Okuma Serrano Application?

Recommended Posts

I ran across a great deal on one NIB on another site, I read Tackle Tour's review, and pulled the trigger. All my other reels are BPS reels (RC, PQ, and a Nitro on my stump puller) and this thing feels like it's about half the weight of the others as well as being 2/3 the size. I haven't had a chance to take it out yet, but it feels extremely smooth.

Anyway, I'm thinking about which rod I should pair this up with and what application it should be used for. As of right now, I'm thinking of spooling it up with 10 or 12Lb flouro and picking up a M weight, fast action, 6'6" rod and using it for smaller, light weight plastics or smaller cranks/jerks.

Either that, or it could just go on one of my general duty rods. I'd like to see it get more time than any of the others though as it definitely seems to be of higher quality and fits my hand better.

Any ideas would be appreciated and thanks in advance!

I've only done the old hold the reel, spin the handle check at the store on this reel.  Taking the size, bearing count and gear ratio into account, I think your right on in the applications you're choosing.  Once you spool it up and cast  some different lures you'll be able to dial it in. :)

Have you checked out the Okuma C3 rods? Seems like that would be a great match.

those are sweet reels , you know they have a 3 year warranty on them !!! . anyhow , they have a 6.2:1 gear ratio so that is a middle of the road gear ratio as far as applications it can be used for .
