i've been using a couple of dynadrags without any problems and like them a lot, excellent reels, a lot of reel for the price.

I bought a pair of Dynadrag 40'sonly used one of them for plumbing yesterday. I was very impressed with the smoothness and action. For 20.00 each I cant fault them.

My good lady bought me an Okuma Renegade 50 for Xmas and it is a very nice, smooth reel. I have used it a few times but not with the bait runner facility. The reel feels quite strong and looks like it'll take some stick.

My preference is for rear drag reels, which this doesn't have, but that's just my opinion and I dare say I'll get used to the front drag when (if) I get a decent fish on. I don't know the price of them as it was a present, but they've got to be a lot less than Shimano's.

Did you buy these yet, Bob [?]

I'm looking for a pair of reels for carping and piking and just found the brand new 3 ball bearing Okuma Interceptor which looks a slightly better deal at 30 and includes a spare spool. [^]

The only thing I'm unsure about is the double handle as I've never used one and got quite big hands.

I'm not sure the best place to buy, but I found this for the 50 size :

It's also advertised in Feb's IYCF on page 23. [8D]

This is my point exactly on another thread[:D]
This proves you can get quality at a more affordable price than major brand names[:D]
And yes they are a good reel[:D][;)]

Bought 2 Dynadrag 30`s for method-feeder fishing, excellent reels for the money, 20 from WMAC, so impressed I bought the excellent EB30 with bait-runner facility, stuffed full of bearings, great quality and a good price, and performs faultlessly. Now available from lots of places for 60 ish. Okuma reels generally are good value for money reels I have found, both Coarse and Sea. The cheaper ones perform well, and the top-end stuff is excellent, generally on a par with the "good names".

I have also got an ER30 and so far am very pleased with it.[8D]

However I have read on another website of somebody who bought an Okuma Baitrunner (do not know what model) and after three weeks the rear drag fell of into the river.[:(] After getting an exchange reel the same thing happened again.[V][V]

So I guess like most things you just take a chance and pay your money.[:p]

I got one of the Interceptors last August (30 I think) and can't fault it.

It hasn't had a huge amount of use I must admit but it's been out in the wind and rain and other than a wipe down with a cloth it hasn't needed any maintenance.
