    The reel feel s great in your hands it has a lot of line capacity. When I'm reeling in it has a lot of cranking power it has the oversized handle and a great drag system for fighting the fish. The downside of this reel is that the clicker will not hold in the swifter water I fish the Mississippi, and find often that it doesn't hold in there, where some of the cheaper reels I have do. The spool drag is not very good either, when I throw heavier weights I use a lot of thumb. Again the cheaper reels I have don't require this. I have 2 of these and one has already required service after about 10 uses But the boys at Okuma where happy to fix it for free.

    Glad to hear okuma stands behind their stuff. If your wanting to hold in current and still use your clicker Id recommend a lever drag reel. You will have to use your thumb though because they dont have a cast break. One thing i dont know if you tried is tighting up your cast break (spool drag) with your clicker on it will help but you have to reajust alot.
