Hi guys. I have noticed there is a  company on trademe based in australia selling cheap game reels i wouldnt normally be interested but they r so cheap i thought of buying one just for a test out. But i thought i would check first if anyone else has tryed them. They are called omoto.

Ditto. Save your money. Got suckered by the "Designed in Japan" , "Designed in USA" . May have been designed there but sure as hell weren't made there. More like made in china outta melted down plastic cereal animals.

looks like i wasn't the only 1 to waste my money.. bought 1 of there reels i used it for about 30min and now it looks like a nice paper weight.. i think it would be best just to save a bit of extra money and get something you know you can trust.. thats my plan now
