Re: Okuma Makaira reels
I've not used a Makaira, but the reviews at AlanTani.com are that they are far better than other Okuma conventionals.
I've got a Titus 50W and a Titus Silver 50WII. The silver is clearly better, but I'm still not sure either has the fit and finish of my TLD 50w LRS.
If I could get one at a discount, say so that it was less than a TLD, I would not hesitate.
