Details

Okuma Cold Water Line Counter Reels feature corrosion resistant frame and side plates. The Cold Water series from Okuma sport quality external components including, an aluminum spool engage lever, ratcheting aluminum star drag, a titanium coated wide-mouth levelwind, machined aluminum spool and a stamped aluminum power handle featuring an ergonomic non-slip rubber grip. The Okuma Cold Water Line Counter Reels also feature quality internal components such as; heavy-duty machine cut brass gears, dual anti-reverse system and a full Carbonite drag system. The internal components are held solidly in place with the Okuma MSS (Mechanical Stabilization System), a one-piece hold plate that assures long term alignment of the gears and shafts.


Cold Water Line Counter Reels have two ball bearings and one one-way roller bearing. They also feature a custom designed linecounter. The first major upgrade in the line counter is a recessed reset button on the right side that virtually eliminates errant and unwanted reset of the line counter. The second major upgrade to the line counter is Okuma's two stage anti-fogging Clear View Technology (CVT). The interior of the linecounter window has been treated with anti-fogging agents to prevent condensation build up. If the linecounter should be overwhelmed with condensation, there is a left side access port that allows the water to be removed and dried out completely.


  • Beautiful machined aluminum spool
  • Okuma's "QuickSet" infinite anti-reverse one-way bearing
  • Precision cut, heavy-duty brass gears
  • Corrosion resistant frame and side-plates
  • Titanium coated level wind
  • Oversized, super smooth, multi-disk Carbonite drag system
  • Ergonomic stamped aluminum power handle with oversized, comfortable knob

Nice reel

by -

I have okuma convectors. I like the line counters on the cold water better. One of the reels I got the drag was a little sticky but seems to be getting better.

Disappointed

by

Bought 4 with the idea that I was going to switch out all my reels over the season. On my FIRST outing 2 failed to accurately count the line in...confirmed the failure when I later put them on a 100 foot tape to calibrate...I liked the way they looked and felt...like the drag...but if the line counter isn't accuate...what's the point...totally disappointed

Not Impressed

by -

Bought 4 of these reels hoping to use them as Dipsy Diver reels fishing salmon on Lake Michigan. They Did not work well at all. The drags were very inconsistent and the line will creep unless the drag is tightened beyond a reasonable setting. They do look and feel nice and may be good for other types or applications, but not for Dipsys.

cw153d

by

the cw153d reel is awesome! I have over 200 yrds of 50lb power pro braid line on a okuma 10'6'' plunking rod. the drag works smooth from steelhead and salmon to sturgeon in the pacific north west!! the new cw's are very comparable to shimano's tekotas but less expensive(both are great reels though).

CW 303C model

by -

I purchased five CW 303C last summer, best reels I've ever used, and I've used a lot of difference reels. Set two up for dipsy divers and three with wire. Everyone that fish with me really like them. John

Not many stores sell this reel

by -

For the price this reel is worth the money. Much nicer reel then expected. Heavy duty compared to the cheaper Okuma model reels of this size and counter model. Great for trolling or drifting when casting short distance or trolling.

Great reel for the money

by -

I own 16 of these reels and have caught just about everything on them including walleye,lake trout,steelhead, and even coho and Chinook salmon. Reels look great and have a smooth drag system.

A lot or reel for your money - recommended!

by

I have one of these (200 series) which I ended up spooling lead core line on, it works great for Lake Trout trolling. You would probably want to go up to at least the 300 series if you are after Chinooks. The quality of the finish and workmanship is really fine considering its economical price. The drag on mine is very positively adjustable, smooth and easily adjustable while you are in a fish fight. The line counter may not indicate line out in exact feet but so what?, it provides a precise reference number for your next drop - very useful. Nice looking reel and excellent value for money.

Okuma Cold Water Reels for Catfish.......ooooh yeah!!!!

by

I first used the Okuma cold water 303 DLX last year on 2 of my BnM 8 foot Silver Cats and was pleasently surprised by the handling and yes castability that the reel presented. This year I purchased my third reel and placed it on my new TWC Extreme rod and BAMM.........it handled a 36 pound blue cat from the Illinois River just 1 day ago. A smaller reel, but sturdy and smooth in the fight. Before you jump on and tell me how much the reel is NOT A CATFISH REEL......yeah I know but I always try different reel and rod combinations.......and this one worked for me. So bash Okuma if you will, but so far the Okuma Cold Water line has more than held its own against my bigger reels and yes.....bigger cats.

Okuma Coldwater Reels

by -

I now own four of these and use them on Lake Erie exclusively for walleye. Great reel, good price, good performance

Stick with the Magda Pro

by

I have run Okuma Magda Pro's for years and purchased a Cold Water reel at the beginning of the 2018 Walleye Season. This reel was fine for use with Planers or Downriggers however it does not work well with Dipsys. The drag system does not handle the stress of the dipsys. I must say it has a very smooth retrieve. Save your money and run the Magda Pro's as they are cheaper, more versatile, and durable. With an improved drag system this would be a great reel.
