Looking for a new heavy duty reel that will easily stop hard pulling fish that won’t break the bank? Well the Okuma Azores Blue spinning reel offers anglers all this, and starts at a brilliant $179.00, and not only looks fantastic, it has the heavy duty gearing accustomed to a light weigh finish, that will let you fish all day.

Designed specifically for saltwater fishing, with proven power features and a patented interior design, the Azores Blue is much more durable, strong and smoother than other reels in its class. Features include 6HPB + 1RB corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings, more than 10 times more resistant to saltwater than standard stainless steel bearings, dual anti-reverse system for maximum security, CRC: Corrosion-resistant coating process and HDGII: Corrosion-resistant, high density gearing.

Impressive drags, thanks to multi-disc carbonite and felt drag washers for DFD: Dual Force Drag, a system designed for maximum high-end drag pressure, efficiency and overall smoothness, providing maximum drag pressures well above many equivalent size reels, including those in a much higher price brackets. An impressive 13kg maximum drag on the 4000 and 5500 size reels, and brutal 20kg maximum drag on the 6500, 8000 and 9000 sizes.

ALC: Rigid diecast aluminium bodysideplate and rotorcombined with MSS: Carbon Mechanical Stabilizing System, stabilizes the spool shaft at 3 key stress points to eliminate flex under pressure, meaning strength, durability and minimal flex, keeping internals aligned and running smoother. The feature list continues with Hydro Block watertight drag seal, machined aluminium handle for added strength and machined aluminium spool with LCS, long cast lip.

All of these features and more combine to create a true affordable, saltwater reel that is capable of handling trophy sized saltwater fish.

SRP: 4000 - $179.90 / 5500 - $189.90 / 6500 - $209.90 / 8000 & 9000 – $219.90
