I bought two of these reels (Z-40s) and paired then up with 7' medium action rods rated for 15-40lb line. Only after about a year one of the reels completely failed me as the main drive gear slipped and make a the lovely crunching cracking noise as i attempted to reel in the fish on the end of the line. I have to be honest i was heart broken especially because i was down a reel on a trip and because i paid good money for a 4000 series reel that i thought would last at least 5-10 years. the quality is that of a Walmart reel. Very disappointed. these set ups were used for hogfish, mangrove snapper, small grouper fishing off the west coast of Florida. i use diawa BG, Peen Spin-fisher, and would recommend them well before another Okuma.
Proslight weight large drag capacity " at least advertised"
ConsMain Drive Gear slipped making the reel useless. maybe bearing issue causing gear gear to not seat correctly. broke

This is a solid product. Smooth light and there’s no doubt it will handle a bigger saltwater fish for its size yet has a great feel of a smaller reel.
