 >  > Okuma Convector Linecounter Reels
Description

The redesigning of the Convector takes this reel to a new level. This reel features quick-set anti-reverse, utilizing a special oversized one way roller bearing, to eliminate all handle play and guaranteeing immediate hook sets.

The Convectors have three ball bearings - two stainless steel sealed bearings and one one-way roller bearing. They also include Okuma's new drag material, "Carbonite." This proprietary drag balances the two most important qualities in a drag without sacrificing either - smoothness and high-end drag pressure. These new drags have the softness to set the hook in the soft mouth of a lake trout, and the drag pressure to crank a running tuna to the boat.

Features of the Okuma Convector Linecounter Reels include:

  • Beautiful machined aluminum spool
  • Okuma's "QuickSet" infinite anti-reverse one-way bearing
  • Okuma's "Speed Loc" pinion gear system
  • Precision cut, stainless steel gears (self lubricating)
  • Lightweight and strong Titan graphite body
  • Titanium coated SUS level wind
  • Oversized, super smooth, multi-disk Carbonite drag system
  • Stainless steel reel foot
  • Ergonomic fordged aluminum handle with oversized, comfortable knob
  • Line counter measuring line in feet
  • Large star drag mechanism
  • Line clicker

Great reel for the price. I use these on saginaw bay and they work flawlessly. I have the now discontinued cabelas depth master gold reels for about 6-7 years and I believe okuma made those also. I prefer the left hand models. We also reeled in 15 lb. catfish with ease, very smooth drag. FISH USA is also a 5 star company. I purchased 6 of these reels and will buy more.

I found this reel to be hard to beat unless you are going spend the extra dough for a Shimano Tekota. You would be hard pressed to find a better value or that much better of a reel until you get to the Shimano level. I also have several Okuma Magda's, but find the Convector to be much superior and would recommend spending the extra money for the Convector .For the price and quality the Convector is a solid performer that you won't have to worry you made a mistake in buying one. Very smooth reel with good drag. I am very happy with mine. I have had Daiwa Accudepths and find the Convector to be a better reel to them as well.

Great trolling reel, smooth action and decent drag...really best part is the price tag, you get a lot of high end performance for a reasonable price. I've run all kinds gear off these and they run fine. There are better reels for a few times more and this one has a few quirks but all in all, a solid performer that's priced well.
Pros: durable, good drag

This reel went way past my expectations. The body is graphite and light weight. The reel comes with a power handle but included in the box is the walleye double grip handle. Speaking of the grips they are a nice rubber that wont slip. The line counter works well, the handle turns well as doesn't feel out of balance. The drag system is nice and the size of this will fit most of your trolling needs for trout, walleye, northern pike, etc. I think it would also hold up for Musky; I am going to give it a shot this year. I bought this and a Daiwa Accudepth to compare side by side before I purchase more to complete my setup - hands down this is a better reel.
Pros: I like it

I was looking for a mid-range priced linecounter reel for downrigging. The description and Convector reel caught my attention. It appeared be of high quality and reasonably priced. When I received it, put it in my hands, and spooled-up I was impressed. I would put it up against any similar reel in the $200 and up range. Smooth, quiet, opertion of gears; and the instant anti-reverse is as advertised.

Got the CV-20DLX (LH) to match up with my SST-C-1062M for trolling and mooching for Salmon.  Could not have asked for a better combination.  The line counter is invaluable while mooching and the strength of the reel is ridiculous.  I like this reel so much that I bought the same one two more times for my spare trolling rods.

Pros: Quality product, Comfortable handle, Reliable, Smooth Reeling, Smooth Drag System, Price

Mainly used for muskies and trolling dipsy divers for walleye on Erie. This is the tried and true choice of most of my fishing pertners. For the price I think it's the best line counter out there. Diawa has a choppy drag and touchy drag setting. The Convector is way smoother in both departments. I already have some.... just adding to the arsenal!
