Looking for the lightest long distance spinning reel.

Would 15.5oz work - Ultegra 5500 Ci4?

It would be perfect if they make that reel in 4000.

5500 is too big for  me

I have a Daiwa EMBLEM 5000; good long distance reel but too big for my liking.

I am trying to see if I can get few carp reels, from Germany, in 4000 size

All I could find was a one with shallow spool

I didn't see any AR-C with deep spool

sorry I can't do links. the specs I get off Ebay are PE 1.5 (15lb braid) 320 meters 1.0 braid 10lb  500 meters. tie on a 50lb test shock and you should be good to go. realize this is a small , low end reel for $150. great for pomps, whiting puppy drum. it is an ultegra with a long cast spool. big rays, medium size sharks  , 45" reds and black drums are going to put a hurting on this reel. It is very  very light, has great line lay and excellent potential for long casts

5500 ultegra is quite a bit  smalller than an Emblem 5000, but I understand you want smaller still

Daiwa makes some "25" sized mini big pit reels.

What rod will you pairing the new toy with?

Most likely, Okuma Rockaway 11' M, rated 3/4 to 3 oz

I have an ODM, DNA, NXD-115, rated 1 -5 but I do like Rockaway much better than this one.

If I use bait those big reels will be fine but not for plugging.

I have a 12' Rockaway paired with, guess what reel?

Rockaway 6K, lol

I loved that combo but still that reel is more on heavy side that I would like.

If and when I go bait fishing (maybe 4 to 5x a year) I have an 13" Fiblink rod paired with either Emblem 5000 or Okuma Cedros 5500.

I am not after any 100 lb fish; any 5lb is good for me since I very rarely keep any fish.

I do bait fish only when I am with my family, stationed on one spot on the beach so my kid can have a "trill" of reeling a fish.

That's all for me.

Most of the time I am walking up and down the beach so less weight is much better for me.

Long Island beaches are much different than South Africa.

Thank you for your input

But Saragosa is too big and too heavy.

Stradic FL / Sustain FJ / Twinpower FD.

All have long stroke spools from the Stella design.

Light and lovely to use.

They cast beautifully.

Use light braid and a braid casting leader and you should be able to easily get 2oz lures to 100m+ with your 11' 3/4-3oz.

I use the older Sustain FI (non long stroke design) on a 11' 3/4-3oz and have it filled with PE1.5 or PE2
