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.
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.

C3-40X

The original introduction of Okuma C3 rods rocked the fishing tackle industry with split grip designs constructed from graphite cones for long-wearing durability and the most sensitive rod an angler could take hold of. C3-40X rods build upon that initial excellence with lighter, better balanced and more sensitive rods than ever before. The heart and soul of C3-40X rods are incredibly responsive, extra-fast action 40-ton carbon blanks. Not to inhibit the blank material, refined split grips with the fore grip being eliminated, ALPS Titanium guide frames, and Pac Bay Minima reel seats keep every bit of power, yet shed every extra ounce of weight. A moveable Fuji hook keeper allows for angler placement in the most ergonomic and advantageous position.  FLW Champion Scott Martin comments on C3-40X rods as truly unbelievable, with the 7'11" models being the "best balanced" rods that exist.

Tarvos
Many in the recreational fishing community are not interested in chasing the latest cutting-edge advancements in fishing rod construction. These anglers simply want great performance from proven materials, and access to them at prices that represent an exceptional value for their dollar. If this is you, Tarvos are your rods, as perhaps the best fishing rods ever constructed for their price. 
Tarvos rods begin with durable medium/medium-fast graphite composite blanks that are exceptionally lightweight.  Stainless steel guide frames with titanium-oxide inserts add to the quality, and split grip EVA foam handles with a non-slip composite cork butt cap complete these beautiful rods.

Komodo


The Komodo Dragon dominates every environment it enters and anglers will discover the same apex predator power from the Komodo low-profile baitcast reel. With high-speed retrieve models in both right- and left-hand retrieve as well as a powerful 5.4:1 crankin' model in right hand, the Komodo steps out with a full aluminum gearing system that's both incredibly strong and exceptionally light weight.  With AVEC-5 spool bearings as part of an 11-bearing system, the Komodo still weighs just 6.5-ounces overall. Regardless of your target species, Komodo will impress every day.

Starting at $199.99
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. 
Starting at $249.99
Krios
Constructed on a rigid aluminum frame and featuring dual cast control systems (an external magnetic and internal centrifugal) that anglers of all levels can fine tune to their precise needs, the Krios puts top-end features like high-speed 7.3:1 gearing in a powerful, easy-to-own package.  Available for both right and left-handed anglers, Krios 6 bearing system will out compete any reel in its class for casting distance, cranking power, and certainly for jaw-dropping good looks. Okuma's CRC or Corrosion Resistant Coating process protects Krios in all environments.
