BY SPECIES
Choosing the perfect rod and reel for a target species can be a daunting task. With the understanding that each species comes in variable sizes and different techniques are best served by different product attributes, we offer the following suggestions to help narrow your search.
Andros 5II
The Okuma Andros was born from a total commitment to maximizing the fishing experience within applications defined by 15- to 40-pound line. Anticipating the use of braided lines, every aspect of Andros' two-speed design has been optimized to deliver capability commonly reserved for reels twice its' size: from drag power to line capacity, from greased Carbonite drag, to Andros' minimal frame rise above the spool. The payoff? Fitting in the palm of your hand, Andros eliminates the bulk that deadens the connection between angler and fish. You're more agile. You feel everything. You experience more of every encounter. Paired with an Andros Jigging rod, the Andros two-speed turns heads both above and below the water's surface with forward-thinking design and exhilarating power.

Quickly, Cedros Coastal rods are becoming favorites of Okuma staff, as their combination of refined action, inherent power and superior handling characteristics are one we gravitate to for an ever-increasing range of applications.

Raw II

As the leader in delivering best-in-class spinning reel performance to anglers of all levels, Okuma Fishing Tackle’s all-new Raw II saltwater spinning reels once again raise the bar. Constructed from a proprietary, highly corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy and featuring Okuma’s Dual Force Drag system with a completely carbon fiber drag stack, Raw II spinning reels take on both the toughest species and harshest environments.
Traditional aluminum alloys rely upon their anodizing to protect them from the corrosive properties of saltwater. Much of the effort in the industry has been placed upon furthering the resistance of the coatings to salt, rather than focusing on the weaknesses of the base material. Raw II spinning reels showcase the release of Okuma’s proprietary T480 aluminum alloy. A completely new, completely unique aluminum alloy, non-anodized T480 shows zero structural damage after 480 hours of continuous saturated salt spray, a timeline on which standard aluminums reach the point of catastrophic failure. Further protected by an anodized base layer, a painted surface layer and the Okuma Corrosion Resistant Coating process, Raw II spinning reels deliver a lifespan many times longer than traditional aluminum, providing avid anglers an aluminum frame and all-aluminum rotor system that will last a lifetime.

Cedros Saltwater

Finally a tournament-quality baitcast reel dedicated to the saltwater environment.  Showcasing Okuma T-480 aluminum alloy, the raw material in the frame and side plates of Cedros baitcast reels stand up to 480 hours of saturated salt spray alternated with air promote corrosion.  This period leaves standard aluminum framing material deeply pitted, yet T-480 shows no corrosion. Not stopping there, the aluminum frame is the anodized and painted, while the side plates are protected using a titanium deposition coating for the ultimate saltwater performer.  Feast on the features, but where Cedros really shines is on the water.
