My Smoothest Okuma Spinning Reels! Got the 20, 30 & 40 Units Now!

Until you've tried one you'll be amazed just how smoothly this spinner cranks line back on! My friend Jeff Robles of JRA sent me my requested Helios 40 unit a few years back. Man, for the first time i fell in love with a reel. The smoothest retrieve of any spinner i'ver ever owned! Yes, at one time i owned all the recent Shimano releases so i do know the term "buttery smooth".

After Jeff left CA for TX i got a surprise package in the mail. Jeff sent me the other 2 sizes of the Helios, the 20 & 30. I was almost moved to tears as he knew how much i loved these reels. Now my Helios family is complete. This was the first time i've used this in awhile as i don't want to punish my units (yeah, yeah). In this re-review i matched the 40 with the 1pc Epixor Rod. I do own Epixor Spinners for the Epixor Rod but sorry, i wanted to use the Helios on it.

Will try this again when the winds aren't gusting this badly & the fish decide to come up & play. Typical Fall in Hawaii for fishing.
