Yeah exactly, my son is learning with one at present and it has served him very well his next birthday I will upgrade him to a nicer reel but for now he has caught a lot of fish with it......

My 2 also get a good work out mainly on small SP,s and HB's for trout they are awesome thumbsupsmilie

Yep, apart from light lure casting on "Normal" rods I match the little Cetus to an "Ugly Stik", Canoe Rod (3ft 6") for use in tight spots. Balances perfectly on that rod where a larger reel wouldn't. You'd be surprised just how easily that little combo casts and the distances obtained with the ultra light HB's (Scat Backs & Mini Humbugs etc.)
