Rated 4 out of 5 by hazelqj Good purchase for the money
I've been using the 20D for about 6 months now. So far I have not experienced any problems. The line counter is easy to read and is accurate. I've caught many large hybrids and one medium size striper with this reel. The drag is smooth. Still though, it would be improved a little. My only annoyance is that sometimes you can't engage the line out alarm without giving an extra half crank of the handle. I like that the reel is flipped back into gear without physically flipping the switch.

One of the two reels seems to be working properly the other one has been giving me some difficulties in the way of not engaging and disengaging the gears properly I will attempt to fix myself, I fish alot and do not have time to return and wait for repairs. I will simply repurchase another brand from somewhere. This is a 55.00$ reel but still should give proper service brand new outta the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trolerboy wore one out and replaced with a line counter
My original okuma reel saw alot of fish tug on it and wore out after many years of use. Replaced it with a new line counter. I wish it came with two handles, I prefer the double one over the single.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drag Great investment
I was reluctant to purchase a line counter reel after reading some reviews on various brands, but I couldn't be happier with the quality of these Okuma reels. I troll fresh water for stripers. I am ordering a couple more right now. You won't be disappointed.
