      Have used the Avenger to catch walleye, carp, and catfish. Just love the baitfeeder system. First time out using the Avenger 65 caught a 45 lb Flathead. Worked just how it was suppose too!

        Comments about Okuma Fishing Tackle Okuma Avenger ABF-65 Bait Feeder Reel:

        Surf fishing and casting 300ft plus most spinning reels the bail will fall back when a lot of pressure is applied to cast 400+ and when the bail closes it will snap your line there goes a $20 lure or your hooks and weights and that can be very costly during the day. But The Okuma Aenger and Expior the bail does not. The reel also does not need taken apart as it is water proof and that a big plus when fishing in salt water. When finish fishing in salt water just rinse it off with a garden hose on low pressure. Have both avenger abf65 and a Expior abf 65 for 7 years and never had a problem and I fish at least once a week in saltwater here in Navarre Fl. and Mexixo. The ball bearing are great. I have 50 lb braided line on my reels. approx. 800ft so when those big roosters or jacks take off running you wont be spooled. Okuma got these reel just right. maybe in a couple a more years I will send them off to be opened and cleaned/new parts by Okuma.

          Comments about Okuma Fishing Tackle Okuma Avenger ABF-65 Bait Feeder Reel:

          I use my 65 on a 6 1/2 ft heavy action rod with 25lb line. I fish maniunly from a pier or seawall, sometimes shore.
          This reel stalds up to the BIG ones as well or better than a famous maker reel I have tried, for FAR less money. I have caught several big snook, grouper, and a HUGE tarpon on it. I love the bite alarm feature on it. Since buying my 65, I bought another 65 and a 55 to update my toys. If you need a new spinning reel, get a bait feeder feture on it....GET AN OKUMA ! !

            Comments about Okuma Fishing Tackle Okuma Avenger ABF-65 Bait Feeder Reel:

            I primarily use the 65 on an 8' e-glass rod for very large catfish. This reel seems to hold up to large fish as well as my Abu baitcasters, still has a bite alarm, yet does NOT have the occasional backlash/spool overrun of the baitcasting reels. What more could you ask for?
