Product Overview

With a fierce look and updated technology, anglers will love this perfectly matched SLX and Sarasota Casting Combo.

Updated and expertly engineered, this casting combo from Okuma delivers with its dynamic performance and polished moves. The new and improved SLX lever drag reel features line indicator rings, letting you know where you’re at while reeling in the big one and where to adjust your drag. Additionally, oversized stainless steel gears offer smooth action while the carbon drag washers with Cal’s universal drag grease dissipate heat. Two thrust bearings have been added virtually eliminating handle binding by 50 percent, prolonging the life of your reel.

Matched with the Sarasota Rod, this combo is as tough as it gets. With features such as a durable, e-glass blank with a glass fiber outer wrap for increased hoop strength and double-footed, stainless steel guide frames with polished titanium oxide guide inserts; this brawny combo can take on anything.
