im currently having problems palming my jerkbait reel (200e curado) for prolonged periods so my research has led me to think a 50e may be in my future. never touched a 50e so before i post a wtb add i’m wanting feedback from others in the know. am i going in the right direction on this and will the 50e be easier to palm with my tiny hands? and if not the 50e which reel do y’all suggest for my little problem?

thx in advance

I've never seen the 50E. I use the 200Es a lot though as they fit me well.

As for other reels that would be "smaller" (feels like to me) you could look at Lew's Speed Spools or BPS Pro Qualifiers.

Buddy has a 50, it is nice.

I use Lews Team Lites and would recommend you taking a look at those.

No doubt the 50e's are easier to palm. Much smaller

LEWS tournament mb, some of the smaller lews reels will fit your hand well.

I feel your pain bud! Look at the Lew's Custom, pretty small profile compared to others.

Both the Shimano Chronarch 50E and Shimano Curado 50E are small and light.They will serve you well.My favorite is the Shimano Core 50Mg7.If you can find one someone is willing to part with. thumb

Curado 70 might be a reel you should look into.

go to bass pro or cabelas and try them out; both have all their reels out to touch and feel.

I'm 6'4" and 270, but SOTA is working me down to a more manageable 225.

The Abu Revo ALX is also a good smaller reel unless your dead set on a 50e.
