As materials and construction techniques advance, Okuma Fishing Tackle leads the industry with powerful, balanced and responsive rod lines that weigh next to nothing. For 2013, three new Helios spinning models deliver 40 Ton carbon fiber blanks, Fuji KR Concept guides and refined Helios construction to set new benchmarks for strength, sensitivity and ultra-light weight. With modulus defined by resistance to bending, fishing rods are constructed from standard, intermediate and high modulus materials. Sixty-two percent stiffer than standard aerospace-grade materials, Helios’ 40 Ton carbon fiber is high modulus material, delivering the fastest and most powerful rod actions with the least amount of blank material, making them incredibly lightweight. As the blank material in all Helios rods, 40 Ton carbon fiber delivers the most sensitive and responsive rods available. Further reducing weight, new Helios spinning rods feature Fuji “Rapid Choke” KR Concept guides. The micro guide system for spinning rods, KR Concept guides very quickly transition line coming off the reel to straight running line in the guide set. The “Rapid Choke” of the KR Concept includes more, smaller and lighter guides than a traditional guide set. The system reduces line slap on the blank, increases casting distance and distributes stress more evenly throughout the rod blank. For braided line anglers, the unique Fuji K frame eliminates wind knots and errant guide wraps within casts.
