WORK­HORSE REELS PROVED THEIR WORTH

Sport Fishing - - FEATURES -

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.
