Is Okuma a good reel brand?
Okuma is based out of Taiwan and has been producing quality fishing reels for both saltwater and freshwater since 1986. While Okuma may not be as wide a known name as other manufacturers like Penn and Shimano we have been impressed with a number of their reels especially in the low-price and mid-price ranges.
Are Okuma reels made in USA?
tunanorth said: Just to clarify, all Penn models from $249 [Baja Special] and up are made in the USA. A total of 34 different models [5 additional series besides Internationals], not counting color and bail options, including the only US-made spinning reels besides Accurate.
