Okuma Impact 80 Surf Fixed Spool Reel

Okuma and Lathams Fishing are two names that would come up in a lot of conversations about bargain fishing tackle. Okuma produce some very usable reels that are often too cheap to be believed. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that there must be times when many anglers don’t even look at them. I mean, a £15 reel can’t be any good, can it?

Yes, it can!

Even by Okuma’s standards, the Impact 80 Surf Fixed Spool Reel is cheap. Here’s what the Lathams site says about it, though:
