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.
Makaira
Design, Drive, Drag and Durability- big game fisheries for billfish, large tuna and sharks will expose weakness in any one of these component systems with disastrous results. Embracing and addressing these four cornerstones, Okuma\\\\\\\'s multi-national design team, in cooperation with Tiburon Engineering, set out to reinvent the offshore reel. The two-speed Makaira series is the result. Advanced, unique and with numerous patents to its credit, Makaira provides uncompromised excellence within every aspect of its design, construction and performance. With sizes to meet the demands of big game fishing worldwide, the Okuma Makaira series sets a standard that will advance the ability and redefine the expectations of tournament crews, long-range anglers and private boaters.

Makaira Abalone

Makaira custom-crafted offshore rods deliver the perfect compliment to the ultimate line up of Makaira and Cedros lever drag reels. Constructed utilizing the latest carbon composite technology, Makaira rods deliver lightweight, easy-handling offshore action that retain the power and durability of traditional E-glass rod blanks. The extensive selection of technique-specific actions utilize the finest components for their intended designs, including:  ALPS  deep press 316 stainless steel guide frames, hard Zirconium guide inserts, custom designed ALPS reel seats, ALP roller guides with large knot clearance, and much more as you explore the live-bait, deckhand style rods, popping rods and IGFA straight butt and bent butt trolling models. Heavy duty and easily maintained shrink tube grip complete most models, while the premium abalone inserts decorate every rod for a look that has been previously reserved for custom builders.

Raw II
\n\n\n

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.

Makaira SEa
The silver etched yellow fin tuna glistens as bright as the sea on top of the dark gun smoke anodized aluminum frame. This reel is as smooth as it is sleek with its Carbonite Dual Force drag system and its helical cut gears. Its over sized handle and lower low speed gearing versus the original Makaira serve up extreme torque for the Makaira SEa. The Makaira SEa is a great edition to the already popular Makaira family which are all backed by a 5 year warranty.

Andros Single Speed

The Okuma Andros two-speed reels were the first designed and constructed from the ground up specifically for 50-pound braided line in big game applications. Their advanced construction continues to grow fans in awe of the power available from such a small platform. New Andros single speed reels make Andros technology more accessible to anglers, and with the addition of a roller bearing for instant anti-reverse; the reel becomes a pure jigging performer.

n

With dual anti-reverse that includes mechanical and roller bearing systems, the Andros single speed eliminates all handle back play, an especially important feature for those fishing high-­speed vertical jigs. For the most common grade of offshore fish anglers commonly encounter, Andros single speed reels provide all the cranking power anglers will ever need.

Azores
OKuma Azores spinning reels are the result of a multi-year engineering review that achieves new levels of strength and stability. Azores begin with proven power features including die-cast aluminum body, side plate and rotor, machine cut pinion gear and the Okuma Dual Force Drag system that churns out up to 44-pounds of max drag. But within the interior is where Azores gains massive separation from competitors. Dual anti-reverse systems, massive oversized spool shaft and grease-packed stainless steel bearings deliver incredible strength while 3-piece carbon fiber Mechanical Stabilization System stops electrolysis in its tracks.
