These reels are great for running 8 to 10 colors of lead core line and getting down deep for lake Michigan salmon

The Convector series reels are the best LC reel for the money period! I've been using them for salmon on Lake Mich. now for 5 years and they are just as good as the day I bought them. I've tried others, but these win everytime unless you want to spend twice as much. There's no other reel that comes close for the money.

Spool doesn't want to engade when downrigging, slipping and grinding and stripped the pawls out in very short time.
Maybe these should not be used for downrigging.
I think the problem is too weak of springs on the spool pawl and the new pawls i got from Okuma were a different material, so hopefully they will work. I have 5 or 6 of these reels 30's and 45's and none of them have worked perfect. I used the old magna reels with no problems.
I also found that the space between the spool and the reel body is too large and 15 pound mono will slip into the gap when letting line out and then you can't get it out without breaking the line or pulling the reel apart, sucks hand bombing in 300 feet of line. I also have the same problem with the bass pro version StrataMaster with smaller braided line and 6 pound mono

My buddy and I own three between us. He just bought his and used it once after I told him how great they are. We use them for keeper sturgeon. His reel broke half way through the day on the first trip out. Gears were slipping and grinding. Lucky for him I had a back up one. If you're using heavy gear, like 80 lbs braid, 20 ounces of lead and fighting 20 lbs fish. These reels might not be the ones you're looking for. I am thinking about stepping it up to a heavier duty reel. But the line counter is great and the over sized crank is nice for checking on missed hits.

Added these to the boat to use for high lines. The higher speed line retrieve and compact size works well with the Rainbows/Steelhead. I took the reel handle and moved it to the maximum position to get some extra power out of the reel, this is an extra bonus that Okuma does that others do not. So far no issues.
The click drag is also very nice feature.
