Okuma 20 cs bearing scream
when casting this reel with my mti zero 250
I get what i would descried as bearing scream when I punch 6oz in anger is this a limitation of a cheaper reel and its bearings or will this still happen on higher end gear.

the scream happens about half way to the point of curve when spindle is spinning at max

Hi Graylinghunter,

Not had much experience with the Okumas, but suggest a good clean out and re-oil the bearings, had a similar problem with a Slosh last week , but cured it by doing the above.

They were a bit neglected, and the last time I used them was at Perch Rock, when the Sierra Winds were blowing the sand all over.
