Use the the new Metaloid just once in 2014 for some So Cal offshore fishing. Had the reel filled with 50# braid with short floor leader for some live bait action. The reel handled the smaller game fish i encountered and did well on some bottom fishing later in the day. i chose this reel over the Avet SX (i own 2 Avet BTW) as it presented the best value for the amount if drag it produces plus Okuma has great customer service its not too far me. i would highly recommend this reel.
Took the 5NII and the 5II offshore for some Gulf of Mexico bottom fishing and these little reels did everything I wanted them to do. Easily handled Mangrove snapper up to 9lbs, red snapper up to 20, red grouper, amberjacks, unfortunately no gag grouper. I never felt like I was overpowered by the fish.
