Ratings & Reviews
Ok for the price will not buy another
by Up North Doug
I bought on on a good sale at FishUSA. The reel is inexpensive. The line capacity is good. My main concern is the drag. When setting / engaging and disengaging the drag the resistance curve is not linear. There is almost no drag, until the very highest setting. My experience is the a high quality reel will have a more linear drag function.
The ultimte leadcore reel!

It's incredibly difficult to find high speed line counter reels and Okuma nailed it with this one! Have two and love mine.
Delivered on time, But ice still on the lake!
My local tackle shop which sells Okuma reels was not able to get these in the store so I looked online and FishUSA had them in stock and from the time I ordered it was at my door in 4 days. as far as the reel it feels like quality and seems smooth action, but we still have ice on the lake so cant give it the full test yet.
