The Okuma Helios Spinning Reels are 25% lighter and 50% stronger than standard graphite framed reels. The Helios utilizes C-40X long strand carbon fiber construction. With long strand carbon fiber, less powder is needed for filler resulting in a stronger and lighter body. Both the body and rotor feature this stronger and lighter construction. The side-plates, drag knob and handle arm feature Okuma's 1K carbon fiber inserts resulting in unmatched strength with a minimum weight.

On the interior is the Helios Precision Elliptical Gear System which is machine cut from aluminum. The aluminum gearing is lighter and harder than traditional brass gears. The aluminum gears are also far more corrosion resistant than brass. The pinion gear is constructed of brass for liquid smooth operation. The Helios features Carbonite drag washers for years of smooth fish stopping power.

Additional features of the Okuma Helios Spinning Reels include:

  • Carbonite drag washers
  • 8 HPB Stainless steel ball bearings
  • 1 Quick-set anti-reverse roller bearing
  • Precision machine-cut brass pinion gear
  • Corrosion resistant aluminum gearing
  • Long strand carbon fiber body and rotor construction
  • Hydro block watertight drag seal
  • Hx-25S, HX35S Hx-40S are hi-speed models with 6.0:1 a gear ratio

About Me:
Only had it out twice at this point, but it's smooth and light. I have it paired with the fenwick eagle GT 6" med light, I bought here at fishusa.com. The first time I took this out I landded two 13+ inch rainbow trout. Reel was smooth and light enough to hold all day. The Second time I landed a small mouth and a couple of white perch and the still smooth and none of the problem I read about on the reviews. Awesome looking reel works great, I would recommend. Esp. With the $30 rebate.
