    I have both the TR-1 and the TR Light. I think the TR-1 is a little heavy on 2 wt rods. The TR Light is better, for me at least.

    Another click-pawl reel is Bass Pro's Classic UltraLight. It's pretty light at 2.4 oz. - $100.

    Just saw that Leland Upgrade has an Abel TR Light right now. That's a sweet reel with a cool old-timey look. Wish I had a rod for it.

    I have a Ross Evo 0 on my Echo 2 weight and it is a perfect match.

    A friend of mine built and gave me a 6.5 ' 2wt IM6 fly rod recently. All my reels were too heavy for the little thing. I went online and purchased a graphite reel labeled J. Ausitn Forbes (made in Japan) that weighs only 2.8 ounces with line and backing. It was not expensive (less than $75.00), and it is a pretty neat reel and is adequate for anything I catch with a 2wt rod.

    OK, I have to ask.

    Where are Litespeeds selling for $119?

    Thanks all for the great advice. As always this group came out to help a fellow angler. I like the Hardy Featherweight and might go that direction. Might have a deal in the making for one.

    Ask and you shall receive!

    I'm sure this has all really helped you narrow down your choice.

    My first question would be do you want a classic or modern looking reel? Some folks, myself included, don't care for a large arbor modern reel on a traditional looking rod such as your scott. If you want traditional the hardy LRH reels are incredible click/check reels and yet are light enough to balance that rod and maintain the traditional setup. If I had to go more modern it would be a lamson ULA purist reel, also a reel that you palm to create drag. maybe a sage click I or II.
