A good reel at a good price
A very good reel, at a reasonable price. Satisfactory capacity (MK-50II), very good handle, can be used with braid or mono lines, I truly recommend it.
ProsPositive feeling during the fight Durable drag system loud clicker Durable metal construction
ConsIt could be a litle bit lighter

Mak15ii built like a tank
I only go charter boat in San Diego, got the Mak15ii and it is overkill for yellows, I am hoping to catch something bigger soon.. Otherwise I just winch them yellows to the boat easily, the smooth drag and dual speed make it very capable avoiding sharks and seals. Looking to get the Mak16/Mak20 when I do more than 1.5 days
ProsLike they said, built like a tank and customer service is the best.
ConsLittle Heavy if you?re a wimp

I have been wanting one of these reels for years never had got around to getting one though. So I finally pulled the trigger and ordered one when I got the reel it was just what I expected got it 2 days earlier than what I was suppose to tackle direct does a great job with shipping I have to add. I spooled this reel with 100lb mono for a topshot and 1000 yards of 100lb power pro braid for backing....and the drag oh my goodness the drag so smooth and very very strong 85lbs of drag on a 50w is insane in my opinion cannot wait to get some sharks on the beach with this beauty of a reel.
Pros85lbs of drag Line compacity Great looking reel
ConsAbsolutely nothing

Best Lever Drag 2 Speed Reel
I own Accurate DX2, BX2, Shimano Talica II and Okuma Makaira and I would rate the Makaira as the best. An absolute tank with such a smooth and consistent drag and enormous cranking power. This reel does not disappoint. Once you've used this, you wouldn't want to touch Accurate and Shimano again.
ProsGreat Design Smooth and consistent drag enormous cranking power.
ConsLimited colours

Unexpected quality
This reel lived up to the raving reviews given by anglers on the west coast as a tuna slayer. Fit and finish is great. Line capacity is perfect for tuna under 200# (500yds 65# spider wire plus 25yds of 80# fluorocarbon). Had drag set at 22# full but never had to push it past strike to land several 75# class Louisiana yellow fin.
ProsSuper smooth drag. Tbar offset handle. Smooth shifting between low and high rear while under heavy drag. 4.7 to 1 high speed gear ratio.
ConsA little heavy when compared to an Avet LX and HXJ. Reel seat clamp does not screw into reel frame. I prefer that design. The drag curve is very steep so it limits the range of drag settings.

I purchased 2 Barrett shark rods . I asked Peter Barrett for his reel recommendation . Peter stated he owned 2 Makaira 80wii on his personal rods so I bought one . This reel is extremely powerful and can land large fish . Very large fish . It gets the sharks in before they are to far gone to recover and released .
ProsWill winch in 10 foot tigers ! It looks amazing

The Mighty Monster.....
That's what I call this 10II, it is perfect for those tough fighting fish without the size and weight of the larger 30's...
ProsLight Weight Tough Build 2 Speeds Great Handle Ultra Smooth
ConsSeat doesn't fit all rods.

The best
In my opinion, the Okuma 30/50 is the best reel in this size class. The drag is ridiculous, and is super smooth. Having fished extensively with Avet, Penn and Tiagras, these reels take the cake. They are worth the few extra dollars.

Solid Reel
This reel felt like a tank when I picked it up. It is very solid, tough, but it is also very smooth. Great drag system (the new double drag system). Very beautiful design as well. My only complaint is that the Makaira 10 was a little heavy and wide for its class. Other than that is was absolutely perfect.
ProsDependable Doube Drag System Sturdy Nice Cosmetics Very low gear ratio for that extra torque Great 2 Speed system
ConsLow Line Capacity Wide spool Heavy for its class

Best 80WII on the market
Ive been using these reels the past season bluefin and shark fishing. These reels are the cats pajamas- drags work perfect under stress and heat and don't get hot like my avets. Used to fish some penn 80stw reels and these babies outperform in terms of flawless operation, smooth drags and ergo handle. Thumbs up to Okuma- they spared no expense on the design of this reel. Cals reel grease and carbon washers come standard. Best reel for offshore currently on the market.
ProsBuild quality, two speed button, operation of reel handle and smooth drag

I have been Marlin fishing with several reel brands at the same time and find these reels to be lighter than most with no substitute for strength, everything feels good under power and all in the right place. They got it all right.
Prosfunctionality A1
Conscolor and coating finish could be more classy

Good afternoon I am looking for a spare part for a Okuma Makaira 5011. It is a gear I believe. It is round with numbering on it and little finger grips around its circumference. I hope that you can help me. I am no fisherman at all so I have attached photos to describe the spare part I need. Do you stock spare parts for this reel? Regards Matt Glitz
