Default Okuma Solterra SLR-20L

Hello all,

I am thinking about purchasing either the okuma slr-20l or 15l. Does anybody have any experience with these as I am curious of durability and quality? I like lever drags and this model is even a level wind. I know some folks don't like level winds but I have always had good luck with them. Please share any info about these two models.

Thanks in advance
Josh

My buddy Nathan (Moganman on the forums) has a Solterra 50w & he loves that thing. He's had absolutely no issues with his. Alan Tani (not sure if you're familiar with him but he's a big name in reel repair/upgrading/reel knowledge in general) gave the Solterras a thumbs up as well!

That's all I use. I have 10's-30's. I think the 15 is the best all around reel. Have'nt had any problems with them since I got most of them 3 years ago. I have the 15's spooled with 80lb power pro.

I have the 20LD... also bought it because Alan Tani liked the guts. It's a horse, use it for stealing grouper's souls.

thanks for all the input. Does anyone have this actual model: SLR-20L SLR-15L? These particular models are lever drag and level wind. I'm just curious how these levelwinds hold up.

Thanks,
Josh

I have both! There holding up good so far. If I didn't have so many novice fishermen fishing with me I wldnt have bought the level wind but so far so good. The tiger lite jigging rod 5'10" 80- 130 is a great match

FYI the 20L is a lot bigger reel!! 15L is perfect unless your fishing for Tuna. You should be able to get the 15L on EBay for around 105$ can't beat it!!
