Description

The Okuma Cascade Fly Reels offer an incredible value in the popular large arbor fly reel design. The Cascade uses the same one-way roller bearing technology found on more expensive reels, allowing for drag-free retrievals.

Features of the Okuma Cascade Fly Reels include:

  • Large arbor spool for high-speed retrieves
  • Super lightweight graphite frame and spool
  • One way clutch with stainless ball bearing
  • Palming ring for additional control
  • Reversible retrieve
  • Stainless steel main shaft
  • Extra-large surface disc drag system
  • Large drag control knob for easy operation

 All Good!
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Durable, Reliable, Easy Casting
Cons: None yet
Best Uses: Saltwater, Travel
Comments: Survived the suitcase and a weeks worth of saltwater flats fishing in Puerto Rico. Never dropped it but didn't really worry about it even if I did. Reasonably priced for an effective reel.

 Love okuma but
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Smooth Drag System
Cons: Wobble retrieve
Comments: I have a Okuma SLV 89 and love it, smooth, strong and trusty. The Cascade is smooth as well but wobbles like a wagon wheel heading to the frontier. Would be ok if you don't use backing but with a 9 wt Rio gold and 75' of 20 pound backing the $79 fly line is dragging against the reel. Did so much reel reviews miss ordered this one and meant to get the Redington Crosswater. Will let you know how that one goes.

 DECENT FOR THE PRICE
Pros: Light weight built well, INEXPENSIVE, Smooth Drag System
Cons: None yet
Comments: BOUGHT THIS REEL FOR MY BACK UP POLE. FELT A LITTLE LIGHT WHICH WORRIED ME INITIALLY, BUT I QUICKLY GOT OVER THAT QUICKLY. I LIKE THE LARGE DRAG WHEEL. THE DRAG WORKS GREAT BUT IT IS A LITTLE TOUCHY WHEN YOU ADJUST IT. THE ONLY ISSUE I HAD WITH THIS WAS THE O RING ON THE INSIDE OF THE DRAG WHEEL BROKE IMMEDIATEL, SO I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT LOSING THE DRAG WHEEL IF I HAVE IT SET TOO LIGHT. OTHER THAN THAT, GOOD REEL AT AN INEXPENSIVE PRICE. I HANDLED 4 LARGE TROUT AND MANY SMALL NON-KEEPERS THE FIRST DAY OUT ON THE BEAVER TAIL WATER.

 Okuma Cascade
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Top range performance, Incredible value, Reliable, Easy maintenance
Best Uses: Fly Fishing, Trout Fishing
Comments: I bought two of these, for my brother (retired Alaska fly-fishing guide), and his son. They live near Idaho's St. Joe river, and will be using these throughout northern Idaho and Northwest Montana. They both agree that Okuma's reels offer performance usually found on reels many times their price.
