BY SPECIES

Epixor

After all, Epixors feature the Okuma BBD blade body design, Alumilite body construction, EOS elliptical oscillation system, aluminum spool and a 10 ball-bearing drive system, all coming together in a rugged, yet beautifully smooth spinning reel.

Cedros Round
Bold and beautiful, Cedros baitcast reels combine with Cedros Coastal rods to create an electric combination sure to bring energy to your next trip. Engineered with premium components throughout, Cedros' outward strength and rigidity provide long-wearing durability through superior alignment of internal components. Available in 250 and 400 size models, Cedros is optimized for braid with an engaged levelwind to assure smooth and even line flow at all times. A swept-in power handle and machined aluminum handle knob reduce wobble and deliver a sure grip when it's time to bear down on near shore bruisers' and make no mistake, that's what the Cedros was designed for.
Starting at $209.99
Serrano
The inspired design and construction excellence of the Okuma Serrano is the result of Okuma's fishery participation and understanding taking the lead on design. Optimized for harsh saltwater conditions, each component addresses not only corrosion resistance, but also the delivery of the drive and drag system strength necessary to take on the most powerful inshore species. Being the lightest, and strongest, and most durable low-profile baitcast reel in the lineup, Serrano specifications are impressive, but even more so is the experience of actually fishing it. Find total comfort in the ergonomic design, in-swept handle and oversized knobs. Take pride in effortless casting. Experience the speed and power of Serrano's responsiveness. Pair Serrano with a C3 rod for a premium matched system, and turn it loose on Stripers, Redfish, Trout, Bonefish, Permit and Calicos, or the complete range of freshwater species.
Starting at $174.99
Citrix
Bold, in both design and its 7.3:1 high-speed gear ratio that's available in both right and left hand retrieve, the Okuma Citrix makes an aggressive statement by itself, and even more so when paired with a matching Citrix rod. The bold strength of Citrix's Alumilite construction frame, A6061-T6 spool and multi-disc drag is tempered by the smooth handling of a ten bearing drive system, micro-click drag adjustment and ergonomic swept-in handle. Need to gear down for brute strength? Citrix is also available for right-handers in a gear ratio of 5.4:1.
Starting at $119.99
Citrix
Can you remove all evidence of weight in a fishing rod while still delivering its? power? Fish an Okuma Citrix bass rod and the answer becomes yes. High modulus graphite blanks set the stage for Alps guides with braid-ready Zirconium inserts. EVA foam split rear grips are feather light and comfortable while the Pac Bay Minima reel seat is barely there. Securely mount a matching Okuma Citrix low-profile baitcast reel or Okuma spinning reel with the precision and strength offered by a custom aluminum threaded cap and the rod disappears as the combination?s balance centers squarely in the hand.
Starting at $119.99
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.
