About Me:
These rods are a great deal!! I bought two of these one at 7'0" and one at 7'6". As soon as I found em on here, I bought another of each, and I talked a buddy into buying the same. I LOVE THE RODS. They are nice and light, yet can cast a mile with 6 pound test. I can chuck a 3/8oz Kastmaster for days! I would recommend these to anyone as they are cheap, yet seem to be put together well enough to cost a lot more money. Great deal on FishUSA!!!!

Monroe, NC

About Me:
none

I must note that I have lightned up on my fishing tackle for various reasons.  With that said, I have purchased several of the Okuma Celilo spinning rods in various lengths.  I have tried to get a pair of each length.  This strategy has given me multiple casting options as well as allowed me to create a nice, balanced trolling spread.  I am a saltwater angler and have found over the years, the inshore fishery has become and continues to become more finicky.  The Okuma Celilo rods have not let me down from redfish to spanish mackerel.  I can easily cast the lighest of lures especially the famous Clark Spoons.  My hookup rate has increased since lightening up and fish loss has been minimal.  In addition, I use these same rigs in my fresh water crappie spread.  They work marvelous.  As I have mentioned before, the only negative is they are two piece.  I just glue them together with Seal All and all are now one piece.


Pros: Accurate Casting, Durable, Feel and Sensitivity, great action, great for multiple species, Great value for the money, Reasonably priced, very nice quality

Cons: would prefer a 1 piece rod

Best Uses: any fishing you may want to do with these rods, casting with light lures, crappie rigging, Light saltwater, Light saltwater inshore, Match with a light reel with 6# test., possibly light tackle offshore, a

I never heard of these rods until last Summer when we went out on a boat  Perch fishing on Lake Erie out of Erie, PA. My Brother Inlaw had boughten 2 of them and I used one and was very impressed with the action and quality for the price.I got home and oreded 2 from FISHUSA and used them in the Fall. My Son inlaw saw them and he to was impressed on these rods and wanted to know where I got them. I told him that they were not avaiable locally. On Xmas morning he was very surprised to see 2 of them under his Xmas Tree. I am going to get 2 more in the Spring. I would rate these rods as a 10 out of 10!!

About Me:

I created this rod into a super Okuma combo.  I have two paired with an Okuma Avenger 25b spinning reel and one with an Okuma Stratus 25 spinning reel.  I fish out of a flats boat on the North Carolina coast for inshore gamefish (flounder, trout, and redfish).  The configuration of my rod holders create a great rig for crappie fishing when I cannot make the trip to the beach.  I use 4lb High-Seas test mono.  It makes a great outfit that is perfect for crappie and/or inshore light tackle.  I have not attempted to use it for spanish mackerel, but that day is coming.  I think it will do the job.  If note, I am not a 2 piece rod fan...so I glued them together, applied a little paint, and some clear fingernail polish to finish it off.


Pros: super sensitive, great for multiple species

Cons: would prefer a 1 piece rod

I love this rod. Inexpensive ,but well made. Recommended to me by my buddy who builds rods for a hobby. I have used it casting off shore for lakers in lake superior. Then I used it at the two hearted river in upper michigan for coho salmon. It is light weight, strong and flexible. I might get another one for my son. My biggest problem is now I want to go more and am too busy. But it is in my jeep ready to go when the opportunity presents.

I've purchased several Okuma rods from FishUSA, but the Celilo I have is an ultra-light that I use for crappies and small trout. You get a well-made rod for an exceptional price. You can't go wrong with the Celilo when you consider the value. I have family and friends who are occasional fishermen, who haven't accumulated a ton of gear. I keep extra rods as lenders when I take guests fishing. I tell them not to worry, I've got just what they'll need. I may purchase a few more as gifts for the kids. If they break a tip in a car door, you're not out $150+.

I don't think I would try and it around mangroves but it will handle most situations for light saltwater use and you can cast all day with it. Rod is just a pleasure to use.

I own three of these rods, a light, medium light, and medium. I like the way they look and cast. They're light in my hands. I didn't like the long Type B handle though. As soon as I received the ML and M, I cut the cork handle back to 5". I use the 7'6" light for trout streams, the 9'6" medium light for small rivers/ponds, and the 8'6" medium for larger bodies. The two lighter rods handle trout and larger bass with no problems. I'm waiting to hook a decent sized northern pike on the medium to see how it handles that type of pull. I always keep my rods in cases when not actually in use and ANY rod tip will snap off if you're walking through the woods and jam it into a pine tree...These rods are perfect for someone who sees no sense in owning a $300 spinning rod...

Pros: Attractive, Flexible, Sensitive, Accurate Casting, Easy To Transport, Good Tip Action

Just wanted to update my review. I started using this rod for trolling as well as plastics. I love the actio that the 7'0" rod delivers when trolling. I managed to land a 15# trout out of Corona Lake while trolling with this rod. I am amazed that a rod of this price range can give such great tip action while at the same time having enough back bone to land a 15# Rainbow Trout fighting for it's life. Don't hesitate, this is a great rod! Well worth the money and then some!

This is a great rod. I bought the 7'0" model, and it has enough backbone for larger fish and has a nice whipiness for casting small lures/power worms/jigs. I have it matched up with a Pinaccle Tiny Deadbolt, and this is a great combo for trout. Took it out for this first time this past weekend, and it performed well above my expectations for the price tag. All of my guides are in allignment, and I could not be happier with it's performance.

About Me:

I love this rod because it allows me to cast further and is light weight. I surf fish almost every day on my way home from work because my drive is about 30 out of 42 miles of prime Southern California beach from Santa Barbara to Oxnard. When I surf fish I tend to walk up and down the beach 1 to 2 miles and then back to where I started. This rod is also very good for lakes and streams, although I mostly surf fish.I like this rod so much that I ordered a second one for a female friend that I am teaching to fish. This resulted in another friend asking me to teach him, and he has ordered the same rod after I let him try out mine. And if you are wondering if it could really handle the bigger fish, I do catch, battle, and land large legal size halibut from the surf.

Pros: Sensitive, Good Tip Action, Great value for the money, Accurate Casting

Cons: none
