If I'm correct, I believe that that's an older Omoto reel. I've read a lot about Omoto reels on a number of different forums & have read almost nothing but good things about their conventional (& spinning) reels, though I've never read anything about the specific model you have. They're a relatively new company but supposedly their gear holds up pretty well & they have good customer service. Again, everything I just said is stuff I've read, not first-hand, but I'd say you got a pretty good reel. Good luck in the search for a rod for it man.

My ugly stik tiger lite jigging rods BWSL2200 7'0 with my Penn SSV 5500s have killed many snapper, grouper, triggerfish, small AJs, bobos even cobia and have performed great. I use those rods and reels for jigging, throwing spoons/jigs and pitching live baits. Probably my favorite "all around" combo that I own.

Are there better? Sure. But they perform and perform well. At under $65 for those they are a great deal and when it comes to kayak fishing, sometimes saving a buck or two can be a good thing!!
