Great reel, I have used this for over a year. The only complaint I have is that the smooth metal crank handle is slippery when your hands are wet.

I am the owner of several Baitfeeder reels. I have a 40, 50 and a 65. I initially purchased the 40 about 5 years ago and since I had excellent experience with it so I purchased the additional 50 and 65.
The quality of the reels is very good and I will continue to purchase more of them as I acquire more rods.

I have 2 of these reels and have been shopping for a new one. I was considering the avenger again but also considered reels that were more than 2x the price. I ended up coming back to the Avenger. I am by no means great with taking care of my gear however i do rinse them off after using and they still year after year tend to stand strong. I will be buying another this year for my fall striper run

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flathead Slayer good but not great
I have owned the 90 model reel for about three years. Overall this is a good reel the only problem I have ever had with it is the bait feeder will not engage fully if the crank handle is in the back position. It is easy to tell when it does not fully engage because the lever does not click in to place. other than that it is a great reel. Smooth drag release and adjustable bait feeder drag that is great for fishing in strong current. I have caught many 20 lb. + catfish with this reel and it still works like a charm.

This is my third Okuma Avenger reel. I've had several stripers on this year and these reels work the way you want them too. Smooth release on the bait-feeder then positive stop when the brake is applied.

Love this reel. Great quality for your money. My friend has had this reel for the past 6 years and turned me on to it. I'm extremely happy

Have fished for thirty years. Seen good reels and bad. This Okuma 90 is middle of the road. Bail return spring broke on third use. Had to take reel apart and fix spring. This on only the third time out with the "new" reel. Fixed myself instead of returning as didn't want to bother with waiting to order
