|CDB (Centrifugal Disc Bail)|
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.
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.
|TCA (Torsion Control Armor)|
The one piece Torsion Control Armor (TCA) design made with Okuma long strand carbon fibre found on the new Inspira spinning reel is made with a double arm design which offers high torsion and flex resistance under heavy pressure for static strength. This not only makes the reel lighter but also makes the reel extremely rigid which reduces twist and torque and keeps the internal parts in perfect alignment.
|TCA (Torsion Control Armor)|
Against Body Twist and Torque:
360 degree anti-twist with pressure taken from line roller.
360 degree anti-twist with pressure taken from handle.

Scott Martin Tournament Concept Rods
Helios rods come with a convenient Fuji EZ Moveable Hook Keeper. This lightweight, yet strong hook keeper attaches and detaches from the rod quickly and easily and can be placed anywhere on the rod. It folds down easily when not in use and comes with two different size O-rings to accommodate different rod diameters.
Okuma EVx rods in every category, have always represented a tremendous value to anglers. The materials, components and rod actions deliver a level of quality far in excess of the EVx series retail price. To advance EVx bass fishing rods even further, professional anglers Jacob Wheeler, Matt Arey and Todd Kline were enlisted to detail these technique-specific, tournament fishing rod actions, components and grips, creating the finest bass fishing rods ever developed at this price. These are responsive, balanced, professional-level bass fishing rods that are accessible to all anglers, not only the elite touring professionals. All rod lengths in the line offer two options in power. Within this design, bass anglers are have one power up or down at every rod length to precisely dial-in the needs of each fishing technique and presentation.
Designed for the most serious professionals and recreational anglers alike, technique-specific Dead Eye Walleye rods perform to the highest of expectations. All the bases are covered with a range of jig and float rods, board rods and bottom bouncers. Blank materials are the finest IM-8 graphite on "feel" rods, carbon composite on bouncers, and durable tubular fiberglass on trolling models. Grip designs are purpose specific: Split grips for handling, full cork for bottom bouncer models and hard-wearing but comfortable shrink tube handles for trolling models. Deep, rich gloss brown blanks compliment every fishing environment.
Designed with passion, desire and experience, Okuma SST rods are elevating performance standards throughout coldwater fisheries. Species- and technique-specific actions provide the definitive rod selection for salmon, steelhead, trout, kokanee, halibut and sturgeon. With Okuma IM-8 graphite providing a premium foundation (E-glass in halibut rods), the rest of the components build on SST excellence. Durable stainless steel guide frames feature braid-ready Zirconium inserts. Custom reel seats, premium grips and a gorgeous metallic copper finish complete the SST rod series as one that makes elite level performance available to anglers of all levels of commitment.
Trout, perch and panfish, all of them are more sporting when pursued with balanced equipment that's appropriately powered. Celilo ultralights begin at just 4-1/2-feet in length and continue to 7-1/2-feet. Within that range you can choose the perfect performer for dissecting a weedbed, or soaking floating trout bait on a long cast. Whatever your ultralight passion, Celilo rods deliver great materials and smooth actions that add to the quality of the experience.
