OKUMA Custom Black CB-60 Reel

 The Okuma CB-60 really does look the part. With its exceptional understated and, dare I say it, carpy cosmetics, the Custom Blacks boast great performance in a compact yet durable bundle.

In addition, I simply love the excellent value for money, making this a truly affordable, functional big pit reel. It has a super-fast clutch, sealed bearings and a wooden handle that has been outfitted with a weight on one side, so it always angles down so you don’t have to align your handles perfectly every time. Its machine-cut anodised spool, along with its quick-set anti-reverse ball bearing and worm shaft transmission, are all complemented by its Hydro Block system and even flow roller. Having received these in the last few weeks, I look forward to putting them through their paces over the coming months and trying out some of the key features for myself. Absolutely packed with top-of-the-range features and specifications, the Okuma CB-60 is an excellent purchase for anyone looking for an affordable reel that will suit both the beginner and the more experienced carp angler in the modern world of carp angling.

RICHARD SHENTON’s VERDICT “For under £60 these reels do take some beating!” FIRST IMPRESSIONS 8/10 VALUE FOR MONEY 9/10
