I've got them on a set of 11ft's and they are fine, maybe size wise they will look too big on 10ft's but they weigh less than 90% of other reels so should balance ok plus if you are mainly going to fish big pits you will probably end up getting some 12/13ft rods in the future

Just got some Okuma 8k's off of them as well, turned up Wednesday. They look and feel proper solid.

As you probably discovered there is a thread running on the tackle section
https://www.carpforum.co.uk/Shared/Messages.asp?TopicID=439856

Tbh for 10ft rods Id say these are too big going by the spool size, youd be better off with mini big pits

Forgive me for bumping an old thread but im guessing you have been using the obsidians for some time now.

Would you recommend them?

I have my eye on these as im getting back into fishing and where i am living now, there is a lot of big pits so my 10ft xtractors + INC6000 arent gonna give me the distance.
