    I actually own 3 SLV’s in different sizes. I am a custom rod builder, and I can say with no doubt that this reel is one of the best reels for the money, or even 2 to 3 times it’s price, out there. It is not milled, but it is plenty light, end plenty tough with a very good drag system and super smooth retrieval. The large drag knob is very nice during the fight, and the reel is pretty nice to look at on any rod (if the looks matter to you). It is also a matte finish which I like when fishing for easily spooked fish. It is a no-brainer at under 60 bucks!

    I bought an OKUMA SLV 4/5 for my 4 weight rod after a friend recommended it and it is awsome. Very smooth.
    Now if you buy from Amazon read below, go to the OKUMA site first to figure out which reel size you need.

    “I’ve flyfished for over 40 years and couldn’t make heads or tails out of these designations until I got a look at a chart that listed the maximum length of the backing line (yds.) and its breaking point (lbs. – relating directly to its diameter). Obviously, the copy writer didn’t have a clue about what’s actually relevant here.”

    I couldn’t have said it better. Without a trip to the OKUMA web site I wasn’t able to figure out which line weight each reel was. I tell you, when I look at a web site if it’s not clear on what they are advertising or can’t find it, I just move on. I have been buying from Amazon for a while now, come on people please fix this. I hope this doesn’t fall through deaf ears. Thanks

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I purchased this reel with some concern that I was getting a “cheap” reel instead of an inexpensive one. I traditionally have paid as much as 5 times this amount for my steelhead and salmon reels. I intended to use it for Steelhead fishing in the midwest, as a streamer setup, and figured that even if it wasn’t that great, I would have a fall back for my other reels. Once I received it, I was very impressed with the quality of the drag system and the smooth retrieve. I changed my mind, once I saw it and have used it as a dry line, indicator rig, because I trust the action and the drag. Definitely an incredible value for the money, and warranteed for a year so if there are any problems, Okuma will stand behind the product. I am blown away by this item and may end up getting more of them based on the quality I have seen.
