    I've just ordered an Okuma CL300L. It looked like it has a lot to offer for the price.

    Does anyone own this reel? If so, how do you like it?

    its not super smoothe but it will definatly get the job done for you. i put mine on a 9' king kat rod and for $50 got a r&r that would catch just about anything around here. the cast controll is a little rough so id suggest turning it down a little and thumbing it a little more.

    I have 6 of them and they are very tough for the money. With 4 ounces and 30 pound Berkley big game I can get 50-75 yards all day long. They are not super smooth but for the money are great reels. Biggest fish to date on one is an 84 pound blue, too many mid 30's to count. I spray them with Rem-Oil gun oil before every trip and it seems to help them out. Chris
