Good morning Guys

Is anyone using this reel and if you are, how does it perform.
Can anyone tell me if this reel in 4000 size will be suitable to pair with a 10ft Loomis Archipelago to spin from shore for Garrick and Kob.
Will this reel handle these fish.
Will use 20lb braid
The price is around R 1200.00
Thanks

There is a nice write up on the reel (albeit the smaller 2500) on http://www.tackletour.com/reviewokumaitxspinning.html. Looks like a nice reel!

Thanks, seems in S.A we only have the started 4000 size with a ratio of 5:0:1.
Will this be enough and also will the 10kg drag be sufficient?

Good afternoon Guys


Just a simple post, I checked with the Okuma Agent as it is a light setup spinning reel, not for throwing plugs.
Lures around 2.5 inch and 1 and 1 n half ounce spoons.




Just incase someone needs to know.
Too light for my application.
