[Tech] Self Lubricating Gear System
The self-lubricating gear system is a feature found on Okuma's higher-end star drag reels. The main gear on this system incorporates a heat-sensitive oil-impregnated brass bushing that is mounted in the center of the gear. This system releases oil if friction increases to keep the main gear and drive shaft running smoothly in all conditions. Okuma is the first company to adopt this technology which originated in the large machine industry where this function has been time tested for many years.
