Good Choice for the money

Okuma Solterra is a good affordable reel. It's smooth and strong. I have put the SLR-10L reels to the test over the years, trolling offshore for Albacore and Salmon (Washington Coast area) and Yellowtail on Sea of Cortez. It casts OK too. The rounded construction is easy on your wrist when holding the forward grip of the fishing rod. The clicker seems to wear down a bit quick but the parts are easy to get and easy to install.

Outstanding reel

Bought the 50 series about 2 months ago I do a lot of cat fishing back home and a week ago I used it for snagging spoonbill back home and I have to say that was a little worried about casting a lever drag but the reel preformed flawlessly I can sling a 3 oz sinker about 75 yards pretty easy and as for the drag well I pulled in a 70 lb spoonbill in heavy current with ease over all if you need a reel that you have to put some strain on this will do everything you need it to and more

I BOUGHT THE 50L LEVELWIND. THIS REEL IS HUGE. HAVE IT SPOOLED WITH 250LB BRAIDED HELD ABOUT 400 YARDS.
HAVE NOT HAD IT OUT YET BUT THIS REEL LOOKS AND FEELS LIKE IT CAN HANDLE ANYTHING.
LOVE OKUMA REELS

I was told by a friend to buy one of these reels. I wasn't sure what i was going to get as far as quality but when it came I was very impressed it is a great reel and built really good and looks great. I don't know what to compare it to but it seems to be built a lot better than my PENN lever wind reels. I will be testing it this march on a rock fishing trip that will tell m,e if i buy another one. So far i cant see anything i dislike. It has what i wanted lever drag lever wind.

This reel is the best reel i have ever used for big game and it works excellent in fresh or saltwater.
This reel has so menu options of how you want to work your reel and a great clicker this reel could handle anything

I like this reel, the SL10 - how it handles and fishes. It easily took 500 yards 50 lb Power Pro. I have caught 40" bullreds and small-medium sharks with it from piers and shore. The drag wasn't even really tested. I can cast with it a bit wo backlash. I hope to really test it against some blackfin and yellowfin tuna in LA, I think it will do fine for what it's intended.

Great Reel at a Great Price

This is my first level drag reel and while comparing it to other brands I found that in most cases it held more line and had more drag than reels in its class at a much lower price. I like the fact that this a level drag reel that also has a level wind. The large handle is more comfortable than any other reel I have ever owned. And it is a good looking reel, although I know that looks have nothing to do with quality. I have been a fan of Okuma reels since I first discovered them while stationed in Cuba. While many of my friends are out spending twice the money to buy Penn, Shimano, or Avet reels I have stuck with Okuma and have only had one issue with a level arm which stopped moving from side to side, otherwise the reel was still able to haul in the big ones. I have heard about the issue that plagued Okuma in the past but I think they must have worked out all the bugs because I have noticed professionals using them more often. Haven't tested this one yet but I have no doubt it will perform like my other okumas "excellent".
