To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have been wanting this reel for awhile so when I found it was available on Amazon, I snapped it up. 7 days later it arrives here in Australia. I spooled it up with 4lb braid and next day took it to a local lake. Flicked in a lure and felt it get hammered. Ended up pulling out a 40cm tilapia. The little C-10 handled the fish with ease. Absolutely no trouble at all. I already have the Ceymar C-25 so I knew the C-10 would be a good reel but it pretty much exceeded all my expectations. I highly recommend this reel for anyone wanting an affordable quality ultralight reel. You can’t go wrong.
My okuma ceymar c-10 reel has a lot of frequent tangles with line getting under the spool and then causing chaos! It was pretty smooth but one session after my reel got stiffer and less smooth. Drag is quite unsmooth with the bail being quite easy to bend! Not impressed
The C-10 and C-30 reels are my second and third modern fishing reels after I decided to upgrade from a couple inherited reels that probably date from the early/mid-1980s at earliest.
In that context, I found them perfectly solid, lightweight, reliable reels - definitely more of a pleasure to use, and more solidly built than the plasticky modern $25 reel they replaced, and with nicer features and lighter weight than my vintage reels. I brought in my first salmon with the C-30 on 10lb braid main line/10lb fluorocarbon leader and didn't give any thought to the function of the reel as the fish went in several runs - which is the way you want it. I also brought in, and tons of small fish (suckers, baby trout, and sunfish) with the C-10.
Compre el C-10 y me parece un muy buen carrete para la pesca UL, tamaño justo para una caña de 5" a 6" Le caben 110yds de fluorocarbon de 4lbs. De marco fuerte y materiales de primera, antireversa instantanea, 7 baleros y drag maximo de 6.6lbs. El debanador no es del todo redondo, tiene ligeros ángulos que le dan una imagen diferente y ruda a la vez.
The C10 size is perfect for ice fishing, this reel uses grease that does not bind up in the cold making this a great reel if you fish outside in the winter. Smooth drag and nice eva handle makes this one of the best bang for your buck reels out there.
Excellent value for money. This is good little real to pair up with my 5'6" ultralight rod for panfish and perch. Drag is in line with light application and smooth. Casts well and retrieve is smooth. I will probably buy a couple more for my sons.
