The introduction of the Okuma Aventa Center-Pin Float Reel sets a new standard for what can be expected in a precision-machined float reel. Excellent for casting directly from the reel or for drag-free drifts -- perfect for hauling in big kings. This 4.5'' reel is built from solid aluminum bar stock and features two stainless steel ball bearings. Easy-turning handles and center-pin design make getting into the action effortless. Plus, an easily removable spool ensures that maintenance after a muddy run won't turn into a headache.

Stay Sharp!
When your float is passing through seemingly unproductive water, it's easy to lose concentration. Salmon and steelhead will move a fair distance to attack a suspended offering, especially if it's floating naturally down river. Attracting the ''fish from nowhere'' is one of the key advantages to float fishing. Always be ready for a strike!

Great equipment I've been using this reel for 3 yrs now. I abused many times but still works great. Sure Raven and other are better but they only cost twice or triple more. This is a great reel if you are starter. March 21, 2013
Great starting reel I am not sure the guy two posts below knows how to pin. Anyway, this is my 0.02. This is a GREAT reel for getting into centerpin. Dont let other negative reviews confuse you. Yes, islander/raven/kingpin/etc... are better, but you get to pay much more $$. Let me tell you this, this is the best starter reel. After some experiences, you think you know how to pin, then either buy another reel or upgrade the bearing on aventa. Spending $30 on high quality ABEC-7 bearing, your aventa will spin just as good as other highend centerpin reels. Of course, it's still an aventa... If you r serious about pin, then get some hand made pins. I know people with many hand made pin reels who still fish this reel, because it's so cheap you dont have to take too much care when using it. The other expensive reels are more like "collection" items. November 24, 2011
Good Starter Reel The Aventa is good at what its designed to be; a starter center pin reel. Yes there are better balanced, smoother, lighter reels out there, but for this price, it can not be beat. I have not had any problems with mine. It spins great and has very tight tolerances. Start up was a lil slow at first but I fixed that by soaking the bearings in a degreaser and then applying 2 drops of reel oil to them instead. This is a good investment for someone who is unsure if they want to become a dedicated 'pinner or a backup for a buddy. October 2, 2011
Beware the cheap Pin! I purchased this centerpin last spring just before trout opener, as BP was offering a rod/reel combo, the Browning Six Rivers 13' rod and pin for $300. The other guys I fish with use Islanders and Ravens, and compared to those pins I was not impressed with this at all and felt a bit ripped off. The rod is amazing and great for horsing big steelies/bows out of trees and keeping them from running too far (and would recommend it as a good stiff rod vs like a st.croix, but the Okuma pin itself was very stiff, and the action was not as free flowing as I would have expected, especially for longer drifts. This is a BASE MODEL centerpin, not for serious anglers. If your thinking about purchasing a pin save your money, and put it into something that you will enjoy. not on this one!!.... March 16, 2011

FYI- This would be a good choice for Redfish. We are unable to recommend rods. However, you may find Rod by searching online key word "Rods". Thanks
