I own 3 of the okuma 30s. On 2 of them the levelwind went dicky and they were replaced for 2 new ones without levelwind and these have been great.

A nice chunky reel suitable for pier, beach and general boat fishing all in all a good all rounder for the money. For casting set the mag on full and then gradually back them off to a lower setting to suit you style of casting. Good luck
Cheers
