I notice the Okuma Avenger 50 is on sale at Dick's Sporting Goods this week for $39. That is a fantastic price for this reel. I consider this reel to be a "Best Buy" in baitrunner reels. I have a couple of these and have taken many big carp with them. They have been reliable, hold a good amount of line (I use 15 or 20 lb. test mono), and they have smooth drags. A baitrunner reel is THE most important piece of equipment a carp fisherman can purchase. If you are in the market for one of these reels, check out the Okuma Avenger.
