**Note: We have an updated list of the Top 9 Ultralight Combos Here: Ultralight Combo Reviews
Pflueger Trion GX-7
This is the ultralight combo that I have used for 3 seasons already, and has become one of my favorite combos in my ultralight fishing arsenal. The rod is built with IM-8 construction in a two-piece design, with a high end cork handle. The reel is built using 6 stainless steel bearings, instant anti-reverse, Sure-Click bail, and a super-smooth operating front drag system that makes it easy to find the “sweet spot” in your drag settings.

Bass Pro Shops Micro Lite Elite
Bass Pro Shops know what they are doing when it comes to catching fish. They paired their famous Micro Elite spinning reel with their Micro Lite spinning rod to build a high performance setup that even the most advanced anglers will enjoy using. The Micro Elite reel features 8 ball bearings, and a smooth multi-disc drag system. The rod is built using a one piece design, constructed from IM-8 graphite blanks for superior sensitivity.

Abu Garcia Stamina SE
I’ve always loved Abu Garcia reels, and when they put together their Stamina SE ultralight fishing combo, my love was easily reinforced. I got to use this rod and reel on a trip with a friend, and the reel operates just as smooth as the Micro Lite Elite combo above. Garcia used IM-6 graphite to build the blanks, which helps to keep the price lower than what you would expect from a rod that offers this level of performance.

Quantum Teton Trout
The Quantum Teton Trout ultralight spinning combo is also a great little UL set up. My brother owns one and I had the chance to try it out. For such a low priced ultralight combo it works surprisingly well. The reel operates very smoothly with three ball bearings, and the rod has a great fast action that’s great for feeling even the softest strikes. This ultralight rod and reel combo is highly recommended.

Bass Pro Shops TinyLite
On a budget? If you are, you need one of the TinyLite ultralight combos from Bass Pro Shops. I recently purchased one of these for my nephew to go along with me and, for the price I paid, I was pleasantly surprised with how well it operates. The reel is easily palmed, even in his 12-year old hands, and the 1 piece rod made it easy for him to work lures without having to worry about the rod breaking at the ferrule.
