Daiwa Tatula 8.1:1

Light and smooth. Spool is a thing of beauty.  Fine gears to produce the 8:1 ratio.  Great for throwing 1/8 jigs.  Many use it for steelhead fishing in the PNW.  Not the greatest drags for that application but you could do it,  I worry about the gear and pinion after a few hot steelhead but it would cast like a dream all day long!  Some new Carbon Fiber drags and re-lube bearings and she is good to go!
