One of my favorite ultralight rods is an old Quantum Micro MS-54SUL which I believe was made by Zebco. I have it matched up with an equally old tiny Daiwa Spinmatic 500T reel and 2 lb test Izorline. Both rod and reel were probably purchased in the early 1990s, but are still in great shape and I am very careful with it. Although this set up is an inexpensive one, it is a joy to use on my nearby lake that has an abundant population of large Bluegill. This rod has a small diameter overall, but has an extremely small diameter tip, and because of this feature I can use the tinniest lures and detect subtle bites quite easily, not to mention how much fun it is to fight even a small sized fish.
These rods were discontinued some time ago and I cannot find UL rods like this at any of my local stores. I thought someone here on this site might have some info for me.
Are there other rod manufacturers that make UL rods with such small diameter tips? Does anyone know if rod blanks like this are available somewhere? Thanks in advance.

The only thing I can think of would be a mighty mite rod by master. But you are looking at an ice fishing rod, not a "regular" rod.

I just found out from an "expert" in fishing rods that the only American manufacturer of fishing rods that makes a rod with a "solid tip" like mine is Phenix. He said that I may have to go to a JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) to find the ultralight rod I want, and to be prepared to fork out some serious cash for it. I did find a rod that looks like what I want in a small photo I found. A Micro Master Super Featherlite 54" one piece rod by Hi-Tech Fishing. It looks like it may have the small tip, hard to tell. I'll give them a call to find out.

Komori, I have a Phoenix Elixir Series, Model FX701-1 Ultra light 7' 0", one piece. Line weight 2-6 lbs. Lure weight 1/32-1/4 oz.

Cost 100.00, maybe a little pricy, but I've decided that I want to really enjoy fishing while I'm retired........hope this helps, BTW, I've caught 10-11 inch gills on this rod with an ultralight Shimano reel, Sedona 500FD, 4 lbs line.

What I now refer to as Summer Trout, Gills at Perris............GT
