Good morning! I got word yesterday that Japan is now accepting orders for Ocea 3000 and 4000 HG and PG. I actually have the 2019 Ocea F 3000HG in stock right now.

I will order 4 pcs of each PG and HG in the 4000 series for stock. If anyone really wants one or more than one, please be in touch asap!

4000PG and 4001PG would be great with at least 40lbs of drag without upgrading the drag plate. Hope a lefty will be available as well.

I have been seeing plenty of links to 2020 saltiga's. I've seen nothing for any 4000pg. Has anyone seen anything about these?

The F custom models have the fall lever (adjustable break).

From Shimano SG:
Finally, the fall lever has found its way onto the Ocea Jigger! With the latest shape of the fall lever, anglers can now control the lever with higher precision. Fall action of jigs can be controlled more easily without having to monitor the fall speed, allowing anglers to focus on detecting bites underwater. The handle knob has also been re-designed to be lighter and give a better grip to anglers so as to facilitate mid-deep games. Complementing the fall lever are the Infinity Drive and Micromodule Gear II to provide a smooth cranking experience. We recommend sizes 1000 and 1500 for mid-deep games and sizes 2000 and 3000 for large games.

Why would you rather have an Ocea Jigger 4000 than a Trinidad 30? The Ocea is a much heavier reel. Is it because the Trinidad isn't made in a PG/lower gear ratio model?

For me anyway, #1. I can’t stand gold reels and won’t ever own one (i get that it’s irrational, doesn’t matter) #2. It’s not simply the 4:1 ratio but the low gear combined with the 39” per crank (perfect for deep dropping) and #3. Spool lock.

I have both the 4kp and a 5kp and weight/size has never been an issue.

People have been telling me that just a couple of ounces of increase in a reel's weight is noticeable by the end of a fishing day. I can't remember ever noticing that but I haven't done any real bottom fishing or jigging in the last 20 or 30 years, just an overnight trip last summer. I only own one bottom fishing reel right now and it's an Accurate Tern 500 and that's a very light reel. I've got two Shimano Torium 16 HGAs for slow pitch jigging and at about 19 oz. people say that's a heavy reel for slow pitch. It can get a bit confusing with all of the opinions floating around but I don't mind it. I like reading and hearing others opinions on most subjects so it's all good to me. Thanks for your response. BTW, what is bottom lock?

Don’t worry about other people’s opinions, just fish. If you like something use it, if you don’t, sell it and try something else until you find something you like.

FWIW, when deep dropping and your reeling up 3 or 4 lbs of lead for the 15th time and the fore grip is on the rail, i promise you, you won’t notice the ounces with the OJ4/5p.

Why not any pics of the 4000/5000p and those specs were the old specs not the new ones . I checked... not to start anything but I haven’t seen anywhere else that there’s any pics of the reels either
