The Osprey Carbon Edition (CE) is our lightest reel to date. Starting at 8.25 ounces with 22 lbs of drag capacity and 8 Stainless Steel + 2 Eco-Sealed Ball Bearings, there is no other spinning reel like it in its class. This spinning reel was dreamt up by our founders to fuel their obsession for sight fishing big saltwater gamefish in super shallow water with artificial lures.

Smooth as silk

I got the 4000 loaded with 20lb distance braid. Line casts long and smooth. The reel feels great and the drag had been flawless every time.

Water proof and bullet proof

This is the ultimate reel.When a 50 pound goliath grouper made a run for the mangroves 10 feet deep and locked us up in the mangrove roots, the only way I could try and get this epic fish for my client with a lay on my stomach and put the rod all the way underwater submerging the reel. We got the fish and after five minutes of the reel being underwater it works perfectly! I am writing this three months later and it is still perfect! This is the best spin reell I’ve ever used in my life!

Great reel

So far, I am loving the Osprey CE...Now, that being said, I've only had this reel a short time and have yet to use it in salt water. Thus, the reason behind only 4 stars. I will put this reel to the test this year in both fresh and salt water. If my opinion changes, I will edit my review.


Great reel, smooth action and drag. With the Distance braided line, it out casts all my Shimano reels. It's my favorite now.

Very nice

CE 4000 is super smooth, one of the best reels out there right now if not the best in its price range. You can't go wrong here.
