    Has anyone tried the cabelas salt striker spinning reel? I ordered a combo from cabelas a whuppin stick 6' 6'' ml and a ss-30. It was 55 bucks only 10 more than buying just the reel itself. :roll_eyes:

    Anyone used one of these reels before?

    I got a larger one and they are some pretty smooth reels.
    I think they're just an Okuma with a cabela's name put on them.
    I've been using mine for 2 years mostly for channels and haven't had any problems.

    yep, they are made by okuma with the cabela's name on it, those are very smooth reels, with 10 ball bearings also a big beefy handle, i have the 65 model and it works great, nice loud clicker, very decent for the price, i have mine on an 8' MH action pole:wink:

    Just picked up the Cabelas Fall Fishing Catalog and seen them on the firtst page for $39 bucks.Its every Model They Make.Only bad thing is they don't have the Baitrunner Feature.

    I think its a Good Deal for what your getting.Its about Half Off.It looks diffrent from the one of their website(dosnt have any yellow on it).I think they just came out with a upgraded version.
