Jerry. Comparing the model 95 to the Payne Fly-lite it appears they are related. The reel foot is bigger in proportion on the Fly-lite and a black color.

hi,

does any one know what the weight of the Marryat Baby fly reel is? it doesnt say on their website but it sure looks light enough to blow away on a midsummer nights breeze

I recently weighed my Click III with about 75 yards of backing and Sage QDTII2 and it came in at 3.2 oz.
I also weighed a JA Forbes Aerial 2.5" and it came in at 3.4 oz with Rio Trout LT DT2 and 20ish yards of backing. With only the backing it was 3.0 oz but I'll try to weigh the reel without the backing to see if that gets it closer to it's supposed weight of 2.8 oz.

Vintage & inexpensive:

H-I Sportcraft 60 2 7/8", light aluminum single pawl

Airex Ablette (Meisselbach-Catucci) 370/373 or the slightly larger 371/373/377

370/371 have single pawl (reversible by flipping the pawl)

373/375 have double pawls

377 double pawls plus adjustable drag (external knob moves internal plastic tensioner putting pressure against pawl spring)

various old-timey skeleton reels or small multipliers from the turn of the century to the 50s- Atlas Portage, Pflueger Progress, Hendryx, Meisselbach Featherlight, Montague, Union Hardware, Shakespeare Kazoo, Winchester, True Temper, often marked with a "40", "60", or "80" to note the line capacity in yards (using level G silk line, I think). Diameter typically between 2 1/4" and 3".

Some are pricer than others, although even the good ones can often be had in good fishable shape for less than $100. Some of the cheap skeleton reels actually work pretty nice, but they're on the flimsy side. The cheap multipliers, like the Atlas Portage, are sturdier. And very cool, with those beveled ivorine plastic handles.

Newer (1980s) and expensive:

Sage Hardy 503/503L (L models have extra holes drilled in frame and on reel foot for even lighter weight)

Orvis Hardy CFO II
