    I have been considering a Lamson Force, Nautilus, Tibor, Abel what do you have?
    4wt Line would be a bonus

    Lamson Force, Nautilus, Tibor, Abel? For cryin out loud, 4 wt doesn't have to stop a freight train. Go buy an Airflo or sumpin and be done with it.

    I beg to differ, many a Coho have been landed on my 4wt Z-Axis on Pollywogs, I have a Galvan T-5 on it and you needed the drag. Throw in a few rainbows over 24" and its nice to have the quality. Alaska tends to redefine capabilities of a rod.

    Vinest,

    I think I have an extra Galvan T floating around, I will find it and send you a PM.

    Get a sage 3200 or Click for lightweight. Get a Redington CD 3/4 if you need a drag.

    Did you get my PM? I have a Redington drift with new line and backing and a J A Forbes Magnesium also with new line and backing. Never fished $75 each plus shipping.

    You also don't need an Abel to land a steelhead. I landed one on a Maryat reel and a Sage LL 4 wt. and it worked fine. The drag on that reel is nothing to write home about but it handled it just as well as my Billy Pate. If you want more than a servicable reel, that's cool but on a 4 wt., you don't need anything special unless you want the high end stuff. There nothing wrong with buying quality stuff.

    It might be a plus to give some definition to your term "light weight", whether you plan to use it with bamboo, glass or graphite and rod length.
    Are you "budget minded" or do you have a little more than average capital?

    Wow! I have gotten a lot of responses, thanks!! I have to look them all over tonight and get back to everyone.

    I am trying to find a light reel to balance out a Orvis Helios 4wt 9' my budget depends on what comes up that I like, but for a reel that is going to be for mainly Trout/smallies reel maybe $300
