Okuma Azores Blue Spinning Reels


THE new upgraded Okuma Azores Blue spinning reel offers anglers a heavy duty saltwater reel and big fish stopper that won’t break the bank.

Designed for saltwater fishing, the Azores Blue has features that include 6HPB + 1RB corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings, a dual anti-reverse system for maximum security, a corrosion-resistant coating process and corrosion-resistant, high density gearing.

According to the manufacturers, the reels have felt drag washers for a dual force drag, a system designed for maximum high-end drag pressure, efficiency and overall smoothness, and which provides maximum drag pressures well above many equivalent size reels. The reels are said to gave an impressive 13 kg maximum drag on the 4000 and 5500 size reels, and 20 kg maximum drag on the 6500, 8000 and 9000 sizes.

The Azores Blue has a rigid diecast aluminium body, sideplate and rotor, combined with a carbon mechanical stabilising system, which stabilises the spool shaft at three key stress points to eliminate flex under pressure, meaning strength, durability and minimal flex, and keeping internals aligned and running smoother. The feature list continues with a watertight drag seal, machined aluminium handle and machined aluminium spool with long cast lip.

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

Suggested retail prices: 4000 – $179.90 / 5500 – $189.90 / 6500 – $209.90 / 8000 & 9000 – $219.90
