As mentioned earlier, I’ve been using the 2500D-XH model and it weighs 7.2 ounces. While it’s not the lightest reel I’ve had an opportunity to use this year, it certainly won’t make you uncomfortable. Most spinning reels you’ll find under the $120 range tend to average roughly 8 ounces, so this is certainly an improvement. 

The carbon light material housing definitely helps reduce unnecessary weight and the machined aluminum handle eliminates any flexing or cracking you might experience with some budget-friendly spinning reels.
