The Okuma Epixor EB Baitfeeder Spinning Reels feature Okuma's patented baitfeeding system combined with the standard Epixor B's EDS (Extra Drag Surface) spool design,a multi-disk Japanese oiled felt drag washer system and Hydro Block waterproof drag seal. The Epixor EB features unequaled versatility and unparalleled stopping power.
The Epixor EB's baitfeeder system disengages the spool to allow bait to run freely by flipping up the baitfeeder lever. The tension of the free spool can be fine-tuned so bait doesn't overrun the spool. The bait feeding system allows a fish to pick up the bait and run without feeling the drag of the reel. When you are ready to set the hook, you flip down the baitfeeder lever and the conventional front drag takes over.
Like the standard Epixor B spinning reels, the Epixor EB features an ultra-smooth action with nine stainless steel ball bearings and a one-way clutch bearing. The quick-set anti-reverse system guarantees rock-solid hook sets and eliminates handle play. The aluminum handle arm and soft, comfortable rubber handle make the Epixor EB is perfect for any fresh water or inshore angling.
