Delivering features commonly reserved for elite-level spinning reels, the all-new Okuma RTX family is the first to offer long strand carbon fiber framing and premium aluminum gears at less than 100 MSRP. For anglers, this makes ultra-light, ultra-powerful spinning reels more accessible than ever before. The RTX series includes four high-speed, 6.0:1 models, the RTX-25S, RTX-30S, RTX-35S and RTX-40S, with a focus on freshwater and light inshore saltwater applications. Headlining an extensive feature set is the Okuma C-40X long strand carbon fiber frame and rotor system. Rather than a standard resin featuring powdered filler for strength, C-40X resins feature a mix of long carbon fiber strands, interwoven tens of thousands of times. By greatly enhancing the connections between all fibers, strength is increased by a factor of 50%. And because less resin is necessary overall, weight is reduced by 25% over standard graphite frames. C-40X construction is plainly visible when the reels are exposed to bright light. On the interior of the RTX, the Precision Elliptical Gearing system incorporates an anodized aluminum main gear, oscillation gear and slider. Harder than brass and much more corrosion resistant, the drive system greatly enhances strength and longevity, while further reducing weight. A brass pinion gear is maintained to provide for exceptionally smooth gear meshing and fluid performance overall.
