Shimano tranx or okuma komodo?

Post by AlanJenner3271 » Wed May 05, 2021 9:29 pm

HI all,

I'm looking to replace my heavy duty baitcasting reel & i'm struggling to choose between the shimano tranx 401 or okuma komodo 364 left hand wind.
I mainly use swimbaits or jerkbaits between 70g and 150g on rivers & canals & i think either would be strong, reliable & suitable for my needs but wondered if anyone had experience of either or both.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Alan.

Thanks for the reply Jason, i had not considered a round reel because i tend to cup the reel in my hand when using jerkbaits, having said that, i have pretty big hands & it may not be an issue.

I will have a look at these as well.

Thanks again for your input. 😁👍
