Okuma RTX Spinning Reel Product Review

At some point in the future, you may wish to upgrade your reel to something a bit higher-quality. The Okuma RTX models are a great jumping-off point. This reel is regarded worldwide as one of the best middle to upper-range reels out there because it helps you to be more precise with casts and more smooth with retrieves.

The reason many fishermen love this reel is because of how lightweight it is. The frame, side plate, and rotor are all made of C-40X carbon, and the multi-disc Japanese drag system will give you added control over your retrieves and battles.

This reel is going to be a great choice for the higher-skilled fishermen or fisherwomen who like to fish inshore for smaller species. The weight and drag are ideal for this kind of fishing in both saltwater and freshwater.
