Okuma Makaira II Speed Lever Drag Big Game Reel

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 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. The Okuma® Makaira sets a standard that will advance the ability and redefine the expectations of tournament crews, long-range anglers and private boaters.
