Great size and smoothness
October 18, 2022
My initial concern was that this reel was going to be hard to grip with my left hand palm, After a few trips of trying it out and hooking up, the size was not an issue and it fit comfortably on my left hand during jigging. Additionally, the crank on the Ocea was smooth and the handle grip made it easy to get solid cranks in on a decent size fish. Solid reel
ConsReel can be used for live bait fishing but the automatic engagement on the handle after one crank, limits the reel's ability to cast. Unless the handle is held in place, casting is not and option and therefore so is a live bait cast. Reel really is only meant for jigging. Sinker rig is an option for live bait fishing

Smoothest reel on the market. Effortless retrieve, even on 30-40lb fish. Compact and light. Just a pleasure to fish.
ProsSmooth and powerful. Star drag has more click stops than a Trinidad. Compact and light.
Cons5 more lbs of drag would be nice, though you’re fine without it. EVA ball knob handle would be a nice option for those using this for tog and not slow pitch fishing.

This is my primary jigging reel set up
April 26, 2020
I use both the 1500 and 2000NRHG frequently. I like it more that valiant 500N by accurate. so smooth, reliable, strong. great inches per crank, good drag. One draw back: careful on the cast because the handle will spin around and close the bail and then...DUCK! I have grown accustomed to opening my bail and pressing my knuckles against the handle when I cast with the drift. I won't use anything else personally!
ProsSMOOTH!!! great inches per crank enough drag to stop big fish looks awesome light weight
Conshandle winding and closing bail on a cast

I was happy when Shimano released this reel here in the States. I have to say, I was looking at purchasing a JDM version prior to it's release, but as most know, Shimano and other U.S. based brands won't touch their companies JDM products. It is extremely smooth, and reeling up from depth with a 400 or 500g jig and a fish, is not a problem. I'm waiting to see how well it works on large fish.
ProsVery, very smooth when reeling.
ConsNone so far.

Shimano’s best or Daiwa’s Best??
January 12, 2020
Difficult to say which one is better... Ocea Jigger 1500HG has automatic clutch return and drag sound. Those 2 are better than Saltiga 15H. But, Saltiga was released in 2015...

The Shimano Ocea Jigger is a rock solid, compact beast of a reel. Combining Rolex level precision with power and features. Whether you're fast jigging or slow jigging. Tog jigging or just bottom fishing. This thing is a precisely engineered monster. there's nothing it's equal. Love how shimano has made this a very high performance reel in this price range
