SPOOLING/RIGGING:

Please note, you will see many spooling options for the reels listed below. It's not our intent to confuse folks, but you do have options here unlike some places and we take pride in the fact we can rig things according to your needs, applications and preferences. We have been pioneers in Super Braid / Spectra rigging and we offer a few methods of rigging the lines together beyond most retailers capability, including the standard long range Bimini to Albright knots, Served and Sato connections. We do not use simple uni-to-uni knots for connecting braid to leader, we take the time to make a better knot, one that will hold up over time and deal with larger fish. Simpler knots don't work as well. You can see videos of what we do on our YouTube channel - CharkBaitUSA. We can upgrade that connection to one of several options, the benefit with those connections is that the diameter is thinner and that allows the line to flow through your rod's guides more smoothly, has less resistance in the water and is stealthier. If you have questions regarding rigging, please give us a call or zap back an email and we can go over things with you. Bottom line, you have options with us and we're proud of our staff's ability to rig things to your needs rather than simply "slapping" things together. Our knots hold, as does our in-line rigging.

Okuma Makaira Spinning Reels
NOW IN STOCK!

First Introduced at 2016 ICAST - now finally here!

The new Makaira Spinning Reels will put some much deserved heat into the high end spinning reel marketplace.  These new reels have some other manufacturers worried. Okuma focuses on the four D's, design, drive, drag and durability as core performance elements. That's the underlying design philosophy behind all new models coming from this giant. The new Makaira spinning reels are built from the ground up to be the toughest, most durable spinning reels an angler can own. They are constructed from the finest and strongest materials available. Just as the Makaira conventional reels turned the industry on it's head, so too will these new spinning reels, for good reason:

- Forged aluminum machine cut body/sideplates
- Forged aluminum machine cut Cyclonc Flow rotor
- Forged stainless steel main gear for power and strength
- Oversized 17-4 grade stainless steel spool shaft - less flex
- Precision machine cut stainless steel pinion gear
- Hydro Sealed Body and Dual Force Drag system for maximum protection
- Carbonite high output drag with Cal's drag grease on full DFD
- Customized Pre-set drag system, works like a lever drag reel
- 9HPB - 1 RB all corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings
- Dual anti-reverse system for maximum strength and reliability
- Quick-Set stainless steel German anti-reverse roller bearing
- CRC corrosion-resistant coating process
- Machined aluminum 2 tone anodized spool with LCS lip
- Machined aluminum screw in handle arm for added strength
- Right and Left hand models use different handles, greater security and strength, for user flexibility
- Heavy duty, solid aluminum bail wire with manual trip
- Machined aluminum handle knob: custom options will be available

- Last but not least, Makaira Spinning reels are backed by a 5 year limited warranty!

Those are some serious features, and they don't tell the full story about these all machined aluminum framed, sideplate, rotor, spool beasts. These are powerful spinning reels like none other on the market - they are more like tanks than coffee grinders! Okuma took the fine points of their industry leading Makaira conventional reels and put 'em on a spinning! The Makaira drag system is unique, takes advantage of the complete surface area of the carbon fiber drag washers; making full contact with the carbon washers for maximum efficiency and drag output. The DFD (dual force drag concept) applies pressure to both sides of the spool in order to maximize use of the available surface area. Enlarging the working surfaces of the drag system dramatically improves heat dissipation. These reels are engineered to withstand the harshest conditions the ocean can offer. Makaira spinning reels have 23 different oil retaining o-rings and gaskets, water tight, all the internal mechanisms are sealed and protected from salt. The result is the best-of-the-best when it comes to big game fishing reels.

 

The spools are made for braid, non-slip (however we'll still treat the spool as we normally do to ensure no-slipping). Note the "pre-set" for the drag system at the top of the spool, similar to conventional leverdrags. Also, these reels are available for left OR right hand retrieve. All one really needs to do to change is to order the alternate handle and swap sides for the crank cover - easy and strong. (Unlike inexpensive reels that allow for an easy change, there's an inherent weakness which Okuma avoids in their design.)

Okuma CORONADO CDX
2018 Introduction - Here Now!
 

First time I saw this reel, felt it, I was thinking $200-300. I was very wrong, Okuma is aggressive in building their share of the sportfishing reel business. These new reels are a bargain, but I'll hold off on the particulars for a bit as we go over what's so darn trick about these new reels.

Cosmetically, the new Coronado follows the design theme of Okuma's best - their Makaira spinning reels. They are indeed nice looking reels but the beauty is more than skin deep. These are bait feeder design reels, the Azores offer non-baitfeeding type operation with some similar benefits as the Coronado. So, skip down to the Azores if this feature does nothing for you. But, if you want the bait operation benefit of a baitfeeder, this is the piece for you.

FEATURES:

Okuma's baitfeeding syhstem allows anglers to disengage their spinning reel spool and allow bait to run freely. The baitfeeding system incorporates a secondary micro-adjustable drag system at the rear of the reel to allow for precise adjustment of the spool for bait control. In order to disengage this system, simply turn the handle. The on/off lever on the rear of the reel will automatically disengage the baitfeeding system so you can fight your fish with the main drag system. Pretty clever I'd say. The drag adjustment is also located at the rear of the reel. Check the 3D image to see those details.  Operation of the reel is direct, simple, ergonomic and very functionally laid out for intuitive use at a high performance level. No doubt these are very nice reels to own, and no doubt they are not Makairas which cost many multiples of the price of the Coronado CDX. But, make no mistake, these are very capable reels with performance well above what other manufacturers offer anywhere near their price.

Okuma AZORES
2015 ICAST Introduction
 

This is another key ICAST product introduction for 2015 from Okuma, with a larger size added at 2015's ICAST show. These are dedicated saltwater reels, made from die cast aluminum for strength, and to reduce corrosion they also make use of carbon fiber internally to shield against electrolysis where dissimilar metals meet. Strong machined aluminum handle, dual force drag system for greater drag capability, designed for use with braided lines. The spool shaft is also over sized, again to deal with increased drag pressures - which these reels can indeed produce. The reels also have a non-slip spool, so your braid won't spin on the spool when under pressure, and excellent bearings designed for saltwater applications. Great new reels, excellent features, rock solid design, and they are priced aggressively.

Cedros Spinners

Specifically designed for saltwater use, the Cedros spinning reels feature a rigid aluminum body and roter. Okuma's Dual Force Drag System for extreme stopping power and proprietary High Density Gearing with special corrosion resistant coating provide power and long term satisfaction in a harsh saltwater environment. Combine all this with a high speed gearing ratio and a customized aluminum jigging handle and you have one of the best saltwater jig fishing reels on the market. For guys vertical jigging, this is a dandy choice due to it's metal construction (frame, sideplate, rotor, spool) and very high drag capability.

Okuma Trio

I first saw this new spinner at the ICAST show in July 2009, and thought at that time that Okuma had another winner on their hands. (They really have turned things around from a few years ago in terms of fresh ideas AND quality design and production). Okuma made a cosmetic and slight refinement to the Trio in 2012, image reflects that. The new Trio series offer high drag capability, strong construction, made for Spectra, unique aluminum/graphite hybrid-crossover construction and priced right. The reel utilizes graphite as well as aluminum to create a new generation of reels - similar to what we're seeing on some race oriented cars these days. This allows for high strength as well as lighter weight by design. All factors combine nicely to create a very interesting series of reels.

Crossover Construction
Innovation at it's freshest...the new Trio spinning reels from Okuma feature an unique crossover construction. They took the best from aluminum construction and lightweight graphite materials and created a distinctive new concept in reel design. The solid one piece stamped aluminum reel stem and rotor arm are paired with lightweight graphite sideplates and rotor housing, which provide strength where needed, and weight savings where possible. the Trio spool construction utilizes a multi-piece construction, housing the drag system in an aluminum drag chamber for added stability and smoothness, while utilizing a lightweight graphite housing for weight reduction and distinctive styling.
