Need ideas please.

Recommended Posts

I can't believe I'm asking this question but I would like some input on a new reel choice.  I recently bought a Loomis GLX MBR842 & paired it with one of my Chronarch 50mg's and #10 mono.  This combo is super sweet and unbelievably light. BUT, I think I may want a different reel on it and put the 50mg back on the MBR843.

I have only one reel that is not a Shimano and that reel is a ,SHHHHH, Daiwa Sol which I use with small/med crankbaits.

My question is this this.

Are there any Shimanos out there that are 6 ounces and under but are as low profile as the Sol?  I believe the Sol would fit the 842 rod better than the 50mg but the Sol is almost 1.5 ounces heavier than the MG and my goal is to keep this set-up very light. And use #10 mono.

If no Shimano's fit this criteria than how about ,SHHHHHHHH, Diawa's under 6 ounces.  Japan models are ok too.  

Thanks for any and all input.

Thank you Burley. I'm checking my cash flow as I type this.

Is this reels profile smaller than the 50mg?

I don't really know as the Aldebaran just hit the market.  That said, it looks a great deal like the Curado/Citica E series and probably has the same frame size.

Here's a comparison photo I found.
