and search "okuma reels".

I did this after holding a Titus 50 at the striped bass expo last weekend. It looked like a great reel, very smooth and solid. I only looked at the offshore stuff, I don't know about the inshore gear.

On the big stuf, the field reports are not good. Drag issues and corrosion are the big problem. I would go to shark river mail order ( and look at their Penn Reel prices! Wow! Asingle speed 50 for only $398, like it!;)
