Okuma Stratus VI Baitcasting Reel?.
I've had nothing but trouble with it from the start - almost immediately developed a clunky/grinding noise and now totally locks up after casting. The thumb release sticks down and won't release without manually popping it up. I know that it's not a "top of the line" reel, but for $50. I would think I should be able to expect reasonable quality?
I'm going to try and return it to ****'s - spend a little more for a quality reel (hopefully I won't have a problem...I've probably spent $300 - $400 at ****'s over the last month).
I'd recommend that you stay away from this reel...very poor quality. Guess you get what you pay for, right? Lol
