Okuma Cold Water Line Counter Reel
Okuma Cold Water Line Counter Reel Models
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.

Ratings & Reviews
I've used these reals on Lake Erie walleye for 6 years now. Keep adding as i git rid of my old brand of reel. Plenty of smooth drag, and power handle to take of any size Walleye.
Okuma cold water Line counter CW-153D
These reels are perfect for trolling walleyes!
I have seen reviews from others on several sites saying they had issues.
I have not had a single problem with any i have bought over the last 2 years. So i am more likely to assume that the problems are operator errors.
ordered two, one of the boxes had clearly been opened and when I got on the water that reel was not functioning properly compared to the other. Disappointed in this purchase. will not order again.
Level Wind Seizes
by Big Dave
I have 10 of these. I like the feel, the drag and the price. I use them for both Walleye and Salmon. The biggest problem seems to be the level wind. Had 2 of the level winds seize.
Stick with the Magda Pro
by Blue Line Fishing
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.
