    Default Searching for Ultralight JDM Reel with Slow Line Retrieve

    I have a Tenryu Lunakia 58 that is perfect for fishing vertically with a very, very slow retrieve (thanks Randy for your advice on the rod). I'm currently using both a Shimano AX-ULSA and Symetre with a line retrieve per crank of 18" and 21" respectively. Looking to upgrade to a reel with a gear ratio of 4.7:1 and slower for around 6.0 oz. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You might want to indicate your price range.

    I’m no help on the reel but welcome from Central Florida.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    My thoughts also. Tune it up and it makes for a great reel.

    Jawjatek and Alphahaw, thank you for the suggestion. I was able to order it on tackle warehouse. I also ordered the tune up kit on ebay. I'm no mechanical genius so I hope it comes with instructions.

    There is a tiny spring clip you have to remove when replacing the bushing in the spool. It is easy to let it get away from you. It is under the metal drag washer. As some on here suggested you might want to put the spool in a clear sandwich bag when you are removing it and putting it back. If it does pop off it stays in the bag. Here are some pics.
