The Sage Click II is 2 3/8 oz. I use a Click I on a 0wt rod and it works great.

Hi Robert,

You know me and so you might guess that I would point toward an old Martin MG-3. You have to watch for them to come for sale on the auction site and then be prepared to pay 50 - 75 dollars for one but they make a great light reel. I would have to strip the line from mine to give a weight but they may be lighter than the Hardy Featherweight (under 3oz.) which they were meant to be an affordable second to. Very sharp reel with an adjustable spring & pawl check.

Man, I started this thread a while ago. Since then, I got a Fishon reel for my bamboo rod, and two (2) Orvis BBS reels (a I and a II).

It weighs 2.4 oz. I have a 5'6" 3 wt that I need to balance. The price is only 99 bucks...but it's not a brand like orvis or sage, so I was wondering if it's better to just spend another 25.

It's definitely the lightest one I have seen thus far, which may work better for me tiny rod.

Cool, they brought it back.

I've seen lots of good things said about that reel and wanted one for my 1 wt but BPS quit carrying them for about a year. Maybe they did a re-work on them.

ETA: Yup, there was some re-design done on them Look at the pictures in this review, they look different

axle, one of my recommendations is the Fishon Bear Cub. Simple, economical but yet enough quality to hang in there for a long time. The last two i bought were $35 a copy.

I have several sub 4 oz reels. The most expensive is my P1 by Waterworks and then ranging from there down in cost to the Martin 60s I pick up from Ebay and all do the job. The martin is 3.7 while the P1 drops another ounce mol. For an reel that is in the middle cost wise and a superb value with a great long-time reputation go for the SA Sytem 2L 23:
System 2L Model 23L
Applications:
* The smallest and lightest reel in the System 2 family
* The perfect ultralight tackle for pursuing small trout and panfish

DRAG: Whisper-smooth single-caliper disc
CAPACITY: 50 yd/46m - 20 lb backing (WF-3-F)
WEIGHT: 3.6 oz/103g
DIAMETER: 2.69"/6.8cm
WIDTH: 0.5"/1.3cm

Never heard of a Vogue Reel, sure it's not a rebrand for a particular store? You should post a pic in the "reel love" thread.
