 >  > Okuma VSystem Spinning Reels

The Okuma VSystem Spinning Reels are the marquee spinning reels from the company that is setting the standards for spinning reel technology. The VSystems are built on the foundation of the patented EOS elliptical oscillation drive gears, offering superior line lay while maintaining unmatched stability. Due to the elliptical shape of the gears, they are constantly engaged during the two stroke oscillation.

The Okuma VSystem Spinning Reels also feature the new, revolutionary Dual Force Drag system, DFD. In addition to the traditional multi-disk drag, it has a large drag system mounted beneath the spool, which by equalizing the drag force, stabilizes and dissipates heat, promising smooth drag operation under extreme tensions. Each VSystem reel also includes one of Okuma's Extreme Element Bearings, made with double shielded stainless steel and high density ceramic balls.

Features of Okuma VSystem Spinning Reels include:

  • DFD: Precision Dual Force Drag system
  • Multi-disk Japanese oiled felt drag washers
  • Up to 15 stainless steel ball bearings
  • E2BB and HPB corrosion resistant bearings
  • 1 Quick-Set Anti-Reverse roller bearing
  • Precision machine cut brass pinion gear
  • ALC: Rigid diecast aluminum frame and rotor
  • Patented Elliptical Oscillation System
  • Spare matching aluminum and ported spool
  • Forged aluminum Quick-Lock handle design
  • Hydro Block water tight drag seal
  • 5-Year Okuma backed warranty program

Great Reel for the money.
Pros: Easy Casting, Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: Shore Casting, Jigging, Ocean Fishing, River Fishing
Comments: I purchased two Okuma V Series Reels this past fishing season and am quite pleased with both. I use an Okuma V55 on a 10' Carolina Cast Pro rod with 20# braid. This combo casts 1-3 oz metal lures out of sight. Have landed striped bass up to 20# in the Cape Cod Canal's current with no problems at all. The Okuma V85 is mounted on a Carolina Cast Pro 12' rod. Spooled with 50# braid this is an awsome combo for casting and jigging lures in the 2-7 oz range. This reel has easily handled striped bass over 30#, again in the strong Cape Cod Canal current and from the surf. I would highly reccomend the Okuma V Series reels to anyone. They are reasonably priced, have a very smooth drag, smooth reeling. Reels balance very well. Have not had one single problem with either reel.

 one more chance!
Pros: Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling, Smooth Drag System
Cons: Poor Construction
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: a screw came loose under the rotor after fighting a 25lb king and rendered the reel useless because it wedged itself and caused the rotor to lock-up. as far as i can see the screw was merely cosmetic and should be eliminated. also the spool bent as is does not sit securely on the spindle. i'm not impressed with the rigidity of the reel. unfortunately the 16 bearings are spinning a flimsy spool system which could easily be redesigned and strengthened. i'm having it repaired and i will give it a second chance but the flimsy spool leaves a bad taste in my mouth. make you stuff stronger Okuma! fisherman need ultra reliable stuff especially for the money we spend.

Nasty reel
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: Shore Casting
Comments: I had used this reel with PowerPro 20lb braid for 7 days about 4 hrs each and it was reel I've ever owned. On the 8th day, 3rd cast, the bail locked and could only be retrieved by manually turning the bail. Once freed up, I'd get about 3 cranks and it would lock again. For [$] and 16 bearings, it should stand this simple task. This reel has been sent back to the manufacturer and has been there for about a month. I hope I get it back and that I don't encounter this disappointment a second time. I would not recommend this reel to anyone just yet.
