I have been using Okuma spinning reels for a few years now. They are fantastic. Yes, they are a bit heavier than alot of other reels but I have no problem balancing them with rods. They have by far, the smoothest drags I have ever used.

I too have a couple. Really like how smooth they are. They are the high quality end of the brand. Really like them.

Last fall I went thru about a dozen different products that Dave sells and he totally destroyed the big boys prices...both Cabelas and Bass Pro! I know where I will be shopping.
