Don't know about Okuma fixed spools but in their multiplier range it looks like this:
The cheap ones are **** but the dearer ones can be quite good.
I have a couple of their Titus reels and I am very happy with them but a friend of mine has one that only cost a few quid less and it isn't worth half what he paid for it and I doubt it will land a double figure fish without the clutch giving up.
ya sure it will be late monday evening when I let you know what I have as I am working untill 8am-hate working nights over a bank holiday weekend-everyone is drinkin/fishing and me stuck at work,as they say thats life!!
I use an Okuma Axeon, (think it's top of the range model), only been fishing with it for a few months, no probs, feels like a very solid reel, (and very smooth) I got it as part of a rod and reel deal so not sure of exact price. Seems to me it would handle almost anything. Hope this helps,
thanks guys, i have been looking at those reels also, at the moment i am not near the sea ( as per my user name) but am back in the uk soon so will have a good look around the shops and see what i can narrow it down to.
axeon i paid 69.99, aerlex i paid 50quid, axeon has a spare spool, aerlex doesnt, both quality reels thow, bluebeard mentioned emcast,ilike the lookofthat one also, but havent got 1 as yet. maybe when she,s not looking, mmmmmmmm?
One of my reels is a Beachcaster Pro Edition 380 (Okuma) Two years old Casts 2-6 ozs no problems. No corrosion. Seems quite tough and good value. It was reviewed in Sea Angler along with a Ron Thompson beachcaster about two perhaps 3 years ago. The review impressed me so I bought both! No regrets!
