Comments: Good casting reel. I let my brother used it once and he said it has a pretty smooth cast. He uses a lot of Quantum bait caster.

From: Hero: Milwaukee, WI

Comments: LOve it , ive bought couple different reels past month lews and ardents and this blows them out of water . Ive had the ardent edge pro for month and its already getting sent back with some feed back . the lews seems to be ok but been having problems with bearings . ive yet to have a problem with okuma and will def be spending more money with them .

From: Greg: Duquoin,IL

Comments: I purchased the Okuma Krios about a year ago. Iâ•ÂË™ve fished with it several time since and caught small and largemouth bass along with a few Northern Pikes. Considering the Krios usually sells for $109.99 and can usually be acquired for less, it an extremely solid performer of incredible value. Itâ•ÂË™s a smooth casting reel and extremely easy to adjust with the dual casting brake system. It has solid and relatively smooth feeling retrieve and the drag is impressively smooth. This reel is very ergonomic and works very well with my smaller sized hands; I have no problems palming the reel for extended periods of time.  This reel has really impressed me, itâ•ÂË™s the best baitcaster Iâ•ÂË™ve had the pleasure to own and use in the $80-$160 price range. The only downside I can see with this reel is that it is only offered with a 7.3:1 retrieve ratio, if Okuma would produce a 5.4:1 and/or even a 6.2:1 ratio version of this reel and maintain the price point, they would have an extremely good entry level, value packed baitcaster.

Comments: Man all I have to say is wow I caught 15bass in 1hour with this reel it was pair with a abugarcia white rod 7.6 medium heavy it pulled them out the water like nothing get one in fast its cast a mile with no backlash at all good for crankbaiting kvd 2.5

From: bassmaster: Columbia, SC 

Comments: Awesome reel! don't even think about it just get it.  Works and feels great for its price.

From: Hmong: Milwaukee, WI

Comments: this reel is a thing of beauty....i have mine paired up w/ the AG Veritas too...white on white and man its beautiful....works great w/ frogging, pitching, and even punching....its a great buy for 100....i say get it....and happy fishing

From: Gary: Milwaukee, WI

Comments: this reel sucks!!! didnt even last me three months.

From: Yeng: OK

Comments: Did anyone else have problems with the drag? I purchased this reel and once I started setting the drag the handle became real loose! I was looking forward to owning this reel but after you burn me once it's hard for me to try it again.

From: Derek: USA

Comments: Don't listen to the bad reviews about this reels quality for the $$! Any body who isn't impressed with this reel probably only has reels that are $300 and more. I am 14 and do tournaments and this gets the job done. With some effort I can launch 3/8 oz jigs at least 40 yards. Also this reel is almost impossible to backlash. Best flipping and jig n creature reels around for the $$. I give this reel a rating of 10 out of 10. Good fishin.

From: Jeff the bass king: U.S.

Comments: Everyone is saying this reel doesn't cast good and this and that... This reel is obviously made for heavy cover fishing like flipping and pitching. It's made for heavy braided lines, its got a low line capacity because you don't need that much to flip, it's got a high gear ratio to bring those fish in fast when flipping or pitching, and it's got a relatively low amount of bearings like the curado.

From: Andrew

Comments: i just got this reel and its not bad for 105 bucks. i just threw it around the backyard and was impressed with it.  its comfortable and smooth. i would buy it again

From: Andy: IL

Comments: I found this reel for 85 free shipping brand new it's a good reel definitely not worth 105 should be 80 at the most ur paying for the looks but it casts fine with heavier baits it's comfortable and the drag is pretty nice but for a 100 bucks get lews I absolutely love that reel but if u want a reel to look really good and work about 7 maybe 8 out of ten get the krios

From: Doug: Marrero, LA

Comments: Well for a 100 bucks, not bad....was expecting alittle more distance with my micro veritas...seems i can't get past 6 on magnets....it's not a Pro-Qualifier but it does look dead sexy on the veritas.   Overall its better than a skeet.  I agree with Duke, if the price was 75 bucks they would be on to something.

From: Shane

Comments: Well, it's not a precise piece like the Calcutta that I own but it doesn't have a $200 price tag  either.  However, it's a nice lite reel with dual braking for a decent price.  It's very much like the Alumina 273 reel with a shiny pearl white color.  Not a bad reel for around $75  with many nice features.  

From: Duke: Radcliff, KY

Comments: any more reviews on this? i want to buy a few but im waiting on the reviews from us fisherman.

From: Leng

Comments: i have been waiting FOREVER for someone to make a white baitcaster that was great looking and worth its sticker price.when i saw the new shimano chrono. come out i was extatic,but then i saw what shimano did (make a white curado with a chrono name badge on it,then jack up the price) and i was a little miffed and said no go.then i found this beauty,i cant wait for this reel to arive and become available cause this thing looks dead sexy.and for $100 im not afraid to purchase it,sure i know it wont be some highend gem of a reel at a great price,but i have some okuma spinning reels and they are perfect,plus okuma has stepped up theyre game alot over the past years,if its anything like the lews speed baitcaster that sells for $80 and performs like it costed $200 id be 100% happy.and if it turns out to be a bad buy and a heap of crap,well then ehh ill toss it to my son who can inturn beat the crap out of it and drive it to its grave.but im hoping it performs as good as it looks.cant wait.
