I just bought my wife a new Convector CL45 Reel and it is awesome.
We haven't had the chance to get it out and try it yet but hopefully by next weekend we can catch some nice cats with it.
Here's some pics of the rod and reel. The Rod was custom made by one of our own members (Coloman). The rod is going to be put to good use once we get to the Catfish Expo 2009. :big_smile

Just a heads up. Not more than a month ago I tossed one of them reels in the James river. I had it for only 2 years with no abuse to it at all. Had one hell of a screamin run and it just flat out took a crap in the middle of the hook set. OH WELL! LOL!:crazy:

You should have sent it to me BG,....lol
I would have taken it and fixed it.
The one I bought for the wife has a good warranty and I purchased an extended warranty from Okuma for 3 yrs. It was only $12.00 for 3 yrs.

Great looking reels. I'm glad to hear you speak highly of them. I like Okuma reels and have several but all are spinning models. I've been looking at the Convectors in magazines and on line but don't see whether or not they have bait clickers. Do they have bait clickers? If so, I'm buying a couple. Thanks for any advice.

Some of them do, the Convector does have a bait clicker on it.
I like it....feels like a good reel and has good smooth drag system also.
