Getting dialed in on the Makaira Spinning Drag System
Okuma Product Manager John Bretza tells you how to get the pre-set drag system all dialed in on the new Makaira Spinning Reels.
Okuma continues to reinvent big game fishing with Makaira spinning reels, delivering unique, advanced design and new levels of power and longevity. In a stunning display of power, Makaira combines forged and machined aluminum framing, side pate and rotor with a complete forged and machined stainless steel drive system. Twenty-three O-rings and gaskets completely seal the body and drag system from saltwater. And speaking of drag, a Micro Adjustable Power Drag offers a coarse pre-set, with 60-detent points to fine tune up to 66-pounds of available drag to exacting output. Two sizes include a 20,000 and 30,000 for discerning big game anglers.
