    Hey, my little cousin has one of them! It is great for a ultrlight and it is a great price. I have used his before, even in saltwater and it works great. I put 8lb test on it.:)

    I have had a microspin for 3 years now and I love it, with a little care they will last a while, I like to take it with me when I am cattin and throw it out with an aberdeen hook with some corn and small split shot and wait for the carp! catchin' a 4-6lb carp on that is a workout! I spool it with 4lb cajun line and I have the drag set fairly light, makes for an exciting night! I plan on getting my brother-in-law one because he is always takin' mine (he is only 14)

    I got four of them, I use them for Blue Gil and Crappie, They are a lot of fun. I have not had any problem with them and mine are over four years old.

    Small reels are lots of fun.If you get a chance,try it on a light fly rod.I fished some that way and realy loved it.Thanks for sharing.Please let us know how it works out.peewee-williams.

    I hope that you enjoy it as much as I enjoy putting to test my ultralight gear. I picked up a Quantam Microlight 00 combo last year and have caught everything from 4lb channels, shellies up to a pound, pike up to 30" and even bass up to 10lbs!!! All on 4# test...so never say that you're gear is too light, unless it's obvious...like you're targeting 20+lb brutes!

    cant go wrong with it!

    overall i use ultralights alot, biggest fish i caught was a 9 pound brown trout. not to good if there big channels around because last year i herd it go sssssszzzzzzzsssssssszzzz for about 5secs before it went snap! i use 4# most of the time but sometimes steep up to 6 for when using live bait incase i hook a channel or carp. *still doesnt help as i said
