Our Ocean Master Surf Spinning Reel is a great all-around reel for a variety of heavy-duty spinning techniques, and is equally at home on a surf rod, tossing baits into a rip, or loaded with braid for sailfish. The 6-washer drag smoothly manages smokin' runs, while the anti-reverse bearing ensures seamless drag engagement. The manual bail trip picks the line up as crisp as can be, and the high-capacity spool is cold-forged, machined, and hard-anodized. Machined-aluminum handle features an ergonomic soft touch rubber knob. And with its incredibly smooth 11-bearing system, the Offshore Angler Ocean Master Surf Reel will easily become one of your favorites!

I was extremely dissappointed with this reel. After using it for 2 days for off shore fishing the reel continiously would tangle the line under the spool, the reverse lock out would not function most of the time and the forward tang that locks the reel into the pole broke right off. To avoid ruining my trip I purchased a Penn reel which functioned flawlessly.
I will be returning this item for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SnMFishing one big reel!!!
Huge line capacity, great drag, and long line retrive make this reel one of my favorite reels in my saltwater arsenal. I have this reel mounted to a 12' Ande rod, an awesome set-up for Surf fishing. The only down side to this reel is that it is BIG!!! I would recomend at-least a 10' rod for this reel.
