Seigler Reels Small Game Narrow Lever Drag Reels were designed out of the need for smaller and lighter reels with enough strength for large inshore fish. These reels are narrow but still have enough stopping power for pulling bottom fish out of their dark holes. These reels are ideal for species in shallower water where line capacity is secondary to power.

  • Decreased weight
  • Non drive side reduced diameter
  • More compact version of the Seigler Small Game
  • 30# of drag

Best small reel
I paired the Seigler SGN with a gravitate G1 slow pitching rod, spooled with Suffix 50lb test braid.
The reel performed very well with no binding. It was very smooth and was very comfortable. Caught 2 red groupers one was 28 inches long, 3 red snappers various sizes, bonita 30 inches. I went on the 12 hour extreme Florida middle grounds trip out of Hubbard's Marina in Madiera Beach, FL
No problems at all.
Best small reel I have ever used!
ProsVery comfortable! A Powerhouse!

Quality at a fair price
The SGN model is a tank for its size yet it’s very lightweight and smooth.
ProsLightweight, well built, great looking and powerful for its size.
ConsI wish that the reel had a spool tension control separate from the drag lever like the star drag type reels have because when bottom fishing the free spool speed is way too fast, and using the drag lever cannot fine tune the drop rate adequately.

Very sweet looking reel
Reel matched up nicely with a St Croix jigging stick. Looks very well made. Can't wait to get it on the salt to give it a workout
ProsLight nicely machined made in the USA
ConsCan't think of any

Cracking reel!
Fished Shimano Trynos’s for many years but can’t get 10’s & 12’s in Aus anymore. Searched for some time for replacement and loved the buzz around Seiglers SGN. Fantastic value for money. Fished for demersals in 30m+ many times over the last 12 months. Reel has been a beast! Red Emporer, Dhufish & Rankin Cod >10kgs no problem.
ProsSmall, light and incredibly powerful. Fish all day & no fatigue.
ConsDrag clicker in an awkward position.

Just right for most everything I fish for.
This is the perfect reel for most everything I fish for. I bought mine last year and it has been flawless. I let my elderly friend, who has a bad shoulder, use it and he had me order one from him the next day. This lightweight and smooth reel has a fast retrieve and is perfect for him.

Paired this with a Shimano Tallus MH 7' and have primarily used it for striped bass, both small and quite large. Absolutely love it. Far exceeded my expectations.
Proslight weight power build quality-machining warranty aesthetics
Consone small ergonomic feature: I tend to inadvertently activate the clicker quite often.It might be my habit of hand position, too easily activated or maybe poorly located switch. In no way is this a deal breaker. Still a fantastic little powerhouse.

Awesome reel, made in USA!
I bought two small game narrow (SGN) reels by Seigler. Reel comes in a cloth bag that is numbered and matches number on reel. I bought these for light offshore use, but primarily for trolling behind kayak for large inshore fish. Reels are incredibly smooth, and very well made. No wiggle on any of the components, incredibly strong drag for size of reel which is very light.
ProsVery strong drag in a lightweight conventional reel. Initial impression is that these are extremely well made. Also made in USA which is a plus.
ConsNot really anything wrong with the reel, I have always used spinning reels, so will take some time to get used to conventional reels to limit birdnests.

I love the (release, then truth and now seigler) sg and have a fleet of them. The new sgn is a perfect reel! Comfortably palmed, 320 yards of #50 braid super sommth and great drag and incredibly light for how powerful they are.
ConsAluminum handle ball is cold and sticky in winter.

How do these reels compare to an Accurate Valiant BV300 as far as drag "smoothness"? I've watched and read almost every Seigler review I could find and I see everyone gushing over the form factor/ dimensions and max drag poundage but I can't find anyone that has done a real-world review discussing drag performance.
1 Answers
The drag is smooth and not as clunky as some other lever drag reels, people gush about them because they are in fact great reels.
