Okuma has released the next Makaira spinning reel, the 10,000 size. Built with a forged aluminium and machine-cut body and side plate, the new reel has 23 different oil-retaining O-rings and gaskets and is available in left- and right-hand editions. Other features include a soft-touch handle, a carbonite dual force drag treated with Cal’s drag grease produces up to 25kg of drag pressure. The 4.9:1 gear ratio retrieves up to 101cm of line per turn of the handle. With a capacity of 400m of PE5 braid, the Makaira 10,000 is backed by Okuma’s five-year limited warranty.
