Good reel but not good for backlashes   (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Durable, Smooth Reeling
Cons: Backlash line goes inside
Best Uses: Jigging, Ocean Fishing, Trolling
Comments: I really enjoy this reel so much that I ordered a second reel but finally had the backlash problems and in two cases my 17# test line got inside the reel that is enclosed on the right hand side and I had to spend a lot of time to get it out. I think there is too much clearance space that allows the line to get twisted inside the reel.

Line counter is not accurate.   (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Reliable, Smooth Drag System, Durable, Line Doesn't Tangle
Best Uses: Trolling
Comments: When letting out line the footage count on the counter depended on how much line was stored on the reel. The counter worked on the revulation of the reel(less line on reel more revulation, higher footage count, more line on reel less revulation lower footage). Noway of knowing accurately how many feet of line you were letting out.

Okuma Magda Pro DX   (from prior model)
Pros: Good price value, Reliable, Durable, Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: Trolling
Comments: I have two Okuma Magda Pro Ma 15DX reels. I use these reels primarily when trolling crank baits and when using planner boards. I have the reels spooled up with 10lb. test mono. Primarily I'm fishing for Walleye. So far the drag has worked well and the reel is nice and smooth. Quality of the reels look as good to me as the Diawa, if not better. The line counter seems accurate. So far I have no complaints. For the money I would recommend the Okuma Magda pro.

My new favorite reel   (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth clicker too, Smooth Reeling, Line Doesn't Tangle
Best Uses: Trolling, Good kokanee reel
Comments: I bought the smallest version of this series reel after reading the reviews here. I probably never would have bought this brand of reel before but am very happy I did. I was impressed right of the bat. Maybe I am strange but I love the clicker. Much less annoying and also drag is smoother than my other reels made by a more famous manufacturer in the same price range. There may be better reels out there, but you would have to pay a lot more money. If you take kids or less experienced fishermen, better to have one of these than a high priced one that decided to head for the bottom of the lake

We would not suggest using the 20DX for lead core, but if you insist you may be able to manage 3 colors with 150 yds of backing. The 30DX should hold 5 or 7 colors with 150 yds of backing.
