Okuma Avenger "A" Series
Spinning Reels

$15.00 Off All Remaining Okuma Avenger "A" Series Spinning Reels! Regular Price $34.95, Now $19.95! Supplies Are Limited. If one of these items show out of stock in your basket please remove it or it will be removed from your order and the total will be adjusted. Thank you.

The Okuma Avenger "A" Series spinning reels offer a tremendous value in durable, super-smooth six ball-bearing front drag reels. Okuma has done it again by increasing the spool capacities for each size Avenger "A" while decreasing the overall weights, thanks to the totally redesigned spools and and thinner, stronger blade bodies. The patented Elliptical Oscillation System provides a smoothness normally found in reels priced much higher than the Avenger "A" Series.

Standard features of the Avenger "A" Series spinning reels include:
  • QuickSet anti-reverse one-way bearing
  • 6 precision ball bearings
  • RES II Rotor Equalizing System
  • Lightweight ported aluminum spool
  • Helical cut brass pinion gear
  • High quality Japanese oiled felt drag washers
  • Hydro Block water tight drag seal
  • Oversized ceramic line roller
  • Corrosion resistant graphite body construction
  • Reversible right and left hand retrieve
Each model includes a spare graphite spool.

I have been using these reels for three years. I do use them alot  at least once a week and have used these reels to catch some big fish 20-25 pounds on light test line. They are smooth even being used in salt water and have reasonalble drags. The finish will wearout but they still work fine. I have owned several HIGH DOLLAR but ,those reels now stay home. For what you pay to have a reel professionally cleaned one time you can buy one of these reels. Very good reel for the money and if sometime down the road they stop working I will save the parts and pull out a new one, I bought a half dozen for reserve , thats how much I think of these reels, you can't go wrong.!!!


Pros: Price, guality very light, smooooth

Cons: none

Best Uses: Salt wather /fresh 8-10 pound test line

I bought one of these reels at a local sporting goods store for $30.00 about 3 years ago.  I just bought eight more at $19.95.  Does that tell you something? 

It is a GREAT inexpensive reel that you can just leave in the back of your truck.  I really do love a reel that's somewhat light and I can beat the crap out of it. 


Pros: Durable, Great Price. Great Drag

I have been fishing Redfish with junk reels which is a difficult. I also have a Penn 360 Slammer which is primo but a bit oversized for inshore and cost 5 times as much. I downsized to the Avenger 30a with 20# braid on a 5'-6 medium action rod. The fight is teriffic compared to just winching the fish in. The 6 ball bearings and really smooth drag system have added sport to fishing.

Bang for the buck.  As soon as I got it, I used the 30a to catch my personal best largemouth at a lake in Southern California.  The drag works excellent and the spinning action on the reel is incredibly smooth.  Next, I took the 30a out to Hawaii and caught several Ulua (Papio) on shrimp.  Those fish fight hard and the reel did a great job of handling the fish.

I fish from kayaks in salt inshore or shorleline areas, catching large stripers and blues. I love to do this on such light tackle as the Avenger 30, because these reels meet the challenge, and for the price, who cares if it lasts me about two years or so?? I've bought Stradics and other more expensive reels, and MAYBE they last longer .. maybe not. These reels are great and cost a bit more than the line I put on them. Super value!!

smoother than my Daiwas, this is a nice solid quality instrument. But I wish the additional spool (supplied with this reel) was the same quality as the primary metal spool rather than plastic... maybe Okuma could offer the option of adding additional metal spools with the initial order.

The A65A series is a great reel, so's the larger one. The lesser reels tend to not be as dependable but are good for begginners. I fish 6 days a week, own fishing resorts in Costa Rica and fish Colorado Rivers almost daily. These are care free reels, even if maintenance is ignored, to a degree. Beats all the newer reels I've worked in business and professionally. In fact I'm ordering more as I write. Randy Smith, Glenwood Springs, CO. P.O.

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I surf cast along the mid California coast and this reel has worked great on my 10 foot Custom Striker grafite pole with both bait and jigs from 3 oz. up to 12 oz. that I have used. I have had no problems after trying it out over several weekends off the shore and with a lighter rod on two costal rivers. The extra plastic bail really came in handy when I went up a river from the beach and needed to change to a lighter test line. The reel is smooth and dependable and holds enough line to make those long casts out past the breakers with out having to go out to far. This is the first Okuma product I have purchased and will buy more considering the exelent quality.

I have had 3 of these reel break off where they connect to the rod. Every time i had a fish on. The warrenty stinks. You pay shipping both ways and have to pay for money order. They told me they had some bad reels out. Then they should pay shipping. Then instead of a new reel you get a rebuilt one. No more okuma for me!

I was looking forward to using this reel, but was soon disappointed when I tried it out. The line dragged too much when casting and it was difficult to get any distance even with a heavier lure. It was difficult to reel and release the bail, and the line was constantly getting tangled and twisted. The reel was also too heavy for my liking. It was very frustrating fishing with it.
