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. Our bass casting recommendations are based on tournament fishing.

The longer and harder you fish the more you notice the nuances of weight and balance in your equipment. Packing the full power of an aluminum frame, handle side side plate, spool and gear system, the Helios defies gravity, weighing in at just 6.3 ounces, but delivering all the muscle. As the ultimate compliment to Helios rods, the combinations begin at less than 10-ounces total, offering a balanced system that can be fished comfortably, all day and every day.  Oversized EVA grips, carbon fiber handle and cast control accessed through the Spool Access Port complete this tournament-bred competitor with phenomenal ergonomics. 
Starting at $219.99
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.

Helios Air
The all-new Helios Air, trims more than a half-ounce from high-speed Helios low-profile reels to strengthen the connection between angler and fish by minimizing the presence of the gear that comes between. The Helios Air reels are impressive due to the total weight of the reel coming in at 5-7 ounces which falls into the featherweight category. The frame and the the side plates of the Helios Air are constructed from magnesium; maintaining all the structural integrity as well as offering an ergonomic full feel in the palm of your hand. Helios Air is designed and constructed for freshwater use and comes complete with Okuma's 3-Year Limited Warranty.

Cerros Lowprofile

In the hand, Cerros takes a deep seat in the palm. The left side plate is 3mm narrower than any previous Okuma design, bringing the angler’s grip more in line with the rod and offering increased confidence overall. The machined aluminum frame serves as a powerful foundation for the hand while EVA knobs greet the cranking hand with cushioned comfort. Nine bearings plus Quick-Set anti-reverse bearing set free enhanced casting distance from the machined aluminum spool and ultra-smooth cranking while delivering authoritative hooksets. Anglers appreciate a full 24-point magnetic cast control and Cerros’ optional 6.6:1 or 7.3:1 gear ratios.
