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.

Solterra
The Solterra is Okuma's broadest line of lever drag reels, with applications from Alaska to Panama and Hawaii to Maine. Building on a base of stainless steel main gears, pinion gears and spool shaft, Solterra's extend outward with anodized aluminum spools and durable, corrosion resistant frames. Models begin at size 10 and continue through 50-wide, delivering an angler-driven selection of single-speed, two-speed, open top, trolling and levelwind models that anticipate every application.

EVx
EVx rods represent our broadest range of refined, technique-specific, tournament quality bass fishing rod actions. Whether slow-rolling a spinnerbait across a submerged point in North Carolina, wormin' shallow stumps in Texas or twitchin' a drop-shot rig thirty-five feet deep in California, you'll excel in every endeavor. Two crankbait rods are made of full fiberglass blank construction, while the rest are Okuma's premium IM-8 graphite for hair-trigger sensitivity and lightning fast responsiveness. Top-end components including ALPS stainless steel guide frames with Zirconium inserts and Fuji reel seats are combined with split grips to reduce weight, while classic understated styling overall serves those who prefer to keep a low profile and let their catch do the talking.

Guide Select Swim Bait
You're either a swimbait angler currently, or you will be in the near future. In either case, Okuma Guide Select swimbait rods have you covered with a concise yet definitive selection of power tools for the job. For closer range work, two 7'6' models deliver in the small (MattLures Bluegills, Rago Hard Raptor, 5- to 7-inch Triple Trout, etc) and medium category (Huddleston Deluxe, 10-inch Triple Trout, 10-inch Castaic Platinums). For longer casting distances, four 7'11' models cover the complete spectrum from small to large (12-inch Castaic, 9- & 10-inch Stocker Trout, Rago Live Trout Softbait). Key components include Okuma EVO Graph woven carbon fiber blank technology that reinforces hoop strength for superior durability and increased sensitivity, and rear leverage grip for positively frightening casting power and distance.
