Long time needed
A low profile line counter reel has been needed in the fishing world for a long time. I prefer spinning reels for spoon jigging but not being able to know the depth of the spoon has been a problem for all of us. I use to use a black marker and mark my line every 10 feet and then count it down. Okuma has finally seen the light and built a line counter that we can jig with! I have almost a dozen Okuma line counter trolling reels so I wasn't worried about spending my money on a "new type" of reel. The quality is there , the weight is light enough to use all day and the bait clicker is louder than any of my 11 trolling reels, BUT I do have 1 fault with the design. The reel needs a "grip pad" on top of the frame for your thumb to rest on. It is very smooth and slick and palming the reel as you do when holding the reel / rod with one hand leaves you without enough control when you set the hook on a monster. I have relatively small hands and it would be possible to lose my grip and lose the reel / rod to a hard hitting fish.
Got me by surprise
Bought it not knowing if I'll like it, but it ended being a really good reel haven't had a problem with it so far, the drag works really good. It's just like the title, yellowtail,bass,tuna
