Search for "Pixie". I think Daiwa makes it. It's not cheap.

many of your good qaulity low profile, long cast, baitcasters should be able to take care of you. i can toss 1/8 oz. lures with mine with no problem. anything smaller i go to a spinning reel! del

Shimano Fan:

I would use it for ice fishing...w/out all the bells and whistles if they make one same size.

There's a round baitcaster

calcutta 50B

cost ~$190.00

The Chronarch MG is an excellent reel in my opinion. I put those on a couple rods this summer and the lightweight factor is incredible! Also casts like a charm and has suprisingly a lot of power. Porbobaly one of my go-to reels right now...

Go on ebay and find yourself a Garcia 521XL Plus, mine is great, don't use it that much but love it when I do. smile.gif

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
