For us at okuma fishing tackle, fishing is a life-long adventure. Collectively, none of us fish as often, catch as many, or are as consistently successful as we would like, and thankfully so. Fishing is not a destination; it's an endless pursuit that begins long before we ever get to the water. The anticipation of the next opportunity is as valuable as the time spent on the water. At okuma, we Craft the tools for the journey. From entry-level through expert, every rod and reel is constructed not only to execute, but also to excite, energize and exhilarate. From feeling the tap, tap, tap of a drift rig Searching its way along the bottom of a Steelhead stream, to turning a lifeless lead Jig into a fleeing bait-fish in the salt, every cast, crank, bobber down and hookup are the rich details of the journey.

The good: operates pretty smoothly, you get plastic and metal spool which is a nice touch.
The bad: the bail doesn't stay fully open, sometimes it sort of tiny bit closes (moves in for a like 1/16 of an inch which you don't notice until you realize that your line is not laid on to the spool but half is on the reel.
The ugly: line laying is just horrible, the pinion and gear mechanism inside must be too large for the reel. What that leads to is that when you have a thin braided line (I used 8lb test braid) it goes too fast from one end of the spool to another and then back, resulting in very ugly line laying, which leads to horrible wind knots.
It has decent materials with pretty horrible braid line laying and it's just not designed for braid IMO, it might be ok with thicker mono or fluorocarbon line.
Won't buy again and won't recommend it.
I own 4 UL rods and 3 of em have okuma UL 10's on em. The 4th has a Pfluger president UL mounted. My other, bigger rods have Pfluger reels on em and they're worth every penny. However, when actually comparing the Okuma UL vs the Pfluger it came down to 3 things
1. Dependability. I've never had a problem with either reel. No bail issues. (remember to completely open the bail.) I've never had issues with premature bail closing.
2. Cost. Okuma is cheaper sure, but don't let that fool you. It's a tough dependable reel. It rates equal with the Pfluger. However Okuma will wear out a bit faster. But for the price point, who cares. I've had expensive Penn reels wear out over time too.
3. This one is supplement to the cost.
The Pfluger is a bit smoother in retrieve simply due to the 7 ball bearings vs the 3 on the okuma. It's just not that necessary to pay twice the money for one reel being more smooth than the other. They're both smooth though. You won't be paying attention to smoothness while bringing in a fish.
Save your money and buy the okuma
