I purchased this okuma SD 45L reel from CatfishConnection, it is the sorriest excuse for a reel I have ever seen. I should have got a tidewater instead. This reel is really garbage. One thing is the flip forward to cast thing...garbaga (tidewater has it too) next thing is line out alarm, when its on you gotta flip the line out switch instead of turning handle, other thing is the casting, i tightened up the bolt so my 3 oz sinker wouldnt fly to the floor and the stupid thing broke. I have had so much trouble with this. DO NOT BUY THE SD45L. It should be recalled. It is garbage and I hate it! I will never buy an Okuma product for as long as I live, I swear on everything I wont.
