Trio spinning reels from Okuma offer a unique crossover construction. The solid one-piece stamped aluminum reel stern and rotor arm are paired with lightweight graphite side plates, providing strength where needed and weight savings where possible. The spool construction houses the drags system in an aluminum drag chamber for added stability and smoothness.

ALTHOUGH, the screws on the gear housing strip very easily! Maintaining your reel is a must for every fisherman, especially if you want it to last. Maintaining a fishing reel consists of cleaning the reel after every use and every so often, open it up and clean/grease all the gears. So be careful when opening the gear housing, the screws are easily stripped.
Other than the screws, the reel is very excellent. The reel is flashy, fast, EXCELLENT drag on this reel (it can be set very light, so light that the fish doesn't even know it's hooked). It's can handle some larger fish too, I took it gar fishing to test out the drag (toughness) and it preformed perfectly, pulled in a 30lb gar with ease.
This was all done with a 30s
The product however.... Don't bother.
I ordered two and one of them ARRIVED BROKEN.
Then it was only a matter of 6 months until the second reel broke. Both broke the exact same crank rod inside the reel. These were never used on a catch greater than 5 pounds, and were cleaned after every use.
I also bought the smaller version of this reel, it lasted 3 months.
Okuma what happened?
First of all, I own other brands of reels, this is only my second Okuma reel. At this price point, you will not find a spinning reel with stronger drag. This thing has BIG drag power on it. Hooked a little redfish yesterday, and had to make sure he was still on the line a few times, it was hilarious. I have the 40s (high speed) and did not think my drag was set that tight, but boy was it. And it still had PLENTY of drag to go. I love the fact that they over-engineered it like that, because you know that it's going to last a very long time catching small to medium fish, and will handle those 20 and 30+ pounders when you need it to. I can imagine one with a larger spool size could land you a 5 or 6 ft shark.. pending you have the right leader and everything.
The smoothness of the retrieve is excellent. It's just as smooth as any other high dollar reel you will pick up, (under 200 dollars of course) and the handle nearly falls under its own weight, which is good enough for me. It doesn't require much force to reel in, and the little "roller" style handle on the high speed models is fun to use. The bail is as strong as anything you will find in the industry; it's built like a tank, nice and thick. Remind me of Penn battle. Come to think of it, if you are considering Penn battle or Fierce, and you aren't getting above a 5000 spool size (55 for Okuma) then I highly recommend the Okuma (I own a Battle 7000 as well). All Penn spinning reels, except for the Torque, are made in China. If you are going to buy a non-American spinning reel anyway, might as well get one with stronger drag, more bearings, and lighter weight, right?
The big question I bet some are asking is, "does it flex?".. being graphite and all. The gears are rock solid inside. The graphite they use is not quite as stiff as some others I've seen, but it is very thick in the right spots, and coupled with the aluminum, I don't believe there will be any durability issues. Once you feel the smoothness and power of the reel, you will see it packs the goods. You may get a little spool flex, but it's really not going to be an issue as they've engineered it to handle a LOT of drag pressure, and you aren't hooked up to a harness so it really doesn't matter. I can imagine "thumbing" the spool may not be as "nice" as an all aluminum spool, it will just give you a little more flex than all aluminum, but with the insane amount of drag you have you will never need to thumb the spool... ever. If you don't have enough drag with this reel are you seriously hooked up to something waaaay too big for your reel. Trust me. People who thumb their reels tend to use cheaper gear anyway and don't worry about drag, making this a non-issue for most people looking to buy in this price-range.
I do lots of brackish and saltwater fishing, lots of times from a kayak, and the lightweight of this spinner was super appealing, along with monster drag pressures. This was purchased as my backup reel, and now I realize it can outperform my main reel (which was a little over twice the price). If you are looking for a fun little reel with freight-train drag, and just getting into higher-end gear, this is a solid choice. Paired with redline and a Daiwa Laguna rod, you have a wicked looking and wicked powerful 100 dollar combo.
