    I have 4 Okuma reels & I absoluty love em, I have the (2) Avenger in the 55 (7 bb-6bb-1rb) & (2) Helix II (6bb-5bb-1rb) in the 40. I use my Helix II's for Steelhead fishing & man do they pull & put up a fight, biggest one landed was 18#, so far I have used the the Avengers to go after Sturgoen on the Snake River & let's just say for keepers & shakers it holds up great but for the peeler (oversized) it is a bit small, I know this because I almost lost the whole spool of braided line...thank goodness for leader snapping. I have used a buddies Alumina & let me tell you I have never felt something soooooo smooth & light, that is thier highest end spinning reel. For the $$$ I would deffinately get it, when I get my L & I case settled I intend on getting 2 or 4 of em.
