    Hi, has some one ever used Omoto posedion reels?
    If yes can you give me some feedback about them-how they worked in the fish fight- are the gears good-is the drag good? or other features you noticed ( bad or good featuers) .I made this topic becouse I'm planning to buy Omoto posedion 30 2 speed for live bait to get some AJ's . So i need some feedback so I know what I'm buying.

    Thank you very much
    Iman

    just found their website and aparantly they are taiwanese. which is a republic of china. egro the confusion of a "chinese reel".

    i find this quote to be rather appropriate for this situation:

    Quotes from
    Tommy Boy (1995)

    Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec, Ted, why do they put a guarantee on a box? Hmm, very interesting.
    Ted: I'm listening.
    Tommy: Here's how I see it. A guy puts a guarantee on the box 'cause he wants you to fell all warm and toasty inside.
    Ted: Yeah, makes a man feel good.
    Tommy: 'Course it does. Ya think if you leave that box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter.
    Ted: What's your point?
    Tommy: The point is, how do you know the Guarantee Fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy, but we're not buying it. Next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser and your daughter's knocked up, I seen it a hundred times.
    Ted: But why do they put a guarantee on the box then?
    Tommy: Because they know all they solda ya was a guaranteed piece of shit. That's all it is. Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for right now, for your sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality item from me.

    A cheaper Avet.

    -that's akin to saying "a budget Yugo".
