So here is the deal. I need to know if my Okuma SLV reel is going to be reliable WHEN I finally hook one this year. I am at the point that I am so determined to hook a steelhead this year. I had a horrible dream that I finally hooked a big steelhead and my reel started smoking and gave in, and lost the fish. LOL So if you guys think I should ditch the Okuma I will because if the Okuma does not have a good reputation for being reliable then I need to get another reel. If you guys do think I need another reel can you help me keep in around 150 bucks or less?
