No personal experience of this okuma only suffice to say when they first came out i was ordering one from another english company and was advised "not too" by their sales person as a lot had been returned with faults,mind you that was 4/5 years ago.
If its a matter of urgency go for it but if not save up for another few weeks and buy the likes of penn 525 or similar with a good longterm trackrecord.
If you've access to the tackle for sale section on here you will definately get a proper decent reel for your 90 euro .
You're call. 8)

I have caught everything from Tope and Conger to micro Whiting with mine off a boat over the past 3-4 seasons without any problems with the reel. Mice has been battered, the gold finish is worn a lot, but the reel still performs perfectly.

You should be able to get one for less that €90 though ;)

I have one of Okuma 20 reels , really easy to use and so handy to rinse and maintain after a session , the only small fiddly problem i had was a small screw at the nut on the handle which did not seem to thread back to well but the reel is still spot on , and i would recommend it
