    Brand: shimano
    Model: ocea jigger 2001nr

    So thinking about pulling the trigger on an ocea jigger 2001nr left hand. Will use it to jig, tog fish, and sight casting for cobias with it. Would like a left hand conventional setup mainly for casting and and dropping for togs. There's not that much option for left handed reels. I can use both tho. Those of you that own the reel how does it cast? Anyone have any problems? I hear parts are somewhat hard to get if something goes wrong. This correct? Thanks in advance for any info provided!

    wouldn't stress so much about the parts. I think that the ocea jiggers share alot of the same parts as the trinidad series, so they are interchangeable. regarding casting... I never casted one but it has a cast control if you use that and a very light spool so should be pretty good!

    I have a 1000 and a 2000, both I cast jigs out away from the boat with out any difficulties. Being left hand, you don't have many options. A daiwa SA 20L, 30L and the Ocea's are pretty much it for star drags.

    I have a couple... As for the parts almost all parts are available from shimano in California except the auto engage and one bearing that the Ocea's have that the Trinidad's don't.

    I'm the same way, had some Daiwa's and sold them off and bought Ocea jiggers.

    I can in 6 weeks. Lol the 1000 size is equivalent to a Trinidad 10, the 2000NR is the same size as a Trinidad 16N.

    Here is my 2000NRPG next to a SOM L-50. The Ocea has 300m of PE 4 and the SOM has 300m of PE 6

    I'm partial to the Ocea's. A couple new things with the silver ones are an all aluminum right side plate and they have a drag clicker like a spinning reel, actually both of those reels have a drag clicker.

    I was mistaken, I found this pic of my 1000 on a Ichibahn Custom Spinal 150g and its clearly a HG not a PG.

    So the new silver ones are better mechanically than the gunmetal ones?

    If you ever took the drag adjusting star off the old one you know what a pain it is to get back on( there is a trick that makes easier), the new model has a self contained drag adjuster; kinda like a spinning reel spool knob. The new ones have a solid Aluminum right side plate and an extra bearing somewhere(don't have an old one with me to compare location). The new one has the X ship gears, there fairly smoother and thicker than the older style gears. The new one has a drag clicker that's nice. The auto engage is a little different and engages at a different handle location (if my memory is correct).

    So I would say yes it's mechanically better, but the older models are still excellent reels and I would have a tough time selling off the older ones just to get the newer one unless you just have to have the newer models. Or wanted a left hand reel.
