Over the past few years I have switched all my spinning reels over to Okuma (all but one). And now this spring I have picked up two Okuma baitcasters. I’ve only had one previously
Earlier this month I picked up a Komodo that has now become my spinnerbait/chatterbait reel. Now I just picked up a Helios - http://www.okumafishing.com/product/view/reels/baitcast-reels-low-profile/helios-2013.
It will be on my Senko rod (which is my only - for now - Okuma baitcasting rod). The reel features 9 bearing drive system (8 + 1 RB); weighs 6.3oz; internal brake system (Okuma calls in Velocity Control System); and a 3yr warranty.
Should arrive today.
Also, yesterday I received my new crappie reel (Okuma RTX spinning reel) - it replaced an older Okuma Epixor reel.
