I had two of these for a while and have fished with a couple of more. They are perfectly acceptable reels for most of what I would want them for. They are certainly one the best looking reels out there and they do come in a left hand version. Something that the Shimano's do not. Probably really 3.5 stars for me. I mainly use this type of reel for either salmon or stripers. The thing that keeps me from rating it higher was I was not totally impressed by it's drag. I feel the Diawa Sealine is a better reel for a lower price. The Shimano Tekota is a much better reel for not a huge amount more money. One thing I hate is that the clicker is too loud and is loud even when it is not engaged.
This is actually my 2nd Okuma trio spinning reel. I was so impressed with the first one, I bought the second one- going a size larger. I have used all kinds of spinning reels over the past 50 years of fishing and yes- high end reels too. This reel is hands down, the smoothest, most durable and reliable reel I have ever used. From trout to lunker catfish. AND- you can't beat the price here on Overstock.
