Nice little set up for the money.
I've a couple of similar but slightly heavier combos I use.
I tend to remove the levelwinds on most of my multipliers and blank off the cage holes or fit a dummy bar.
Reasons? You get more distance, the leader knot won't get trapped and under heavy load levelwinds can jam.
I also polish the spindles, remove brakes and just use 20w 50w or similar motor oil to act as a brake.
Not sure if you are using braid, if not it will certainly help with setting the hook. But check the rod rings to make sure they are ok with braid. _________________ There is a fine line between the angler and madness
Hi Springwell, yes I use braid as a main line for 90% of my lure fishing.
Re removing the line guide, on the low profile baitcasters the line guide locks in place when free spool is engaged which makes a massive difference to casting.
I have also been know to do a few tweeks to my reels, the first and probably the best is ceramic bearings.
What a revelation the ultra light kit has been, not so much the the rod and reel but how it works the lure.
The combination of clear water and small lures has been very interesting. The light jig head and the slow descent through the water then leaving it stationary on the bottom and watching the line for a take is great fun even if it has only been small perch to date.
I am trying to sort out some small light ned rigs lures ( I have heads from AGM) to give that a full workout. It has also given me a lot of ideas for future lure fishing trips not just with the ultra light kit.
As I mentioned in the YouTube video I am not convinced the ultra light rod is capable of setting the hook at range but it is perfect for close work at 10 to 15 yards or meters.
More YouTube vids to come .
