    Hi,

    I know everyone is caught up in the bling on the JM reels at present, but any opinions on these? I need a reel that will take 300yds of PE4 and they look like they will fit the bill.

    Is the spool width 21mm on the 2000P as well? Whats the difference between the NR2000P and the regular 2000P?

    The drag may need a little work, I see some comments about fitting cal's drag plate and perhaps aftermarket washers as well, but even on PE4?

    I have the NR2000P great friggen reel much smoother and casts better than any of my Saltiga's. I have 333yds of 40lb suffix with alot of backing. Very sweet reel IMO

    Hey Till,

    ANother big thumbs up for the Ocea Jiggers... I've got 2 x 4000P which are snazzed up like Brets with a JM T-Bar, Cals plate and Carbontex, and a 2000P NR which is likewise tweaked and pimped...

    Awesome little reels, I would defintely go with the NR version of the 2000P.... they come with stock standard drag of about 7 kilos or so, but with the Cal's and Carbontex upgrade, you are looking at closer to 10 kilos or more with some fine tuning.... Do you need 10 kilos of drag on PE 4?? Probably not, but its fun as hell to have if you do! :)

    Awesome reel, you won't regret it!

    The 2000p is the power gear version of the 2000. If you want a narrower spool look at the 1500. While the drag plate isn't necessary, it with carbontex drags will net you 15+Kg of drag; basically doubling the factory specs of 7 Kg. The factory drags are smooth, but there not greased carbon fibre. After the dartanium drag washers wear replace them with greased carbon fibre. The greased carbontex washers will add @ 2kg of increased drag

    Hey Doug,

    Shimano makes size 1000 as well right? how big is size 1000 and what color is the reel?

    Thanks,
    Topper.

    Hmm thanks for all the feedback guys, but I didn't really see one point covered? I'm sure someone knows =)

    Whats the difference between the Ocea Jigger 2000P and the Ocea Jigger NR 2000P?

    Shimano Scorpion Ocea Jigger NR Saltwater Jigging Reel

    On the otherwise great studio ocean marks, the L120's spool is offset from the rod, that doesn't happen on these? Promise?

    What size drag plates for the NR200P size?

    Ta,

    Yeah, its just a bit confusing that the NR 2000P and the 2000P have the same line capacity, I guess its just taller instead.

    I love Shimano's Ocea Jigger range!

    I have a...
    4000P spooled with 400m of Salitiga Boat Braid PE6
    5000P spooled with 600m of Saltiga Boat Braid PE6
    2000P NR spooled with 300m YGK Jigman Ultra PE5

    Have been using the larger reels for around 3 years now and can't fault them. The 2000P NR I have had for about 12months and love it! The only thing I might like changed on it would be a longer handle/crank arm.

    Have used the wee baby models too... the 1500P and the 1500P NR which are wicked little PE3 reels. If my Daiwa Saltiga SA15 ever dies I will replace it with a OJ1500P NR for sure!.

    I'm curious too... What's the difference in 1500P and NR 1500P? :confused: I thought 1500 was already a narrow frame... the OJ version of Trini 16N.

    There is a difference, the 1500Nr and 2000NR are the narrower models. They have the same line capacity and the NR's are heavier. Im assuming thats because there a taller reel.

    Scorpion Ocea Jigger NR

    It even looks like Shimano makes a lower quality Ocea Jigger in the EV models Ocea Jigger EV

    But for 100g extra weight, I think I will stick with the regular 1500 and 2000's.
