Default Small rear drag spinning reels

Does anyone know of a "500" or "750" (50,75) size spinning reel with rear drag on the market? smallest I can find is 1000/100 size.

Was just wondering if they even make one in this size for ultra lite trout /crappie rigs.

Maybe it's me but I'm not seeing the RE model with rear drag in 500, I see the FD model goes down to a 500 size with front drag.....

Yeah I started using the bigger spools because of this. Depends on the line also. Before I go out I like to tie the line to my hitch and stretch it out. Sounds like more work I know but it saves a ton of headaches throughout the day.

My ultra lite rig doesn't get cast farther than 25' away most of the time, not that that really matters.
I'm using a 1000 size reel now on that setup and want a smaller one.
Never had an issue with line twist yet.

No loops either?
Try the fireline Crystal with a leader. The stuff will cast a country mile!

This is the comment:

Quote:
Pros: Price, Easy casting, Smooth
Cons: Not as durable as is could be
Best Uses: Light line (2-6 lb test)
Comments: I have this reel on a 10'6" light action rod that I use for drifting live and artificial baits. I don't know why rear drag reels aren't super popular, because they should be. This reel is great although it is a bit, well, flimsy. The wire for the bail will bend if you bump it, and if you slip and fall, something is probably going to break. It's a spectacular reel as long as you do not play rough with it. If it was $80 and a lot more durable I would be totally fine with it.

Sorry, bud that is a 1000 size, The Sienna RE rear drag (Sn1000RE) with a retrieve rate of 27 is no way a 500 size, even with line capacity at 2/270 4/140 6/110 it's a 1000.

500 would be in the retrieve rate of around 21

Oh well, I don't think they make one.

It is a 1000, the Specs l say that it is suitable forn10 lbs test.

Maybe a rear baitfeeder reel will do the same, check it out:

Front drag, rear drag. Set it and forget it. I personally despise rear drag spinners especially small ones. IMO not that it matters though.

I ended up getting a Lew's signature series wsp50 "500" size front drag reel,
I like it and already broke it in too.

I have multiple 1000 series Sienna Rear Drag, great little rear drag reels. Have most of mine loaded with 2lb xxx Izor, perfect for an ultralight setup.

I considered getting that one also,

since my quest for a 500 series rear drag was denied
I went with a front drag

I have 1000 series shimano syncopate's and 2500 series Daiwa's for lake fishing.
