Okuma Komodo size?

Postby aka anglinarcher » Thu Jun 22, 2017 2:29 pm

Larry, in 2015 you were testing the Okuma Komodo on wolfies, etc., and you seemed to like it. Do you remember the size you were using?

I see they have gone from the "R" series to an "S" series and increased the sizes but trying to figure it out.

Thanks,

I was using the 350 size. 'excellent reel for the money..the larger version is a little clumky for my tastes., but if you need the line capacity...

Thanks Larry, that will help a lot. Just one more question on this subject if I can? :?: :?:

In the current line, I was looking at the KDS 364 PLX Komodo, but mostly because it uses the power handle and is left handed. I use both hands but seem to prefer to reel with my left. Go figure. This seems to be the 350 size reel size.

:?: :?: How do you think this would match up to a TFD BFC 763-2 BIG FISH rod from TFO? :?: :?:
I was thinking it would be a well rounded rod for Peacocks to Wolfies to even some Roosters and Toons, and maybe some Sails with a good boat crew. Am I asking too much for one rod/reel combo here? I know I might be over gunned on some, under gunned on some, but that is kind of the nature of fishing. :oops:

Thanks again,

The 350 and lefty version will work well , but as a single stick I think I would choose the 2 power.
