Best budget ultralight reel?
Okuma Ceymar C-10 are awesome ultralight reels. I have 3 of them, one of which is paired up with a Dock Runner rod, just like you want to do. Spool up with 10lb braid and you're good to go. I paid $30 each for them a couple years ago, not sure how much they fetch these days but should definitely be less than $45.
Not what I was expecting.
I paired this reel with an Okuma ultra lite rod for trout fishing. When I opened the box I was shocked at the size of the reel. I use mostly Shimano reels, and I am used to their sizing (500, 1000, 2500, etc.). Other manufacturers use similar systems to give you an idea of the spool size. Since this...

Okuma Ceymar, Daiwa Crossfire LT or Shimano Sienna?
I have the Shimano Sienna and Okuma Ceymar and they are both great reels. I slightly prefer the Ceymar due to the heavier bail but have been very happy with the Sienna too. Personally I don't think the Daiwa Crossfire is in the same class as the other two.
Nice for the Money
I got the size C10 for ice fishing....I have many reals for this purpose from inexpensive to premium. For the most part a premium reel is not worth the cost for crappie, perch, trout, and the occasional walleye. I recently landed a 6 lb 2 oz lake trout on 4 lb test with this reel and a Clam ML rod.....

Tackle Review #1: Okuma Ceymar C30 + Boyd Duckett Ghost Rod! VALUE and QUALITY!!
This is a good setup. a good medium heavy setup with the feel of a medium setup. so it's got the strength and the power you need with a lightweight profile and it handles the heavier stuff as well

C30 - Small, Light, Strong
It is smooth and light which is what I was looking for, but I was surprised at the size of it when I took it out of the box. It is small. I debated whether to return it or not without even giving it a shot. Decided to keep it because it felt well built and after a bit more research, after receiving ...

Defective Product: No Customer Service, Woudn't Buy Okuma Again
After being very happy with a C-30 for a year, I ordered a C-40. Gave it to my son for his birthday but he didn't need it. Finally got around to winding line a few weeks later and it turns out to be defective (see photo). Minus one star for that, but I know they can make a good spinning reel most of...

I probably won’t upgrade until my cheap spinning real breaks on me. This is probably going to be the replacement, any others around this price? From what I’ve read these are the best under $150 or so
The $50 Daiwa Laguna is a better reel (I’ve seen how it looks on the inside) and so is the Okuma Ceymar. The President isn’t bad, but it’s outdated. There are far better reels for $100 though, the President isn’t even close. Daiwa Fuego, Okuma ITX and Shimano Nasci all beats it.
Great little reel!
This is a surprisingly well designed/built spinning reel, for the price. I purchased the smallest version available for ultra light fishing. It's the C-10, size 1000 in case you were wondering, and it's a blast. It has a smooth action, ambidextrous handle choice, competent drag, and a back reel (fre...
