    Has anyone tried out or own the Okuma rtx 65 or 80? The stats look great as well as cost. But I've only seen it online not in any shops. I'm looking for a new backup reel I use a Shimano gosa 10k as my go to and mainly fish the ditch.

    I already have a shimano baitrunner 8000D and love it to death but we all know they are pricey. So I'm looking to try out one of the Okuma baitfeeders for my 2nd pole, since I notice I miss a lot of runs by not getting there in time. The Avenger ABF Graphite Baitfeeder was my 1st choice, then...

    We always complain about bad service, so I thought I would tell you about some great service. I recently bought an Okuma Trio 30s spinning reel. 2nd time out using it, idiot that I am, I spun the drag knob all of the way off and of course it fell into the water, maybe 80 feet deep. Just wanting...
  6. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I was thinking of picking up a baitrunner reel for Striper season. I have priced a few, and the Okuma reels are around $100 cheaper than the Shimano. Since you usually get what you pay for, I was looking for some feedback from anyone who has either of these reels, preferrably someone who has...

    I have 2 20D reels I like them they are smooth as silk but both reels when cranking it in it is loosening the drag to the point where there is no drag at all. I am not sure what is happening here but I could use some help if any one knows thank you
  9. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I bought an Okuma Epixor EB50. I got a smoking deal on it so I figured what the heck. Got it home and gave it a once over, checked it out and all was good. Well. Things ended badly. 5 hours into my first morning out with it, all of a sudden there's tons of vibration and stuttering while reeling...

    I'm looking to get a new to me anyway Spinning reel. I like the Baitfeeder/Runner setups and am torn between the two. One bonus to me with the Okuma is weight being 5 to 10 oz.lighter depending on model. I also hear the Okuma drags can't be beat but Shimano is also a tried and proven product...

  14. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I purchased this reel last week for low $'s. I try not to let a bargain go by, if I can. So, I spooled the reel with 50# flo. yellow braid. The cap. is 230 of 14# mono. So I'm good with that line cap. I broke down the reel, and cleaned and oiled the bearings with valve oil, super light stuff...

  16. Tackle Evaluation & Product review
    Anyone have any input on this reel? I'm gonna have a boat for striper fishing this spring and was thinking that a reel with a counter would be useful for trolling or jigging. It would be my first baitcasting reel also so the less complicated the better. I have two Okuma spinning reels I use for...
