    Looking for a 2/3 or 3/4 WT reel, needs to be sub $100 and sub 4oz

    Maybe someone has one or more laying around, just seeing what's out there. I'm looking for 2 total.
    They will be going on short creek rods. 7'6" and shorter. I have my eye on a few retail options but would rather put a dust collector to use and not pay full retail ;) In reality I'm simply looking for line holders but don't want "clunk" on the back of my rod, it makes for annoying casting.

    Hit me up if you have something that might fit my request - we'll go from there.

    Galvan standards may suit your needs.

    Yeah I like Galvan reels, I used to have a Galvan OB for my 5wt. Wonder if the Standards are to be found in the sub $100 range.

    How about a Pflueger Medalist 1494 for much less? Try Ebay I suppose.

    Teton 4 and Lamson LP1...I have both available with extra spools and both in spotless condition. Also have a Lamson LP 1.5 Light, clicker reel. Will weigh these reels and add details in the morning if you are interested.

    For sub 100.00, Galavn wouldn't qualify.

    I think the new Orvis Barrenkill would be the best bet for what yer after.

    The now discontinued Cortland Retro would be worth looking into also. I think they can be had for less than $80 new. Very nice click pawl reel with exposed rim for the money.
