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 Speed Jig
Okuma Andros rods were developed in concert with the Andros 5II lever drag reel as a highly advanced vertical jigging platform. The reel is astonishing, and so too are the rods. In order to shed weight without losing power, Andros rods feature parabolic blanks constructed of IM-6 graphite. Each model is crafted in two-pieces with a handle ferrule connection that delivers one-piece rod performance while allowing for easy travel to worldwide destinations. Split rear grips eliminate chaffing when employing an underarm jigging stroke. The highly custom Alps machined aluminum casting reel seat is designed for use without reel clamps. A custom locking nut secures the reel and machined finger grooves provide a positive and ergonomic grip. Completed with Alps 316-SS guide frames with Zirconium inserts, Andros rods maximize opportunities suitable for up to 50-pound braid.

Cedros Jigging

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.

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.
