I have an Shimano Sedona 500 that seems to work really nice. The 1000 size Shimano spinning reels might be a better choice if you plan on casting alot. The bigger spools do not coil the line as much as the little ones. Or at least the coils are bigger and do not tend to mess your rig up with birdsnests and such after a couple hundred casts with microlite lures.

I would reconmend the Abu Garcia AG1F- Great reel for 30 bucks.

I also have an Cardinal AG-1. The anti-reverse is temperamental, but otherwise it's a decent reel. If you're willing to spend a more the Diawa Tournament SS700 is one of the best there is and could be used on UL to medium action rods. 3 different reel repair folks I've talked to never see the SS Tournament reels. It doesn't have instant anti-reverse, but it's something like a 40 point pickup so it's just about the same.

I'm using a Penn 4200SS on my ultralight rig. Very smooth action, no problems, Made in the USA.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
