Okuma Convector CV-55L Trolling Reel

Pin It


Convector levelwinds and line counters revolutionized the fishing tackle industry, offering a powerful gearing and drag system platform previously unattainable at the Convector's value-oriented price. Today, the Convector has grown to a position as a staple in salmon fisheries from Alaska to the Great Lakes, and as the “go-to” reel for Striper and bottom fishing anglers. The Convector's no-nonsense design features durable brass main and pinion gears, stainless steel reinforcing side plate rings, and Okuma's patented Mechanical Stabilization System that maintains parts alignment over the long term. Line counter models are available in both right and left hand retrieve to serve all anglers.
