Solid reel with features found in far more expensive models

by

After using and wearing-out several Pflueger and Mitchell reels, I decided to try Okuma. I started using the Helios SX 40s for steelhead trout in Jan 2017. After handling about 100 steelhead, the reel remains smooth and tight. The finish on the reel is wearing poorly, but the "nuts & bolts" remain good as new. The performance of the reel, namely the drag, has not diminished with fairly heavy use, not only with steelhead trout but also with less vigorous species of fish such as large & smallmouth bass. The reel is far superior to any Jarden-made products in the same price range; Jarden reels with long-strand carbon fiber components, carbon fiber drag washers, etc... are far more expensive. The Helios SX is a step-up from other Okuma reels that I have used, including the Trio and RTX series of reels, but I remain uncertain whether the few upgrades to the Helios SX over the Inspira series warrants the extra cost.
