Default Smallest Reel with Harness Lugs

Anyone know the smallest reel available that has harness lugs on it? Looking for something small and lightweight for some inshore trolling, but due to storage restraints, it needs to be have harness lugs so it can be mounted securely in place upside down. It looks like the Avet HX might be it but wasn’t sure if there was anything smaller.

Thanks guys, looking to keep the budget down on these though. The fallback will be finding a pair of well kept used 113's but I don't mind spending a little more for a newer/lighter reel.

I have a pair and maybe four of the Penn 113's,I may be willing to part with.

The penns with stainless steel spools.

Penn squall 16VSX 2 speed has lugs, the single speed lever drag squall has switchblade lugs in the 50 and 60 size reels as well. I have 2 squall 60 single speeds that I used for light inshore trolling this year, bonito, mahi, false albies, held up great and didn't have any issues.

The brackets on this page will add lugs to any reel so you can use a harness

The lugs are more for storage purposes than harness purposes. These will store upside down in a locker while the boat is under way so it's important they're well secured.

I have some Okuma Cedros 10 lever drags with lugs. They come with the lugs turned inside the reel so you have to open them up to flip the lugs to out.
