I was afforded the opportunity to review Booms Fishing Omani Spinning Reel 2000, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives as shown.
Lol, when the reel arrived, my older son who is 21, went over the reel. When I told him the cost, he about died, said I was lying. That cracked me up. My son, who is single, spends a fortune on top of the line fishing equipment, and that is all he will use. So, we have a lot of high end equipment to compare it too. This reel reminds me of some of his Shimano reels. This reel has 10 +1 Stainless Steel Ball Bearings, which makes for smooth action. It is also equipped with Equipped with a front drag system, anti-reverse roller bearing and anti-tangling line roller. You can use it both left and right handed with the left/right retrieve. With this reel we experienced that the ball spring works as smoothly as most reels when flipping it over. The handle travels back very little and is pretty tight. Our reverse lever is working as it should. The drag increases and decreases smoothly. There is a slight flex in the frame and handle, but is expected from Carbon Fiber. My son thinks the collapse mechanism for the handle is a little on the weaker side though. With the weather we have been having, we haven’t been able to give it solid fishing time, unfortunately. This reel can easily handle the salt water though. It has a Carbon Fiber body and double-anodized aluminum spool. The salt won’t effect this reel. As usual though, make sure you clean your gear down after use. The handle has the usual EVA cushioned handle, so it’s comfortable to operate. The price point it’s at is unreal. If you are looking for a solid fishing reel, I definitely recommend this one. It’s perfect for anyone’s price range.

I do not sell these reels, and I do not benefit in any way from sales.
