Has there been a baitcast reel made smaller than the Shimano Curado 50?

I think Ryobi made one a decade or so ago.  They do not import to the US anymore.  Quantum had the microlite back in the early 90's that could cast 1/8oz but I think size wise it was bigger than the 50.  I think the Abu 1500c is the same size as the 50.

I saw on another thread a daiwa presso (thanks Gone_Phishin I will borrow your link ;) )


It is pretty small.

I have this crappie bait casting reel on the smallest bait casting rod I have ever seen. I also have the mini spinning outfit to go with the smallest bait caster too.
I have no clue how to use the bait caster other than flipping or pitching it. It's like the older antique baitcasters but smaller in modern plastics.
The fish are out there just waiting for you to throw the right lure along with the correct presentation so why are you still here?
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....
