Model: Composition: Cast Aluminum Reel Color: Matte Black
A Slack Line usually means a lost fish. This most often occurs when the fish charges back to you. You can’t reel fast enough to stay tight...and he’s gone. Try a large arbor. You’ll retrieve more line with each turn of the handle.
Made of saltwater durable die cast aluminum with a stainless steel disc drag and palm-able rim to add that extra pressure if needed. Easily convertible from right to left-hand retrieve.
Okuma's large arbor design gives faster line retrieval for a single action reel. traditionally known as a specialty reel, large arbor reels have been fished by the specialists. With the introduction of the integrity, Okuma opens up to the world of large arbor fishing. The Integrity series features a uniquely patented, oversized stainless steel-based disc drag. This amazing drag has little to no initial resistance, with incredible high-end drag pressure. The drag is controlled by an oversized roller bearing, allowing for drag free retrievals.
ALC : AlumiLite construction incorporates Okuma's new aluminum body. Aluminum frames are very rigid and can withstand tremendous amounts of pressure and torque. These frames also provide for precise tolerances between moving parts for ultimate smoothness and durability.
Drag Free Retrieval : The Drag Free Retrieval system allows anglers to crank freely with no resistance by utilizing our corrosion resistant stainless steel roller bearing. This is a one-way roller bearing so the spool is only engaged in one direction. As soon as you spin the handle backwards you have instant drag engagement. By reversing this bearing in the spool, you can quickly change the handle retrieve direction.
Rulidium : This proprietary drag material offers a wide range in drag adjustment with precise high and low settings. These super smooth Rulidium washers reduce heat and friction for maximum performance.
If you cast with your right hand and retrieve with your left hand then you want Left Hand Retrieve.
If you cast with your left hand and retrieve with your right hand then you want Right Hand Retrieve.
Note: Some prefer to use the same hand for casting and retrieving by setting the hook before switching the rod to the opposite hand. This is perfectly acceptable. The important thing is that you retrieve with the hand with which you are most comfortable (fastest retrieve).
Backing Material Information
For a small fee we will put 20# test Dacron backing material by 3M-Scientific Anglers on to your reel.
Be sure to select your retrieve (see above).
Standard Backing is built with advanced 3M technology that allows 3M to create small diameter backing without losing the inherent strength of the backing material.
Exceptionally thin material for more reel capacity
Low coefficient of friction minimizes wear on guides
