i have an okuma mag 20 came with level wind as i was new to multi's it suited me or so i thought your right it doesnt hold much line and the level wind just slows it down quite a bit so i have removed it but i have a penn 525
now and the okuma is just a backup reel so depending on ur budget id go for size 30 okuma or something else or bit more money the 525

You would be better off getting a standard 7HT.

I use the Okuma Magnetex 30 reels i own 2 of tehm i use them on Century Supasport rods.

The 30 r great reels for the price. I cast happily with them and they work excellently.

If u r buying the Okuma reels definetly get the 30's they r great.
