It's a good deal but the title sucks. This is the Okuma Avenger Abf-80b. It holds 220yards of 30lbs. test monofilament. There is no better baitfeeder reel for the money than the Okuma reels. The is the Abf B series. They are lighter and claim a stronger drag than the A series. I still prefer the Abf A series for big reels though (above 40 size). The A series has a rubber seal at the drag washer and the reel feels more stout. It also comes with an additional graphite spool.

No hate, man. If people pick up on this, a moderator will fix the description. You definitely found a good deal. Historical low is around $49 and it almost never goes below $55.

One big difference is I believe the line does not twist on every spin.

Are the bass rated ones also a good deal or are they typically normal price. That is what I'm in the market for.

A baitfeeder reel has essentially two drag systems. One, activated by a trigger of some sort, is very light and allows the fish to run with minimal drag (almost free spool) until you activate the main drag and set the hook. They are also referred to as baitrunner reels.

Clicking on the baitfeeder which even has its own drag allows the the bait to be picked up and run with by a fish. It can be set by way of it's drag to anywhere from basically no tensions to higher tension giving the fish some drag but still feeding line easily. A turn of the handle disengage the baitfeeder system, your primary drag kicks it and you can reel and fight the fish as normal. Okuma has there own fine explanation that says it better than I can.
Quote :
When fishing live baits, chunk baits, worms, insects or dough baits, the best fishing success often comes from allowing fish to secure a solid hold of the bait without feeling the resistance of the fishing rod and gear. This is difficult to accomplish with traditional spinning reels. Okuma Baitfeeding Technology is the ultimate bait fishing solution. Featuring a secondary drag system in the rear of the reel, the Baitfeeder switch completely disengages the primary drag system. With the bail of the reel closed and the line remaining well under control, the Baitfeeder switch allows line to pay out under an adjustable amount of tension. Once the fish has had time to completely eat a bait, a turn of the reel handle disengages the baitfeeder system, re-engages the primary drag system and the fish can be hooked and landed with total control.
Great feature for those that fish live or cut bait and for fish that are shy when they feel tension on a line. Carp and catfish fisherman along with surf fisherman love the feature and I imagine it works well with many other species I know and don't know of.

Keep in mind it does add some bulk and weight to the reel and if not a feature you see yourself using one of the straight AB series may be more to your liking

Any good video suggestions for learning to use one of these? I got a cheaper one last summer but didn't get to go out much. Messed around with it outside some and tried it once on the water, but knowing what I'm doing with it more before going out next summer would make the experience a lot better.

Do a Youtube search for 'Okuma baitfeeder reel" and you should see tons of them with everything you'd need to know, including how to dial in the secondary drag. Although some of the videos will focus on saltwater fishing, the same principals should apply to any Okuma baitfeeder for freshwater fishing.


This is a very decent deal - I paid a lot more than this for my three Okumas, and I have always considered that money well spent.

Ok thanks. That was my plan wasn't sure if anyone had a "I learned from this youtuber" recommendation. Sometimes its hard to tell who knows what they are talking about and who just made a video for the heck of it on youtube.

If you look, Okuma themself posts product videos. Some of them are very good regarding reel features.

How is this compared to Shimano baitrunner d? Price-wise it is night and day but does the quality justify for the price difference?

Got one for a friend's birthday. His reel broke recently. This seems very nice. Thanks for the post.
