Okuma Helios SX Spinning Reel

Wow, just Wow, after a long pause in the market place over the past few years on the Okuma brand, it seems they have really stepped up and taken their reels to a new level, with the Helios SX looking and feeling fantastic in the hand.

Not only has this reel got all the bells and whistles that you expect with a high quality reel, and looks absolutely incredible, the performance and multiple sizes will see this a s great winner for the brand.

The Helios SX spinning reel, is now available to Aussie anglers in a 20, 30 and 40 sizes and has some great value for money.

One of the first things you will notice about this classy looking reel is the weight reduction, achieved through the use of Okuma’s new C-40X long strand carbon fibre technology. C-40X features elongated and reinforced fibres that create a substantially stronger composite than standard graphite material, that is 1.5 times stronger, 25% lighter and 100% anti-corrosive. In short it makes your reel lighter and more durable.

Combine this with Okuma’s TCA: Torsion Control Armor, a double arm design in the reel stem that encapsulates the body of the reel, creating high torsion and flex resistance to reduce twist and torque, while keeping internal parts perfectly aligned, and you have a lightweight, rigid reel that sees power transferred effectively and efficiently.

Other features of this quality reel include 8HPB + 1RB corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings for silky smooth performanceALG: Precision Alumilite alloy main gear and oscillating gears, heavy duty, solid aluminium bail wire, RESII: Computer Balanced Rotor Equalizing System, CBD: Centrifugal Disc Bail that incorporates a perfectly weighted brass disc that creates a smoother and easier bail operation, while creating the strength and stability of the bail function, along with Progressive Drag, a 1-K woven carbon fibre drag knob that reduces weight and creates a more progressive drag setting.

A perfect option for the tournament bream and bass angler, or keen social fisho, the Helios SX is all about high end performance and cutting edge features at an affordable price.

SRP: HSX-20 - $189.90 / HSX-30 - $199.90 / HSX-40 - $219.90
