What's the lightest setups you have? casting and spinning. I am just now getting into the ultra light setups and I have become addicted to it. I have become a rod snob. The high end rods and reels have ruined me lol

None. Never want to break off a fish and always fishing heavy cover.

The lightest one I have in a bait caster is an NRX 1/8-3/8 oz lure rating with a Daiwa Tatula Elite.

What do you mean by Lightest setup? Going by weight (rather ounces) or like 4lb test line on a light action spinning rod?

St. Croix Avid AC 69MLXF with a Shimano Metanium reel used for drop shotting. Have 15 # Seaguar Invix on it because I throw it right into fairly heavy shoreline cover.
Have 12 # on the other one for more open water. Neither are much good when you get a giant on and it runs into the standing timber and goes around trees..

7' 1" Phenix Feather L action topped with a Daiwa Pixy reel from Japan. Usually run 8 lb mono or Fluorocarbon on it, but if I need to, I'll drop down to 6. Great for 1/16 oz jigheads with a grub in the winter and weightless Trickworms in the spring.

Oh. That lightest.

I have a few Steez/Steez AGS combos that weigh in under 10 oz with line and lure attached.
