|Standard retrieve Okuma|
|High speed retrieve Okuma|
This reel comes in a standard retrieve, Trio-55, and a high speed model, Trio-55S. I have both and I prefer the standard model. I like the handle on this model better and I also thought the standard model was a bit smoother on the retrieve. The Trio-55 weighs in at 15 oz. and matches up well with an 8 or 9 foot surf rod or a 7 foot boat rod. I spooled my Trios with 30 lb. test Power Pro braid. It is very braid friendly, and I have never gotten a wind know with this reel.
The reel is a super product right out of the box. However, my big question is how well will it hold up to the abuse of heavy use over time. I don't know the answer to that question, but for $60, I'm willing to take my chances that it will last at least several years.
