Has been excellent so far
I can't "officially" confirm it, but this appears to be a repainted Scheels brand of the Okuma Cold Water Line Counter 153D model. My Scheels didn't even carry the Cold Water version anymore. Model number, description, and side by side comparisons all but confirm its the same reel, for $25 less. If this was confirmed and common knowledge, they'd sell piles of them. I certainly haven't been disappointed. Paired it with a basic Scheels 8'6" trolling rod and data from Precision Trolling and it's been excellent. The clicker is awesome and make it real exciting when you get a fish on. Gone are the days of holding rods with spinning reels or low pro bait casters, with random lengths of line trailing behind. This is an awesome way to troll, and I won't do it any other way. 100% recommend.
