The revolutionary Precision Elliptical Gearing design is patented in a number of countries around the world and is the soul of the Okuma mid to upper-end spinning reel range.

The Precision Elliptical Gearing design uses elliptical shaped oscillation gears which provide exceptional line lay, improved smoothness and maximum long-life durability. The Precision Elliptical Gearing gears are always engaged and provide a very smooth spool stroke, eliminating the spool from jumping as commonly found on many reels.

  • Multi-disc Japanese oiled felt drag system
  • 7BB+1RB corrosion-resistant stainless steel ball bearings
  • Quick-set anti-reverse roller bearing

  • Rigid, forged aluminum handle design with EVA handle knob
  • Hydro Block watertight drag seal

Bought this to replace an aging Shimano Spheros 8000FA. Most other 8000 model reels I looked at were pretty heavy, including the latest Shimano Spheros 8000SW. At 18oz, this reel is light and can cast lures all day without fatigue. Not only that, but I was able to get the reel for almost 50% off. I love Tackle Direct!!!
ProsLightweight, smooth drag, well balanced on rod

Bought this for my 6 year old son and paired it with okuma cedros in shore rod for jigging fluke and works great. Nice and light weight! Finish on the reel left more to be desired but got it on sale at a good price.
ProsLight weight. Great inshore super light tackle reel.
ConsFinish a little hazy. Okuma reels run small.

Would love to see matching rods for reels looked at and vise versa.
Okuma does make a red rod. It's the Okuma T-40X. It matches the Okuma RTX-80 RTX Spinning Reel.
