Rated 4 out of 5 by Joefish1941 Good looks
I received the 2 reels in very short time frame, when I opened the first box, I liked the reel a lot. I felt they were too large for the type of fishing i was going to use them for. so I am going to order a pair of smaller Oceanmaster's, That will match the ones that I've been using. Great reels!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by 2fish4me Did Not Meet Expectations
Have purchased a OML 20C and 25C, thought I would try out, good price and looked like good construction. First reel would not engage to retrieve, returned and replaced. Fished KingMack Tourney this weekend and used both reels, free spool was smooth as well as retrieve when setting out baits. In strike setting drag seemed to work well, but when the fight was on with the
fish the drag system was inconsistent, slipped during run of fish and retrieve was disrupted with several loss of tension and periods of freespool causing backlash. This was noted with both reels used by two crew members. Fish we caught were 25- 35 lbs. I will try and return for Penn or Shimano. These reels did not meet my expectations for the fishing I do.

I am not satisfied with the reels I bought because they do not roll theline on even. It even has a tendency to bunch up on one side and then tangle. I am returning them as soon as I go to a bass pro shop. very disatisfied!

Rated 4 out of 5 by geo8 great reel
this is a great reel, very easy to use had no problems catchen a 53.5 lbs king it took off like a rocket with the blink of the eye he striped 150 yard, and then locked the drag down at 15 lbs and the reel had a really smooth drag, I landed the king in less then 30 mins, turned around the next day and my best friend laded a 20 lbs cobia, after that the only thing that went wrong with it was the handle still able to use but become really loose, but other then that great reel

I was going to buy this and put 40 pound test mono or braid. I am not sure which to use. And is it okay if I use 40 pound? But my main concern is which is better for this reel: mono or braid for this reel. And what pound line should I use?
