Just wondering what your favorite where your lightest big caster set up is?

My lightest setup is just under 10 oz...rod, reel, spooled with line, and a bait tied on.

My favorite is my Kistler helium 7’ and Daiwa Tatula Elite. Super light and smooth

Most of mine are right about 11 ounces ready to go. They are mixed and matched NRX's and Lews.

I’ve got one that is just over 8 ounces. It’s a saltwater speckled trout rod I use for plastics. The rod is a laguna. I played around with another they had that was even lighter. The whole rod ready to mount a reel and fish was 2 and change ounces.

Mine would be an NRX paired with a Shimano Aldebaran 50.

I am not sure what the 893 NRX weighs but the Abu Garcia MGXtreme2 I have on it only weighs 4.5oz. , I also have an 853 NRX with the same setup. They are pretty light.
The older I get the lighter I want my setup, helps my shoulder by the end of the day.
