Has anyone used this guy? I know okuma isnt the best quality, but for the price they are not bad at all! Just wondering what anyone has heard or anything like that...

Boo!!! a centerpin with a drag!? Seriously though, Okuma makes a fine reel. I use a Sheffield and have no complaints about it, so I am sure the Sirata would be a fine reel. There is just something I like about fighting em with my finger. Never gets old.

Friend of mine has it. I have seen it fished many times and even fished it myself.
My vote and the vote of others (including Mepps3 and Driftabugger) is Awsome reel. Looks kinda cool to.
You dont always have to have the drag on. Great for salmon!
If you hook a slob click on the drag. If it's a smaller fish then dont.

I agree that a drag would mean less fun...and crap from your buddies...But having one in some instances would save on knuckles and help your ratio out...Not really looking to buy one...maybe... i was just curious about its performance..you know
I agree that for the dollar Okuma makes a stellar product
There is something about fighting a fish with no drag though...
