Rated 5 out of 5★ by bobbubba38 Great new reel. First time buyer of an Okuma product. I sought out all reviews I could find. After buying this reel I was very impressed. It IS as advertised. Light, extremely smooth, quiet and well made. I purchased the 30 size "S" for high speed. It is fast!! First use handled bass and pike with ease with 8 lb line. I love this baby and am going to get another for my son. Price points are excellent, a lot lower than MSRP here at WMart. It is also a fine looking reel using latest technology. I would expect many yrs of service based on Okumas reputation 10/12/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by silverback13 just as good if not better than many reels in the $200 price range will last for many year as long as you keep it clean matche perfect to my okuma citrix rod. 08/13/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Vvs1Blue TrioS Has Turned Me into an Okuma Collector! I've recently began a collection of reels and rods and I was drawn by the Okuma brand's looks and product development throughout the years. Yes, I have done my homework! One of my first purchases has been the TrioS 40 which I have strung up with a Monofiber wrap then attached Spiderwire 30lbs Braid. I attached the reel to the Okuma Tarvos rod. The size 40 is quite adequate for the type of fishing that I do around Biscayne Bay and I cheat by using the 30 Lb braid. Since the braid diameter is thinner than mono 125 yards fits easily on the spool. The TrioS performed flawlessly while fishing for snappers 2-6 lbs. Setting the drag was effortless and once done, cleaning was just as easy.I was not satisfied with the performance of the Tarvos rod so I changed to a Abu Garcia Vigilante for my next fishing trip and cannot wait to test out this formidable combination as I wait for an Okuma Citrix rod I specifically ordered for this reel. 05/27/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by 2fattire Great Reel , real smooth and high-speed retrieve I paired up my Okuma SST Steelhead pole with a Okuma Trio 55S . Nice fit, so smooth, ten bearings ,high-speed , tough too , loaded with braided line. For me it just could not get much better. Great price for a quality reel. 02/18/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Crabbypants31 $30 dollar performace in a $80 reel. This reel reminds me of the prototypes you read about in the "What's coming next year" section of fishing magazines. However, it must have gotten released too soon. It casts like a dream; but it reels in like a grade school science project. The gear ratio is so high, the bail MUST be operated by hand. If not, it binds so bad it feels like the handle will break before the bail closes.The purists say that's how it's supose to work. Yet all of the 80 dollar reels, including the Trio bait feeder, operate as slick as can be. The drive pinion #the gear that the handle drives# is not supported and results in a handle feeling loose. The handle wobbles as a result. These excess clearances are generally the way the whole reel is designed.To bad. This is like selling a fast car with no brakes. I also own an Okuma Epixor Baitfeeder. That and a Cedros Saltwater baitcaster reel. They are top shelf reels. The Trio Baitfeeder has similar clearance issues to the 40S except the bail can be closed by turning the handle.I usualy manually close the bails on open face reels as a matter of practice. But, occationally, I like to use the handle. 07/19/2013

Rated 5 out of 5★ by soddyjeff okuma trio high speed spinning reel Bought two of the 30"s and I am thoroughly impressed for the price. I also use pflueger president spinning reels which cost a few more bucks than these and I like the okuma's better. I use these for white bass and small mouth bass on the tennessee river. They are spooled with berkley braid at ten pounds, 2 lb diameter. Mated to a 7 foot medium pflueger president im8 rod. This is an outstanding combination. I am very impressed with okuma reels, I now have 5 of them. I highly recommend these reels. 02/14/2013
