After two years in development and a global field testing, Okuma has launched their new Magnetix multiplier for the beach and boat angler.

It features:

Solid graphite body.

Magnetic breaking system.

Solid frame with stainless components.

Stainless power handle and high speed gear ratio of 6.2:1.

Aliminium spool and two stainless ball bearings.

One way clutch roller bearing.

Rulidium drag system.

Titanium coated level wind (level wind series only).

Brass gears and a five year warranty.

There are five models in the range.

If your budget is tight, this reel should appeal to you. Although the price doesn’t reflect it, it is in fact a top quality rough-ground shore reel that anglers are fast becoming aware of.
It has a solid graphite body coupled with a solid frame and stainless components, so it won’t buckle under pressure.
The adjustable magnetic dial controls the cast. This is tucked into the side plate so that once you have set it, it cannot be moved accidentally.
The spool doesn’t hold a huge amount of line, but enough if you’re rock-hopping and fishing into gullies.
It’s a tough reel that will cope with the roughest of shore venues, and the handle is perfect for cranking heavyweight fish out of the snags.
