WORKHORSE REELS PROVED THEIR WORTH
The anglers on this five-day adventure used mostly these four Okuma reels (with 30- to 65-pound braid):
• Metaloid spinners (55 and 65 sizes)
• Azores spinners (55 and 65 sizes)
• Komodo SS low-profile baitcasters (450 size)
• Metaloid two-speed lever drags (511 model)
Okuma’s John Bretza used this trip to showcase this recently introduced gear, and without any smoke-blowing, I confess that I was truly impressed. These new-generation reels are far and away the best, in my opinion, to come from Okuma. Heavily tested on this trip, they proved serious, high-quality workhorses.
