OKUMA Makaira 2 Speed Conventional Reels

Design, Drive, Drag and Durability' big game fisheries for billfish, large tuna and sharks will expose weakness in any one of these component systems with disastrous results. Embracing and addressing these four cornerstones, Okuma's multi-national design team, in cooperation with Tiburon Engineering, set out to reinvent the offshore reel. The two-speed Makaira series is the result. Advanced, unique and with numerous patents to its' credit, Makaira provides uncompromised excellence within every aspect of its' design, construction and performance. With sizes to meet the demands of big game fishing worldwide, the Okuma Makaira series sets a standard that will advance the ability and redefine the expectations of tournament crews, long-range anglers and private boaters.
