Spinning Reel ?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I was thinking about adding some new equipment to my fishing supplies. I was shopping for spinning reels and saw that Dicks has 50% off on an Okuma Stratus V .Are these any good ? It's a real good price but I don't want to buy junk.

I'd agree they're made for DSG and I really wouldn't trust them . As others asked , what are you fishing for ? I've usually run Shimano but last year I branched out some and picked up a Lews speed spin and speed spool . I've got nothing but great things to say about them so far . They came in just before my Champlain trip and they performed wonderfully through some giant smallmouth and good size  northern pike . They're super smooth with great drag systems . I've put them through hell this year so far catching some great size largemouth locally and I'm still really not missing my shimanos yet they haven't come out once , I'm finding myself grabbing the rods set up with the Lews .

While I seldom spin fish these days, I was always a Shimano for freshwater and Penn for saltwater guy myself.  I still own every spin reel I ever bought with many going back to the 70s and all still in great working order.  A new bail spring here and there, but that's about it.  And I own some Shimano baitcasters as well.  Calcuttas.
