Reviewer: Bret

I currently own 3 EB65's and 3 EB30's. These reels get serious use several times a week. Okuma's drag system is second to none, and for the price, these reels cannot be beat.

With the EB65's, I fish at 120 yards with zero problems with line knots or casting performance.

The EB30's are my current all-use spinning reels. With a minimum of 50 hours a week in some fairly harsh environments (all freshwater) these reels see it all. From white bass and hybrids, to carp, buffalo and gar. As with the 65's the Epixor drag system is flawless.

I've used these side by side with Shimano 4000 baitrunners (at almost 2X the price) and I'll buy the Okumas every time.

The only issue I've found with these reels is that the finish is fairly easy to scratch or chip.

I have the Okuma MD30. I like it because it is extreemly smooth when winding in, It is light weight, the drag system is easy to find and adjust during the fight. I use my reel in a very harsh surf environment once a week for the past year and a half. Best of all the service from the factory is top notch. I screwed up my bail, Okuma took it back, fixed it and sent it back to me with an extra spool, free of charge for everything. Thats great service.
