|Mechanical Stabilizing System (MSS)|
The Mss Mechanical Stabilizing System for spinning reel is new exclusive Okuma technical design, the carbon plates increase the stability as well as help eliminating the vibration, integrally the MSS makes the reel running mechanically perfect.
|Dual Force Drag System|
DFD incorporates both surfaces of the spool to maximize high-end drag pressure, efficiency and overall smoothness. Mounted in the top of the spool and protected by the Hydro Block system is a multi-disc felt drag system that works in conjunction with a secondary drag system that is mounted under the spool. Even pressure is applied to both surfaces of the spool for maximum stability and significantly increased drag output compared to traditional single drag systems.
|Knurled Spool Design|
Knurling band on spool arbor increases friction and provides a locking point for braid which eliminates slipping and the need for backing resulting in maximum line capacity.
|AlumiLite Construction (ALC)|
Rigid die cast aluminum body, side plate and rotor: AlumiLite Construction incorporates Okuma's rigid aluminum body technology, alum frames are stronger and more rigid and are capable of withstanding more pressure and torque than traditional graphite frames. These lightweight, die cast alum frames provides more precise tolerances for precision gear aligment, maximum stability and ultimate durability.
|Aluminum Material with Strong Anti-Corrosion Feature|
The unique feature of its anti-corrosion characteristic performs extraordinarily well and is with resistance of 50% stronger than the general material in the market.
|High Performance Bearing (HPB)|
6 high performance ball bearings provide Azores with outstanding smoothness and reliability in saltwater fishing environments. The balls used on the HPB's are constructed from the same high-grade stainless steel material as the bearing housing.
|Machine Cut Aluminum Handle|
A rigid machine cut aluminum handle arm increases cranking power and performance. Ergonomic oval handle knob offers comfort for all fishing conditions.
|Oversize Main Shaft|
A thicker main shaft and robust metal bushing can withstand 3 times the axial impact pressure of traditional designs.
|Dual Anti-Reverse System|
The Azores features Okuma's trusted Quick Set anti-reverse system and a backup multi-stop anti reverse system for increased durability and reliability in all fishing conditions.
|Pinion Gear Supported With 2 Ball Bearings|
An extra bearing supports the pinion gear for improved gear meshing and smooth transfer of power under heavy pressure.

Cedros Speed Jig rods amplify your success within every aspect of rod performance. At the top of the list is rod action. Designed for specific jig weights, Cedros Speed Jig rods extract maximum attraction from jigs at every point in the presentation. Upon the strike, E-glass banks absorb the shock produced by low-stretch braided lines while reserving the necessary power to bear down on large fish. Comfort throughout is provided by lightweight split grips that do not chaff the body when jigging and are highly agile through the fight. Providing total security are ALPS pyramid shaped machined aluminum reel seats and ALPS high-rise 316 stainless steel guide frames with Zirconium inserts. Take hold of the ribbed EVA fore grip, release the jig from the included jig cincher and introduce yourself to your new favorite rod.
SCT Mooching rods will appeal to those anglers who want the very best-of-the-best. SCT stands for Spiral Carbon Technology and it’s a core feature of ultra-premium SCT Mooching rods. SCT is a double helix wrap of pure carbon thread from tip to butt of the rod. Each carbon thread is comprised of as many as 6,000 micro strands of carbon. SCT reinforcement protects the blank beneath from both exterior damage, and interior stress when under load, by resisting ovaling. Ovaling is then a rod blank is taken out of its round shape when under heavy pressure. When rod blanks go out of round, they lose an exceptional amount of strength, becoming the number one cause of structural blank failure. SCT rods dramatically increase strength and durability. Every other component of SCT Mooching rods are also the best they can be. The guide system features Fuji double-foot SV guide frames with “O” ring inserts. The handle system includes custom Okuma 3K woven carbon fiber fore and rear grips. Okuma carbon fiber grips provide a positive grip, superior durability, exceptional good looks and clean up with minimal effort.
Cruz popping rods deliver a balanced approach to rod materials, length, power and action to create a fishing system where everything from giant tuna to trevally are taken with confidence and control. Featuring small diameter blanks constructed of a blend of graphite and glass and outfitted with premium components, Cruz are a beautiful example of the future of offshore popper fishing. Components favor braided lines with ALPS 316-grade stainless steel double-footed guide frames with small diameter Zirconium to quickly transition line loops from the reel to straight running line for extended casting distance. The handle assemblies feature custom ALPS aluminum reel seats, EVA fore and rear grips and low-profile butt caps on medium and medium/heavy models, machined aluminum gimbal on heavy model.
