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 METALOID 5II & 5NII
12NII and 12II
Amazing Value and Performance - 2 speed reels
While single speed versions were produced, the 2 speeds represent the stronger
value with modest increase of cost verses the single speeds.

VISIT OUR WEEKLY SPECIALS PAGE,
HAVE WE GOT A DEAL FOR YOU...

Okuma's Metaloid series has been a fantastic winner for this major league firm.  The 5 and 5 narrow two speeds are among the most useful reels a person can own, all metal construction, powerful two speed gearing, capable of taking large fish, and  with a fantastic 3 year parts and labor warranty from the manufacturer.  Okuma created the strongest performance verses price series of reels on the market with their introduction of the Metaloid series. The value gets no better for a two speed reel, made from metal not plastic, with high drag capability, excellent freespool performance, from a major manufacturer... Rugged, capable, worthy of owning for many, many years to come. Backing up that point with a THREE YEAR WARRANTY (verses industry standard 1 year warranty). 

One piece frame and left sideplate, 6061 T6 Machined aluminum frame and sideplates. The reels are cold forged (same process as the infamous bike makers $500 models...), type 2 anodized. The spools are made from machined aluminum. They feature a corrosion resistant coating process as well as the anodizing for dealing with saltwater corrosion issues. All reels in the series offer 4 ball bearings and best of all they offer 17-4 grade stainless steel helical cut gears!. The drag system benefits from Cal's drag grease and Carbonite drag washer. All models offer a loud clicker, and the freespool performance is simply amazing. Note the well thought out gear ratios of these reels, at 6.4:1 high on the 5's, dropping down to 3.8:1 and for the 12's at almost 5:1 dropping down to a head turning 2:1 low gear.  Well thought out, reflecting what's appropriate for their intended line class applications.

M-12II 4 320/30# 4.7 & 2:1 35.4 & 15.7 34 27 lbs 25.8 $299

For 2017, ICAST introduction, the new 12N II speed is a piece we've wanted to see since we first played with the Metaloid series reels. The 12N is like an Avet JX in terms of size, or a Newell 332 for those with a memory. Perfect size, good line capacity using 50-80# braid as a backing and fishing the piece as your 50-60# needs require.  For what it's worth, the new reels came into our stock the day I came back from our five day Red Rooster charter - 2016. If you watch the video of that trip you'll see one of the guys, probably more than one, fishing the smaller Metaloid 5II for bluefin tuna ranging from about 75-100 lbs. For the 12N, bump that fish weight up a bit (I've seen 150lb bluefin taken on them), it's a very capable reel, and now two years after it's first introduction we can also say it's a reliable fish catcher that's also a rather incredible value. 12N pictured in black and silver bottom right image.

 

TWO Speed, Metal Construction, very good Carbon Fiber drag, good conservative match for 20-40# lines on the 5's, and 50-60# on the 12's. Most folks will run braid at one line class heavier then their leader on these reels, so 50# braid as backing for 40# mono, 60# braid for 50# mono topshot, etc.

Metaloid Round Baitcast
New for 2017

Okuma introduced a new Metaloid Round Baitcaster at ICAST 2016. The old Cedros reel, similar round baitcaster was sadly discontinued the previous year. That reel had been a nice alternative to the low profile style levelwind, the new Metaloid picks up where that piece left off. The Metaloid offers performance beyond the older reel. Nice to have this option in their line of reels! The new reel offers a strong aluminum, black anodized frame which is ported to reduce weight. Aluminum machined sideplates offer long term performance, again black anodized for protection from saltwater electrolysis. There's a multi-disc Carbonite drag system, micro click ratcheting star drag for precise settings. The reel has a dual anti0-reverse, four ball bearings and one roller bearing, all stainless steel drive system. Precision machine cut brass main and pinion gears with a 6 pin velocity control casting system. The levelwind is synchronized, offering optimum performance with braided lines. The reel also has a clicker! These new reels are backed by a 1 year limited warranty and offer anglers an exceptional value.

Solterra SLX Single & 2 Speeds
New Product Introduction!

Solterra Lever Drags 2016 INTRODUCTION
Single and Two Speed Reels

Well, here's another series of reels from Okuma that offer folks a very nice alternative, good quality at a very good price point. The Solterra line of lever drag reels are nothing less than a great value, coupled to a very strong performing reel. There are single speed and Two Speed reels in this line. Okuma introduced an update to these popular reels at ICAST 2015, which became available in 2016. The cosmetic upgrade was significant, the reels are much better looking. But, that's on the outside, inside they have done some updating as well. All in all, these are very nice reels, especially for the private boater who typically doubles up on the gear. Solterra models offer a one year parts and labor warranty.

Okuma Cortez - New 2016 Models

Here's a reel we first previewed well over a year ago, and have been waiting patiently ever since... Much like the Cedros star and lever drags, good things come when you wait 'em out. The new Cortez is an innovative reel, made with good materials, offering very good performance at a value conscious price. Much like Daiwa's Sealine it's going to prove itself a workhorse reel, a great reel for someone new to saltwater fishing. It's a very good balance of features, performance and value. The Cortez utilizes a corrosion resistant graphite frame and sideplates, with a machined aluminum anodized spool. The reel features a multi-disc Carbonite drag system, for very good stopping power. The star is made from strong forged steel, and the handle is made from anodized aluminum, and is swept inward in design to reduce wobble while cranking, and there's a soft grip handle that feels right in your hand. You've got 5 bearings to help the reel spin well on a cast. The Cortez has a dual anti reverse system, with both mechanical and roller bearing used in manufacture. The gears are oversized, so you've got some good cranking power despite the high gear ratio (that will help you get bit) of 6.2:1 (4.7 for the 55 size). The gears are self lubricating and the Cortez series reels offer a 1 year manufacturers warranty. Not a bad combination of features, and the price isn't half bad either at $149! Oh, did I mention, the reel has MAGNETIC CAST CONTROL, TOO!!! (note the dial on the sideplate for all but the LARGE 55 size)

ALC MAG

Okuma's 2017 release of the ALC MAG will appeal to anglers seeking a compact and light star drag reel for inshore and light offshore applications. I'm thinking that some of our salmon guys will appreciate this piece. It's an interesting reel, a lot of features for the price. But, there are a few points to bring up that may narrow the reel's acceptance by some of the more fucused anglers. While the reel offers a mag cast control, on the surface it does not seem to offer quite enough freespool to warrant that feature's inclusion. I look at the piece as a great inshore troller, vertical dropper, with secondary casting applications. Might change that opinion once I fish the piece, but my take at first look is that it's a dandy general purpose reel but not a preferred piece for those seeking a long distance caster. Then again, at $150 it's more than worthy of some consideration.
