I have been using them this spring and I like them for the money. I own 4 of them but the quality control on them is not so good. I caught two stripers and the handle fell off. Also the first two I purchased the drag does not adjust down enough for my taste but the other two would stop a truck. I called Okuma and they gave me a return authorization number and they are going back. I hope they will fix or replace to my satisfaction. I quess you have to expect some problems with a Larger arbor reel for under $80.

Vic -

Since you are from Seattle, the best place to check is Outdoor Emporium downtown off Denny Wy. Can't remember the exact address but others may chime in from the Emerald City, home of kickass baseball ;D

You will find many many good deals there if you haven't already been there you should check it out.
