OKUMA Okuma Solterra Reels

A fully adjustable magnetic cast control system sets these versatile lever drag reels apart. The cast control system lets you to launch baits like you would with a typical casting reel by regulating pressure on the forged-aluminum anodized spool during each cast, maximizing distance and preventing backlashes. An oversized, stainless steel XL Gearing system gives you balanced power and speed for hauling in big fish and working fast-action lures. A lightweight, corrosion-resistant frame promotes easy handling for quick sight-casts and extended fights. Ultrasmooth five-bearing drive system with quick-set anti-reverse for hard-hitting hooksets. Heat-resistant Carbonite drag. A titanium-coated Strong Arm levelwind system lays line evenly across the spool for smoother casts with fewer kinks. Ergonomic handle knob.

10size- Solid graphite leverdrag- good value

Date:February 22, 2012
I like this reel, the SL10- how it handles and fishes. It easily took 500yds 50lb Powerpro. I have caught 40" bullreds and small-medium sharks with it from piers and shore. The drag wasn't even really tested. I can cast with it a bit wo backlash. I hope to really test it against some blackfin and yellowfin tuna in LA, I think it will do fine for what it's intended.

Good Choice for the money

Date:February 19, 2012
Solterra is a good afordable reel. It is smooth and strong. I have put the SLR-10L reels to the test over the years, trolling offshore for Albacore and Salmon (Washington Coast area) and Yellowtail on Sea of Cortez. It casts OK too. The rounded constuction is easy on your wrist when holding the forward grip of the fishing rod. The clicker seems to wear down a bit quick but the parts are easy to get and easy to install.

size10 and size 15 reels the same?

Date:January 21, 2012
Okuma needs to make the size 10 much smaller. It's almost identical to the size 15?

okuma solterra

Date:May 4, 2009
I'm using this reel for bank casting for sturgeon
with power pro 65 lb line, its a good performer
I was told that a lever drag reel could not be an effective casting reel, but this reel, with magnetic cast control works well.
I'll be taking it with me to alaska on a halibut trip in june, loaded with 320 yards of 65 lb test it should bring home the big one
