Rated 4 out of 5 by east coast striped bass Very Lite weight overall great real
Love this real Lite weight paired it up with a 9ft st croix bass mojo pole the two together are awesome feather lite very easy to handle caught several blues and some schooly bass on it handles very well only issue i have had so far is i used it 4 times caught fish every time but when using 30lb braided line it got stuck on a small piece of the bail housing and snapped my line sux loosing $20 in power pro braid i will try again another spool but if happens again this real will have to go and swap out for penn battle

I purchased this reel two weeks ago for a trip to the Keys. I paired it up with a medium weight Ugly Stick, and the combo handled everything the ocean threw at it. The reel had no problem with braided line, and the drag was smooth. I caught several Dolphin "Peanuts", Jacks and Snapper with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sparty Trio 30s Great Reel
I was looking for nice light weight reel I could use all day , and under 100.00$ I got that and more. Extremely smooth retrieve and the drag is equally as smooth and powerfull. The true test was 25" yellow tail jack with several 50 to 75 yard runs I figured the the drag system would give up, never faded and that was only the first of 5 more the same day.this my new favoriteThe best bang for you buck out there!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonder Very good reel
Just got this baby out in the water and handled very good! Very good reel performed well on reds and snooks. Got a 40 and works great with my redbone rod. Just some FYI need to oil the reel first before your first outing. Can't wait to get the new bait caster version for this reel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by David Malta GEARS BROKE ON SECOND USE!
I am normally a Shimano man! However this one time I said lets give it a shot with an okuma, "same price as the shimano exage spining reel" the only difference here is that Okuma have 9 BB and Shimano, 4 BB....surely Okuma is better!!!...The okuma gears shot on my second time using it and never caught a fish. I was casting a 5.3 ounce lure out! To be nice here, Okuma Trio is rubbish! Like I said....being nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Reece This is a good reel.
The reel seems pretty tough, I use braided line so it's bail system will sometimes catch the line but for the most part works fine. The drag system is a little hard to get use to but I just hand test it I don't use the pro method. I have two of these reels now and use them 2 or 3 times a week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Buck10 I would buy this reel again.
The bail on this reel is a little stiff. I use 20 lb braided line and it will sometimes catch on the bail. It is pretty smooth with big fish on and the drag works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by will wouldn't buy
This the worst reel of the 3 I have. I have returned it twice now. The first two reels broke on the inside. I will never buy this product again.
