Anyone use Okuma Convectors or Daiwa Sealines?

    I know that they're used for trolling for salmon but I wondered how they worked for cats. I have a couple buddies who are selling about 4 of them each. I own a Penn 209 and an Abu Garcia 7000. As long as it can perform like the Penn I'm content

    I had one of the Okumas. They're definitely a trolling reel, the one I had didn't cast worth a dang. If you're used to casting Abus or Penns I think you'll be disapointed in the Convector if you have to cast very far. Other than that, they're a good, heavy duty reel. Good Luck~
