Great reel for the money
Pros: Value, Smooth drag
Best Uses: Walleye/Trout trolling!!
Comments: Picked up 6 of these for trolling Lake Ontario spring browns and walleye. Have also used them for other walleye and lake trout applications inland. Mainly run these off planer board setups, both mast and inline, and am going to try on downriggers this year. Drag is good for the occasional spring king and hog lakers. Great buy for the money, for weekend warrior fishing use

OK Reel
Pros: price
Cons: clunky operation
Best Uses: trolling
Comments: This is an OK reel to have on hand as a cheap extra setup, but it is not user friendly for routine everyday use. I own a number of these reels, The free spool lever is very difficult to engage without fidgeting around with the spool or crank handle. Also the clicker needs to be stronger and louder. For a little bit more money, the Daiwa Accudepth is a much better reel in my opinion.

Great mono crankbait trolling reel 
Pros: Lightweight
Best Uses: Trolling
Comments: I was able to put my new Okuma reels to the test a couple weeks ago trolling for brown trout in Lake Michigan and I was very pleased with how they worked. Spooled with 16lb sunline I was able to pack 300yrds on each reel and they took a 6lb brown and a 18lb brown.

Good reel but not good for backlashes 
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.

lighting rod
Line counter is not accurate. 
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.

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 
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

Cons: Drag only average
Best Uses: Trolling
Comments: Best reel on the market for the price. You can pay a lot more and get a little better reel. But these work great, although the drag's sweet spot is somewhat sensitive. I'm a perfectionist so I'm being picky but as honest as I can. I own 12 of these reels and recommend them to anyone.

great real low price 
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Reliable, Durable
Best Uses: Trolling
Comments: I use this reel for trolling for walleyes and salmon on Little Bay de Noc. Been using them for 4 years now and they still work great. You don't need to spend 100 bucks on a reel for it to work as good as these do.

Feature rich but quality poor
Cons: Poor Construction
Best Uses: Trolling, Ocean Fishing
Comments: The reel seemed OK, and functioned nicely while it was working. However the level wind mechanism wore out after about half a dozen uses, and now Okuma won't repair it.

These reels are relatively maintenance-free but Okuma does include instructions and suggestions on annual maintenance and periodic care to insure years of trouble free use.

There is a small silver knob on the handle side of the reel that adjusts the spool tension, and the star mechanism on the handle adjusts the drag system.
