Ratings & Reviews
OK reel, not buying anymore
A decent reel, but I think it is overpriced for what you get. I run them on my dipsy rods and the drag is able to hold even with big swells. Had one lock up after only two years of use. Will not be buying anymore because I switched to Shimanos.
Be a bit cautious….
I have the low profile series Okuma reels, 354 size. Love them.
I recently purchased the same low profile series 354 in a line counter model which claimed 25lbs brake strength. I run dipsy units mainly and have two other brand reels that hold better brake pressure tho they are rated less.
First disappointment with an Okuma product rods included.
AWESOME Multi-Purpose reel!

Love these reels! I use them for trolling from my kayak AND I have used them to fish from charter boats for salmon and rockfish. Great all around reel! You cannot go wrong with these Okuma Cold Water Low Profile reels!!!
Calibrate your line counters

Bought the reel because of the counter and flippin switch, love the positive drag system. CW 354 backed with 123 ft. 20 lb. Trilene Big Game topped with 150 yds. Power Pro 20 lb. braid hit the 100 ft. mark calibrating my reels thanks to the Berkley clip on line counter and measured 100 ft. to verify. Seems this info is Top-Secret . Will see how the reels perform this season give them a 4 for now.
does it all, love it
buying again I really like these reels. For the money you can not go wrong. Very smooth and you can easily cast them and great for trolling. Have caught all kinds of fish with this and still works well. I like that I do not have to bring a whole lot of different rods with me when spending the day on the lake. I can troll and then cast and also use the counter to suspend bait just a little off the bottom when drift fishing. watching depth finder it is easy to change depth of bait as bottom changes. The counter does not seem to affect casting ranges.
