  She comes in at 7oz and holds 140yd of 0.20mm (4lb).  You get a lot of reel for $100, super heavy duty, excellent drag, and a worm drive system that lays the line in a crisscross pattern to facilitate longer casts.  My only complaint is that it has a small reel foot and doesn't sit right on some rods.  My solution is to put some heatshrink tubing on either side of the reel foot, then it works just fine.  Mine goes backpacking the UP of Michigan with me in my pursuit of brook trout.

Daiwa SS700 is pretty great if you're looking for a super small but still quite capable spinner. May not be the smallest but it's the smallest with worm oscillation, and it's a modern reel with a mechanical anti reverse. Casts like you wouldn't believe. I love mine.

Looks like someone else was saying the same thing as i wrote my post.

Don from western Australia asked if I would post his smaller reels, and yes, Don, I am always more than happy to post photos.

This from Don:

Hi Wayne, I see you posted a shimano reel on the general spinning reels section, started by Wailua boy,  
I have an intrepid regent reel, made by KP Morritts, of England, Pant No768024-798026,
it has a ratio of 2.6 to 1, not sure how much line it holds, the second pic of several small reels around it,
if you wish to post both these pictures,
I can add the details of the other reel,
hope you two are keeping well, & staying covid free,
cheers Don.





Take it away Don!!!!

Once again, thanks Wayne, the intrepid regent, when I opened it, inside the cover plate it had in thick black texture, 66 or 99, I would say 1966, maybe Chris, Titlebasher maybe able to add more on it, It is 4am in the morning, I am sitting here in my undies, we had rain recently, so it is quite cool, so I will comment on the other reels later , thanks, cheers Don.

my smallest spinner is  the Magnumlite GT-X 2100, wondering if any of you guys have any experience with this little and tiny reel.
it has many features for its small package, as the "quick" trigger, rear drag BUT it has another lever that says "fighting drag", looks like it add micro adjustments on the selected drag by the normal rear drive knob, almost as a leverdrag lever

I dont know if I will ever use it on the saltwater, no rivers, chanels or any other kind of freshwater to fish it

line  4/ 165yds

I've probably got somewhere in the vicinity of 100 or so that have been, at one time or another, considered ultra-lights.

Here's a few:








I don't have any micros so probably the smallest are the Cargem 33 Mignon, Alcedo Micron, Orvis 50A, Dam Quick 1001, Spin Mitey, ABU Garcia Cardinal 52 & Cardinal 152.

But these are my favorites:






I fish Cardinal 3s & C3s, skirted & non-skirted spool models.

Pulled these out of the bins this morning —

There is (1) sleeper in here which may or may not be considered an ultralight reel.  It is somewhat rare — and goes on every Eastern Sierra Trout trip — when you never know if you might catch a 1 pounder or a 20 pounder.  It will fish 3 times its intended and engineered target range — capably, with no drama.

Load up any of these with 4 lb. test — coupled with a decent quality glass UL rod — and the combo will be unbeatable.

Eastern Sierra opens up last Saturday in April.  http://kenssport.com/

Best, Fred

Yep, you nailed it, Tom —

DAM Quick 1202

12 ounces — aluminum body — high speed 1:5 — fold down bail — spring loaded fold down crank handle — oversized large disc drag brakes — machined phosphor cut bronze main with SS worm/pinion — oversized bearing — left or right handed retrieve — and a graphite Petticoat spool that will not allow line behind the spool — and the spool arbor is fully adjustable for proper line lay.  The feel and balance are perfect for me.

Although I really enjoy the smaller reels also —

There are (3) series of DAM reels with skirted spools — that are by many seasoned anglers and reel mechanics — considered to be the best DAM ever manufactured in Germany before starting Asian production and partnerships.

These consist of (15 reels) — 1000, 1400, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 1001, 1401, 2001, 3001, 4001, & the 5001.

The ‘02 series only had (3) models — the smallest is the 1202, then the 2002, & 3002.

When a 1000/1001 size is a little too light — and the larger reels are not what I want to use — this little powerhouse fills the niche perfectly.

I hope to use each of these reels this year.

Best, Fred

as I understand, among the boxy little Shimano 500's (not later sleek 500/750)
AXUL is the 1-BB budget version (bearings drop right in);
Spirex is 90's "deluxe" -- 3-BB, 2 metal spools, STUPID HANDLE;
MARK ULS looks like 80's "deluxe" w/ best bones -- 2-BB, solid SiC line roller, better handle (?)

is your handle collar metal?  

is bushing under handle (RD-0795 "Bushing B") nylon or brass/bronze?
does it go into frame/sideplate from outside, like later models?
could you please show handle removed & frame/sideplate openings
 
WB{Here is a pic. This reel has become my gf’s go to reel because it’s so tiny and comfortable and she’s usually targets smaller fish and catches and releases everything. I’m thinking she hasn’t been rinsing off reel, the occasional time she goes fishing. It’s time time to service this bad boy.
thanks}


P.S., you should get the metal spool for better heat dissipation -- HUGE deal in that size, IMO


I may have a couple of the Spirex 500's stashed.  Solid little Shimano, but no IAR.

FYI:  I have Spirex 500F & got 500FA w/ snapped foot for spares -- GEARS DON'T MATCH!!!
still worth $15 for all that's compatible, but not the brilliant purchase I thought it was
