Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Great reel. But I was asking for the best UL reel, or one that would at least be an upgrade to the Alphas Air.

1/64oz total weight...no way. I cant do that consistently/well enough to actually fish with a tricked out 16 Aldebaran BFS XG with a KTF spool and a SUL rod.

X2.
1/64oz is 0.44 grams. I am not sure if I can manage that with spinning tackle :-)

There has been quite a bit of discussion, in this thread and others, on “how low can you go”. My impression is that we have some extremely gifted people posting on TT. Sadly, me and average Joe are not that gifted. A lot of readers risk buying tackle only to discover that they cannot go that low with baitcasters.

For me with arguably the most finesse BFS setup around, cannot go that low total weight. I only count weights that are fishable with the setup.

Sure,it's some requirements to have a bit spase,not so windy,not a 100 feet cast :lol: ...but! It's possible.
I'm not a lier or troll,in my age mostly people think before talk. ;)
During this season,I'll make a video for you,guys.(if i'm still alive :) )

Get your kids hooked on fishing, and they'll never have any money for drugs or alcohol.

Yea,and some flyes (streamers,f ex)is match heavier,-1/16,1/8...
And jighead of 1/32-1/64 with small plastic is very effective for the small non-predarors fish(crucian carp,or gold fish, for example) .It's really hard to catch them,they're smart and so gentle baiting. In Japan and England crucian fishing is very popular...
Plus ,all small game fish you can get too.
