Technology and Video Review

As we promised the video of the baitfeeding and drag system can be found below. We would also like to mention the 5 main technologies that are include in the build and design.

The video uses the Okuma Avenger ABF-50 and 65 models to describe and demonstrate the baitfeeder and drag systems, these systems are present on all six different models/sizes of this reel.

The 5 Technologies include

Quick Set Anti-Reverse - Provides instant hand engagement when the fish is on and eliminates wasted time with back play, providing you with the ultimate hook set mechanism.
RES II Rotor Equalizing - Precision is the name of the game. With the help of computer technology a rotor weight was perfectly placed inside to eliminate spool wobbling, as a result you are provided with enhanced cranking ability.
EFR II - Less line friction and frustrations.
Hydro Block - Keeps the water and other junk out of the drag system so the reel always preforms at optimal levels.
Baitfeeding System - A duel drag system, watch the video above to learn exactly how this works.

Conclusion – Worth the Money

Yes! The Okuma Avenger ABF Baitfeeder reel is definitely worth the money. Did you see how many 5-stars it was given by customers in the image towards the top of the page? For right around $50 this is definitely a reel with a lot of value.
