The Okuma Andros was born from a total commitment to maximizing the fishing experience within applications defined by 15- to 40-pound line. Anticipating the use of braided lines, every aspect of Andros' two-speed design has been optimized to deliver capability commonly reserved for reels twice its' size: from drag power to line capacity, from greased Carbonite drag, to Andros' minimal frame rise above the spool. The payoff? Fitting in the palm of your hand, Andros eliminates the bulk that deadens the connection between angler and fish. You're more agile. You feel everything. You experience more of every encounter. Paired with an Andros Jigging rod, the Andros two-speed turns heads both above and below the water's surface with forward-thinking design and exhilarating power.
