Okuma Salina Jigging reels

Came across these while searching around on Ebay, might be a good thing if the line capacity was a bit more, but for price, you cant really go wrong too much.

Cheers
Dale

I wouldnt use them for

I wouldnt use them for jigging, wont last but hey with a life time warranty who cares, blow it up(which it will) and send it back for a new one.(And wait the 6months it takes for okuma to send it out to you). The only okuma reel id look at to jig with would be the v system.

The new salina is a good looking reel, but i agree with douche, that for jigging in the okuma range, the V- System is the go.

Hi. I wouldn't use the V

Hi.

I wouldn't use the V System either. Unless light jigging.

I bought a 4500 V.System along with a Daiwa Capricorn 4500J.
Capricorn is a Great reel.

V System is Similar price. Well Made. Great drag. BUT
Main shaft is only half the dia, of Daiwa ones. and gears not same quality.

Working a mid size jigger. i'd be using the Capricorn, for the extra $20..

Daiwa, Ten times better a reel.

If you can fint a Freams. $100 cheaper. and same reel. Just name change.

Okuma for missus, and visitors on boat.

See a

Yeah I agree about the mainshaft size Macka, I Spoke with the Okuma people here in Oz about getting the mainshaft beefed up x2 and that's being passed on to the factory.

Cheers
