    Price Paid: 29.95
    Recommended: yes
    Pros: inexpensive; smooth operation; spare spool
    This Okuma model is apparently only available at Dick's Sporting Goods. The XTS-20 is an ultralight reel; other Stratus XTS models is available in larger sizes as well. There is also a baitcaster version of the Stratus XTS.

    This is a preliminary review, since i've only had the reel a month. I have been extremely pleased with the product so far -- very smooth operation, casts well (using 8lb Fireline), and the drag is smooth.

    Based on previously experience with an earlier Stratus model, i'm not confident reel would hold up to saltwater use. I plan to use it only in freshwater.

    The price can be especially good. The normal "sale" price at Dick's is $39.95, but the reel is occasionally reduced to $29.95.

    In short, based on my experience at this time, the Okuma Stratus XTS makes for a reliable & smooth freshwater spinning reel.

    I will update review after i've put some more miles on it.
