Key Features of OKUMA AVENGER ABF
Okuma tried to design this fishing gear close to perfect. The use of Aluminum and graphite in reel indicates that. The use of die-cast aluminum makes the reel rustproof as we all know ferrous are prone to rust so the aluminum is a good choice and this helps the fishing reel to support its use for a long time. The use of graphite makes it smart keeps it like new after many uses as graphite makes it corrosion resistant to some extent.
6 ball bearings of the tool make the dragging and casting comfortable and enjoyable. The stainless balls are supposed to be helping the user for a long time as there is less chance to get rusted and going out of order in a short time. Getting close to the water but not being rusted is a great thing for metal items.
3. Line Capacity
Depending on the model of this Okuma Avenger the line capacity varies. The line capacity starts from 190/4, 110/6, 90/8 with the ABF 20a model. With the ABF 90a, you get the 590/20, 440/25, 330/30 line capacity. It will help all the users to reach a long distance. With the variant line capacity, the user will be able to go for various types of fishes.
4. Dragging Ability
The dragging ability is also related to the available models of the Okuma. ABF 90a is the heaviest model which is designed to drag about 22 pounds comfortably, whereas there is the lowest model ABF 20a which is able to drag only 8 pounds. So depending on your type of fishing you have to select the models in order to be successful in fishing. It’s all happening for the user because of the sealed compartment of the dragging bolt.

Nothing works fine all the time there should be some problem. Let's try to find out the real performance of this bait feeder reel.
The usage of this fishing reel is really enjoyable because of its weight. The users always love the tool that is lightweight and compact in size. With all the spool and fishing the unit may weigh about 3.5 lbs. It's easy to carry, and also you can set in a tricky way to stay on any stand in freshwater fishing.
The 6 ball bearing mechanisms of the tool makes it simple to turn the handle and get the spools back, but there is a chance that your handle gets damaged while delivery and it does not perform the way it generally does. So there you need a bit of luck.
There is a bolt on the opposite side of the handle which enables the users to control the drag tension and make it comfortable and efficient for the users. When talking about the performance, the construction has to be mentioned. The aluminum alloy material helps it to be rustproof, and the graphite body helps it to be corrosion free which helps it to look like a new piece every time.
2. Ease of use
At first, I loved it for its compact and lightweight structure. It's easy to carry to the fishing spot with other accessories. Setting it up with the fishing rod and coiling the spools is really simple and enjoy. Ball bearing inside the discs helps the users to drag the spools comfortably.
How to use and store?
At first, set the rod with the reel then on the disc tie a knot of the spool after that coil the spool. Then string the rod with the spool and now it’s time to tie the bait with the spool then it’s ready to cast.
Reel needs regular maintenance to perform always in the best way. To maintain it properly, you can open up all the parts and clean them. Gently clean all the parts with a brush. Clear all dirt and dry it up, then grease the bearings.
So far it has been praised by the customers in a great way. In Amazon.com there is over 850 customer review, and most of them have said a positive word about this fishing reel. It brings on the 4.5-star rating, and it shows us that this reel has got all the potential to help its users and bring a smile to its users by helping them in catching fishes.
