  1. This reel sucks! Don’t buy it. There is a major flaw in the design. Because the bottom of the spool is recessed it naturally takes your line under the spool. I am not an amateur, I am somebody who closes the bail with my hand and I put the line along the roller. It doesn’t matter whether you using 6 pound test or 12 pound test, God forbid if you put some $20 braided line on this reel. Using jerk baits while twitching slack in your line is a nightmare. I had 2 of them and I had to take the spool off every 10 casts no joke. It wraps your line up along the shaft and chews it up. The best part is that I’ve tried to contact okuma, they don’t want to get back to me. I’m amazed that this awful design was taken into full production. Did anyone put line on the Proto type and take a cast and reel it in?

  2. This is by far my favorite fresh water reel I own>>>allabout.wiki/nrdb I am going to be buying more soon. So smooth and wonderful for casting and reeling in bigger fish.
