30b - Light reel, works good so far   (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth drag, Good Value, durable
Cons: Poor tolerances.
Best Uses: Estuary and river fishing, Salt water light tackle
Comments: I've been wanting something inexpensive for the kids and myself to use at the local lake and occassional light pier fishing in the Puget Sound. The generally good reviews and the deal for the free Okuma hoody sealed the deal. Now to the actual reel, comparing this with my old Shimano Sienna 4000 FB at about the same price point, this reel is neither smooth or precise, but it is considerably lighter and after a little break-in did seem to smoothen out a little. There is an annoying resistance in the gear on every rotation. There is a bit of play between the handle and the gears inside, so tolerances are not great. Rotor is off balance when spinning fast, but in real life you likely won't spin it that fast. Drag is very smooth for a felt disks. May upgrade to carbontex in the future. Overall, not a bad reel for general use at the price point. There are smoother reels at the same price point, but materials used in this reel should last.

Great Value! (from prior model)
Pros: durable, smooth, underpriced, tough
Best Uses: trout, panfish, Ice fishing
Comments: I bought my AV-10B because it was priced so low I could not pass it up. I didn't need it and thought I'd use it as a backup to my more expensive ultralights. I treated it poorly and used it for ice fishing. By the time spring arrived, it had convinced me to try it for stream trout. This little reel outperformed all my other small reels and has become my go-to. I keep 2 rods in my trunk everyday for shorefishing, one light rod for panfish/trout, and one med-heavy for pike/bass/cats/etc. This reel has won me over so much that last summer, I just carried this one reel with 2 spools for the 2 rods. Mine has endured some poor treatment and minimal maintenance for 3 seasons and still performs like new. I'm very impresed.

Tremendous value! (from prior model)
Pros: durable, Smooth, nice drag, well sealed, light
Best Uses: Ice fishing, panfish, trout
Comments: I bought an AV-10B at a "I-don't-need-it-but-it's-too-cheap-to-pass-up" price. I figured it would make a good backup for my more expensive ultralights and I put it to use on an ice rod. I really treat my ice fishing gear poorly, so it should've been in bad shape by spring, but to my surprise, it outperformed my other ultralights and became my go-to reel for stream trout and panfish. I like it so much, I filled my second spool with 8lb last summer and used it on both the panfish and the bass/pike rods that stay with me everyday in my trunk for shorefishing. I've left it in a bucket of slime, dropped it in sand, accidentally used to to break my fall on the way down a hill... After 3 years of true abuse, it still feels new and way outperforms it's pricepoint. GREAT REEL!

Great ice reel   (from prior model)
Pros: Super balanced
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: I purchased this avenger 10b with intent to try on ice. I mainly fish for walleye and it did hold up to the test. The larger handle made it very easy to use with or without gloves. The 6 ball bearings held up very well in the cold and the drag worked flawless as well with no surges. I will be swapping out my entire ice force with okuma avengers this season.

Okuma Avenger Spin Reel   (from prior model)
Pros: All the same pros as my first review
Cons: none so far.
Best Uses:
Comments: Purchased my first Okuma Avenger Reel while pier fishing on the North Carolina coast. Was using my regular smaller spin reels that I use for inland bass fishing. These smaller reels work great for bass fishing, but were not heavy enough for the pier fishing. Decided to get a larger reel and purchased the Okuma Avenger. I fished 2 days on the pier using this new Okuma Avenger and was well satisfied. I caught numereous small fish and landed 2 drum both measuring 21 inches each. Had no problem working and landing these 2 larger fish ... was fun and exciting. This Okuma Avenger Reel was the ticket for pier fishing. I came home and ordered 3 more Okuma Avenger Spin Reels just for my next trip to the coast for pier/surf fishing.

Pros: Good Value, Smooth, Solid
Cons: None so far.
Best Uses:
Comments: Bought one of these reels while on the coast of NC doing some pier fishing. Used it for 2 days on the pier ... loved it for pier fishing!!! Do a lot of inland bass fishing and the spinning gear that I use for bass fishing was just too small for the job on the pier. I thought so much of this reel that I ordered three more just for pier/surf fishing at the coast. Will know more about these reels with my next visit to the coast ... looking forward to using them then.

Love this Reel!   (from prior model)
Pros: Level line wind, Small size, Solid construction, Smooth drag, Compact bail, Price is excellent
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: I waited eagerly quite a while for this smallest of the Avenger series (AV-10b). I have not been disappointed. This reel is great. I use it primarily for ice fishing. The size is just right for my 24-26" ultra-light perch rods. It is smooth and precise. Solid anti-reverse. It just has a nice feel to it. Too bad ice season is ending soon. I want to use it more.

Okuma Avenger "A" Series reel   (from prior model)
Pros: Price, guality very light, smooooth
Best Uses: Salt wather /fresh 8-10 pound test line
Comments: I have been using these reels for three years. I do use them alot at least once a week and have used these reels to catch some big fish 20-25 pounds on light test line. They are smooth even being used in salt water and have reasonalble drags. The finish will wearout but they still work fine. I have owned several HIGH DOLLAR but ,those reels now stay home. For what you pay to have a reel professionally cleaned one time you can buy one of these reels. Very good reel for the money and if sometime down the road they stop working I will save the parts and pull out a new one, I bought a half dozen for reserve , thats how much I think of these reels, you can't go wrong.!!!

Pros: Durable, Great Price. Great Drag
Best Uses: bass. caught a musky with it.
Comments: I bought one of these reels at a local sporting goods store for $30.00 about 3 years ago. I just bought eight more at $19.95. Does that tell you something? It is a GREAT inexpensive reel that you can just leave in the back of your truck. I really do love a reel that's somewhat light and I can beat the crap out of it.

Best spinning reel for value   (from prior model)
Pros: 6 ball bearing, Smooth Drag System, super low price
Comments: I have been fishing Redfish with junk reels which is a difficult. I also have a Penn 360 Slammer which is primo but a bit oversized for inshore and cost 5 times as much. I downsized to the Avenger 30a with 20# braid on a 5'-6 medium action rod. The fight is teriffic compared to just winching the fish in. The 6 ball bearings and really smooth drag system have added sport to fishing.

High quality low cost reel   (from prior model)
Pros: Affordable;Sturdy;High Quality
Best Uses: Medium Action Spinning
Comments: Bang for the buck. As soon as I got it, I used the 30a to catch my personal best largemouth at a lake in Southern California. The drag works excellent and the spinning action on the reel is incredibly smooth. Next, I took the 30a out to Hawaii and caught several Ulua (Papio) on shrimp. Those fish fight hard and the reel did a great job of handling the fish.

Comments: I fish from kayaks in salt inshore or shorleline areas, catching large stripers and blues. I love to do this on such light tackle as the Avenger 30, because these reels meet the challenge, and for the price, who cares if it lasts me about two years or so?? I've bought Stradics and other more expensive reels, and MAYBE they last longer .. maybe not. These reels are great and cost a bit more than the line I put on them. Super value!! I always keep a couple new ones around.

Pros: Smooth Drag System, Line Doesn't Tangle, Reliable, Smooth Reeling, Durable, Easy Casting
Best Uses: Jigging, Shore Casting, Ocean Fishing
Comments: I surf cast along the mid California coast and this reel has worked great on my 10 foot Custom Striker grafite pole with both bait and jigs from 3 oz. up to 12 oz. that I have used. I have had no problems after trying it out over several weekends off the shore and with a lighter rod on two costal rivers. The extra plastic bail really came in handy when I went up a river from the beach and needed to change to a lighter test line. The reel is smooth and dependable and holds enough line to make those long casts out past the breakers with out having to go out to far. This is the first Okuma product I have purchased and will buy more considering the exelent quality.

Cons: Difficult To Reel, Difficult To Cast, Twists Line, Tangles Line
Comments: I was looking forward to using this reel, but was soon disappointed when I tried it out. The line dragged too much when casting and it was difficult to get any distance even with a heavier lure. It was difficult to reel and release the bail, and the line was constantly getting tangled and twisted. The reel was also too heavy for my liking. It was very frustrating fishing with it.
