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.
VSystem
The VSystem Spinning Reels are Okuma's marquee spinning reels that are setting the standard for spinning reel technology and represent the ultimate spinning reel technology available. Built on the foundation of our patented EOS elliptical oscillation drive gears, this revolutionary oscillation system offers superior line lay while maintaining unmatched stability, thanks to the elliptical shaped gears which are constantly engaged during the oscillation cycle. The VSystem also features the new and revolutionary Dual Force Drag system, DFD. In addition to the traditional multi-disk system, it has a large drag system mounted beneath the spool, which by equalizing the drag force, stabilizes and dissipates heat, providing smooth drag under extreme tensions. VSystem reels also features up to 16 bearings; a combination of both the Extreme Elements Bearings and the High Performance Bearings, for smooth fishing and anti-corrosion wear. Finished with a forged aluminum screw in folding handle and matching machined spare spool, the VSystem is the defining range of spinning tackle.

Cedros High Speed
Jigging for tuna, snapper and jack species requires high-speed backed by high-strength. The Okuma Cedros high speed spinning reels deliver on both. Okuma Blade Body Design maintains a comfortable, compact body size while Alumilite Construction assures formidable strength. Okuma's precision Dual Force Drag system lends extremely smooth, highly capable and balanced stopping power. Whether pulling fish off wrecks, or stopping tuna determined to dive into the abyss, Cedros' exciting styling only lends to the adrenaline-filled experience of connecting with the ocean's most powerful creatures. Pair Cedros spinning reels with Cedros Speed Jig or Cedros Coastal rods for a matched system that excites the senses and begs to be fished. 

*Specifically designed for saltwater use.

Cedros Baitfeeding Standard Speed
Cedros Baitfeeding standard speed spinning reels operate on gear ratios of 4.8:1 instead of the high speed versions 6.2:1 and 5.7:1 gear ratios. With less aggressive gear ratios, reel torque and cranking power are increased. Outside of applications where the high-speed is a necessary part of the fishing technique or necessary to keep up with extremely fast fish, the standard speed will be a highly capable companion for bait fishing and lure casting techniques. The standard speed Cedros models are immediately identifiable by their blue anodized, stamped aluminum handle arms, so that should you have both, you can jump between the reels immediately based upon which better suits the specific technique.

Cedros Baitfeeder
For many species like sailfish, tuna, yellowtail and even freshwater catfish, serving up a live or dead bait is best done on an unrestricted, free-flowing line. The patented Okuma baitfeeding system allows for exactly that. With a flip of the switch the reels drag system is disengaged, allowing for fish (or a live bait) to take line directly from the spool with the bail closed. Turning the reel handle or again flipping the switch re-rengages the drag system.  For fish that it's best to offer them time to take the bait prior to them feeling any resistance, the Cedros Baitfeeder will become a cherished piece of equipment for its ease-of-use and reliability.
