Okuma SLV Fly Reels feature a large arbor design which gives faster line retrieval for a single action reel. Traditionally known as a specialty reel, large arbor reels have been fished by the specialists. With the introduction of the SLV, Okuma has created the perfect blend of value and quality. Okuma has opened up the world of large arbor fishing. The SLV's rigid diecast aluminum construction and super strong, multi-disc cork drag will slow down the hardest charging fish.

Excellent fly reel! This is the second Okuma I own and the first one is still going strong after 8 years. Cosmetically, it looks great and the drag is awesome. I routinely hook into carp and 30+ inch northern on my lake and the drag has never let me down. I once had to fight a monster carp with my 5 wt for 2 hours with my little 5/6 okuma magnitude and it performed flawlessly. I've dunked it in the water countless times and it just keeps on truckin.
At this price point, why bother with anything else?
I bought this reel in a 5/6. Started using it this spring. Hooked up a 9lb steelhead that took me into the backing. Man that drag worked flawlessly! A better reel for the money cannot be had. I am going to replace my current 4wt with another one of these. Well dome Okuma!

Okuma SLV flyreels what can you say about them. I give a 5star, easy handling-light weight-durable an reliable-cost effective than spending $$$ for other brands. I would recommend people to purchase this product. Try it out an you won't be denied.. Happy fishing :-)
First of i like an Brand name OKUMA. I've been using Okuma spinning reels an i absolutly love them. Now i got into flyfishing an still decided to go with Okuma. I find the reel very managable an easy to use. Even to flip the bearing was easy. I've caught numerous trouts at the American River,CA. An since the salmon is running can't wait to catch my first. But until i do, would recommend this product of Okuma SLV fly reels. Price an quality is all worth the money spent. :-)
Took three Okuma fly reels to the Salmon River for our annual fishing trip and all three setups worked perfectly. Was able to set the drag at different levels with ease. This is really important especially if you are netting your own fish and it's a 30 to 35 lb. salmon.
Everyone should have at least one of these reals.
Great value for the money it cost.
