Okuma Epix EF65

This reel was purchased quite some time ago. About two years ago. Sadly, I have not really used this reel to its full potential. It was an impulse buy for my first trip to One Fathom Bank. I am not sure why I bought this. Until today, this reel has not been tested to its maximum capacity. Hopefully this reel will be put to better use in the near future.

Here are some features of this reels.
  • Machined aluminum spool with TI coated stainless steel spool lip.
  • Nine SUS sealed ball bearings plus one-way roller bearing
  • EDSTM Extra Drag System. oil soaked felt and stainless steel drag.
  • Quick Set anti-reverse
  • Touch folding handle arm.
  • Spare aluminum spool included
The specs of the reel are:
  • Model : EF-65
  • Gear Ratio : 4.5:1
  • Weight (oz.) : 24.3
  • Bearings : 9+1
  • Line Capacity : 450/12 340/15 260/20

Super smooth stuff!

I bought the baitrunner model - Epix EB20 - and it is a very smooth model.

Unfortunately the reelseat broke, and now I have to permanently glue it the the rod.

Otherwise an excellent reel.

Yup , very smooth , quiet and balanced . Using ER40 >3 yrs.

Caution: Line-roller/bearing/washer can rust and jam due to seawater trapped inside.
Make sure u open up those parts and
soak in antirust regularly.
Otherwise its perfect.
