Looks great. performs poorly. It didn't last through 1 inshore season. The drag has slipped since season 1 and now doesn't engage at all.

Bought one of these to replace an old Abu G 6500C used for med-light saltwater casting and jigging for summer flounder, weakfish, stripers and blues. I made the BIG mistake of buying 3 more (1 for me and 2 for friends) of these before I was able to really test out my 1st one. Look and feel great out of the box, even perform great for the 1st few trips... unfortunately after that they start to fail... levelwind gets stiff, freespool button sticks, drag rough... Hate to say it because I am a fan of OA's brand but everything gets put to the test on this boat and this reel does not cut it.

if i were going to go out and buy a reel i think i would want one that was reliable and one that after a year you would not have to replace?
my choice was to spend a bit more money and buy a penn international 965 it is an amazing reel i am a captain of a charter boat so i used it everyday for 1.5 years and then one part wore out so i had to make a $15.00 investment and buy a new clicker so i think if you were going to pay for a reel get one with a good backing to prove it.

I first bought the rod and reel combo with the 7’ inshore rod and the OM2000 reel and was planning on using it for small stripers, fluke and blackfish. The first reel broke the 2nd time out when the plastic level wind snapped off. Bass Pro replaced the reel and the following year I used it for fluke fishing. On the 3rd trip the gears started to grind and the spool release would not always work until I pushed the reel in reverse to free up the gear. I hooked an 8-10lb bluefish and that’s all it wrote….. the reel spool froze up and I would have thrown it into Long Island Sound except for the $15 worth of new 30lb suffix braid I had on it. I just bought an Ambassador Record RCN60 and will put the line on that ...then I’ll throw this into the water next trip out.

I have a 4 year old reel and I can no longer get the line guide to flow freely back and forth. It looks like the piece which controls the back and forth distribution is cracked and will not allow it to move after it gets to the right side. Any suggestions?
send it to basspro repair shop. really cheap. if you look at the reel from the reverse side of levelwind there is a flat head screw cover. take the cover off and there is a pressure pin that rides the grooves on the shaft to turn the levelwind. you can replace the pin.
looks for looks there doesnt seem to be any difference between the OFA OM4000 and the Bass Pro Shops Muskie Angler round cast reels, i just want to know if they are the same, they look like it, and their descriptions are similar and so is their price so i was just wondering. Are they the same?
The main difference between the Ocean Master Reel and the Musky Angler is that the Ocean master is a Casting reel specifically made for Saltwater. The Musky Angler is a Conventional reel that is specifically made for Freshwater. Thank you!
