2. Okuma Raw ii

3. Raven Helix

4. Okuma Aventa


5. Streamside Extreme

I got mine used (not sure how long it was in use before) in 2015, and no issues so far.

I'd buy a used reel if I was you. You can get much better quality reels used for the same price as any of the ones you listed above sell for new.


If you don't like the used reel, you can always sell it again and get back the same amount you paid for it.


If you buy a new reel and don't like it you can also sell it, but you will won't get what you paid for it. You'll lose 25% at least.


Hunt around online, there are some good deals on ebay sometimes, or on different message boards with classified listings.
