Great if you reel with your let hand
Bought the 55s for inshore spinning. Very nice construction with good drag, and casts well. I am a lefty and reel with my right hand, and to put the handle on the right side you must tighten it clockwise, so when you are reeling hard the handle starts to come off. I try to tighten it down as much as possible without breaking it, but would not buy one again for this reason. But for you righties, go for it.
ProsQuality, looks, holds lots of line.
ConsHope I don't hook anything big, I'll never land it unless I hold the rod in my right hand and reel with my left, which sux.

Great reel drag to weight ratio is perfect for the offshore game as you will see
My first fish on this new Okuma CJ-80-S Cedros reel paired with the new Okuma CJ-S-601MA rod was this impressive 50 plus pound lemon fish we caught while night fishing near an oil rig in the Gulf Of Mexico off the Louisiana coast.

What a great first fish memory for this rod n reel combo!
ProsThis reel gave enough drag for the fish to make its run and still bring it back in when needed during the fight. This Okuma rod n reel combination with the CJS601MA is a great balance for any offshore recreational angler.

Bang for your Bucks
I was looking for a spin reel with power and fast retrieve, primarily for jigging Blackfish. With 24 lbs of Drag and a 6+ gear ratio this reel fits the bill. I was also pleasantly surprised by the smooth drag and the quality . Just a matter of time before the cost of this reel catches up with its performance.
ProsSmooth . Well built. Great value for the price.
ConsNone yet

As the owner of several Okuma spinning reels, this is one of the smoothest of all and has been able to handle all of the jigging and bottom fishing off of my boat here in Hawaii.

A solid performer
I just realized that it appears TD no longer carries the Cedros baitfeeder reel. Checked Okuma's website and did not see it there either. Anyhow, I do not have this reel but I do have 2 of the 55 Cedros baitfeeders. I needed to leave a review somewhere to allow others to know that this is a great reel. The reels perform flawless under hook up whether I use the baitfeeder feature or not. I absolutely love the big blue anodized aluminum wheel for a handle. Super smooth all the way around. Spooled both of mine up with 300 yards of blue 40 lb. Power Pro super slick. This is a solid performer
ProsHeavy duty, super smooth, great casting
ConsNone here!!!

Okuma Cedros CJ-65
A good looking entry level reel good for medium to light application. The drag is okay but it could be improved by using carbon fiber washers. Not sure about it's durability.
ProsWaterproof drag with 31 lb drag power, aluminum frame and rotor. Good value for the money.
ConsA bit heavy at 24.3 oz.

Can the 65s handle tuna and marlin up to 100lbs
1 Answers
I cannot say with confidence that the Cedros can withstand fish of that size. Spinning reels I would suggest for Tuna and Marlin of that size would be the Shimano Saragosa and Penn Slammer III.

i want a spinning reel for my shore jigging rod and i dont know which one is the best...okuma cedros cj55s or okuma azures z-55s;
1 Answers
I would go with either the 45 or 55 Cedros, especially if you are jigging. They are lighter reels compared to the Azure, but still have a quick line retrieval. I personally would choose the 55.

June 18, 2015
Does the Cj-80 have an automatic bail or do you have to flip it manually? I bought a Fin Nor Lethal LT 100 for around the same price only to find out that the bail is manual, which I was not interested in. I tried it out for a few weeks, hated it and tried to return it only to be told (by Amazon) that it was past 30 days so I couldn't get a refund. Ended up having to sell it on ebay for $75. So, does this model have manual or auto bail?
1 Answers
Hello Nelson. This reel is indeed an automatic bail. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions.

Why are the okuma cedros spinning reels so cheap? I would just like a straight forard answer; such as if it just isn't in high demand or if there is a serious problem with the reel. Thank you.
2 Answers
Okuma specializes in selling reduced priced spinning reels. An honest straight forward answer is an Okuma Cedros is not going to feel as solid as a Shimano Stradic or new Penn Spinfisher V but it is still an awesome reel and an awesome price. There have been 0 reported issues with this reel.

I was concerned about this when I bought mine although I don't consider $165 cheep! When Okuma first came into the market their reels were cheap! But I have to say for two years now the Cedros has performed flawlessly on big Striper and Bluefish. It's light and this is an advantage when casting all day, but very strong reel when it has to be. The drag is as smooth as the Penns I own. I'm a charter captain and plan on buying a few more of these reels before Okuma realizes they underpriced them! They take a beating, and still work without a problem. Definately not a waste of money!
