 Okuma Helios Low Profile Baitcasting Reels
Pros: weight, ease of use, looks
Cons: haven't had any yet.
Comments: I have recently picked up a Helios Baitcaster and paired it up with a Helios Baitcasting Rod. Being fairly new to using a baitcaster I was very surprised how easy this combination is to use. The lite weight of the rod and reel combination is something I have never experienced before and since I fish out of a kayak the reduced weight of the rod and reel without any tradeoff of strength has me thinking of pruchasing more of these combos.
