- Heavy duty solid aluminum bail wire
- RESII: Computer balanced Rotor Equalizing System
Okuma''''s Centrifugal Disc Bail(CDB) is a unique new design that incorporates a heavier brass disc that is perfectly weighted and balanced to create a smoother and easier bail operation, while increasing the strength and stability of the overall bail function.
The new Okuma technology of graphite bail arm with metal disc embedded also avoids risk of corrosion and electro difference between the bail wire and traditional zinc bail arm.
Reels Epixor XT - Progressive Drag
1-K woven carbon fibre drag knob which reduces weight and creates a more progressive drag setting.
C-40X Carbon Fibre Technology
Okuma’s new C-40X long strand carbon fibre technology utilizes a specially blended graphite polymer. The carbon fibres in this material are elongated and reinforced, creating a substantially stronger composite than standard graphite material. At 25% lighter, 1.5 times stronger and 100% anti-corrosive. C-40X translates into an extremely lightweight and durable construction.
Inspira is made with C-40X long strand carbon fibre frame and sideplate for a stronger and lighter performance.
CFR (Cyclonic Flow Rotor)
Cyclonic Flow Rotor (CFR) was designed to create “cyclonic” airflow, which significantly increases air flow through the ported rotor.
This thoroughly tested design allows for a much faster drying time if the reel becomes wet, minimizing corrosion possibility through out the reel.
CFR also creates a lighter-weight and a more rigid rotor which reduces the flex and rotational coherence and creates a more precise mechanical operation.
Starting as so many companies do as a spin off, in 1987 Okuma had humble beginnings as an OEM manufacturer. The founders came with decades of fishing tackle manufacturing experience, and although small, Okuma has always been a different kind of company. Under the leadership of the president and owner Charles Chang, the company has had a vision and a focus. In the last fifteen years this vision has gained in its intensity. Today Okuma is a driven company with and extremely diverse, loyal and motivated group of employees, agents, and customers. All of whom recognize something special happening here. The Okuma focus is a pure and total dedication to development, raising the standards of what we can produce and what is expected, with an eye always to value. Destined to be one of the premier tackle companies in the new millennium, Okuma does not look for inspiration from other manufacturers, instead we find inspiration in fishermen. From the weekend warrior to tournament pros, we are committed to your needs.
