Casts, feels, and looks amazing, performance is incredible! Far greater than a Trinidad! Better drag, gears and construction. The anodizing is very solid and won't get scratched easy allowing corrosion.
Casts irons 100+yrds, feels amazing on retrieve.
ProsQuality Gears Quality anodizing Quality Drag Incredible preformance Very smooth
ConsThis reel is so under rated. I sold off all my Shimanos for Okuma. Don't regret it, won't regret it.

Trinidad killer

The Trinidad is really nice. The Tesoro is much more rigid, powerful, and has more quality components. 6061 T6 aluminum Anodized frame, spool, sideplate. Tsi lubed bearings allowing insane freespool. There booth really nice the Tesoro is just Priced way better than the Trini and it is worth every penny.
ProsLightweight, rigid, high quality design. Incredible freespool, and incredible durability.
ConsI can't think of any.

Been transitioning back to star drags after a love affair with lever drags. Put 2 hard seasons on these as well as competitors from brand D and A. Northern California fair so- sturgeon, salmon, albacore and anything else. These reels are bullet proof. Where I feel these beat the competition is the size of the drive gear, even with the high speed these straight grind
ProsRubber ball is superior to aluminum in cold weather. Freespool for days

High end reel at a great price
September 23, 2018
Recently took this reel out on whole day trip and it performed flawlessly. I spooled my Tesoro 12S with 300 yards of 50lbs power pro braid and top it off with 100 yards of Izorline XXX Super Co-Polymer and then attached a 8 foot leader of fluorocarbon. The free spool is incredibly fast and smooth allowing me to cast out father and get my jig out faster. I used this reel for bottom fishing and casting irons and jigs. Line retrieval is awesome and fast. Drag was more that enough to help me land 3 large Bonitas. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a top quality star drag reel.
ProsConstruction and materials used are top notch. Amazing fast and smooth free spool. Line retrieval is fast and really picks up tons of line. Drag was powerful and very adjustable.

What size reel  would be best for throwing surface irons on a 9ft rod for YT and Tuna?
1 Answer
We do not recommend this reel because of capacity and drag. Check out the Seigler Small Game Conventional reels.

I have seen the TSR5s listed at 11.3 grams and braid capacity 400/50. Your listing is 16.6 and 465/50. Which is correct? Thanks. Bruce
1 Answer
Okuma does not list braided line capacity for the TSR-5S, the number we provide is an approximation. The reel weighs 6.6 oz.

Could you please provide a size comparison of these reels vs the Diawa saltist BG series. I currently own the Saltist BG stard drag 35H and i am interested in the new Tesoro. Thank you for any help.
1 Answer
A good size comparison would be both 10 and 12 size Tesoro reels being in between the 30 and 35 size Saltists.
