Okuma RTX Spinning Reels

The Okuma RTX Spinning Reels deliver features commonly reserved for elite-level spinning reels. The RTX series of reels feature models great for freshwater and light inshore saltwater applications. Okuma utilizes their C-40X with long strand carbon fiber to increase strength by 50% while decreasing weight by 25% over standard graphite frames. The C-40X construction is plainly visible when the reels are exposed to bright sunlight. The Okuma RTX Spinning Reels are finished off with a two-tone machined and ported aluminum spool and forged aluminum handle with EVA handle knob. The seven stainless steel ball bearings and Quick-set anti-reverse roller bearing make for zero handle play.

The interior of the RTX spinnings reels feature the Precision Elliptical Gearing system. This system incorporates an anodized aluminum main gear, oscillation gear and slider. Harder than brass and much more corrosion resistant, the drive system greatly improves strength and longevity, while further decreasing weight. The brass pinion is maintained to provide for liquid smooth gear meshing and fluid overall performance.

Features of the Okuma RTX Spinning Reels include:

  • Japanese oiled felt drag system
  • 1 Quick-set anti-reverse roller bearing
  • RESII computer balanced rotor equalizing system
  • ALG: Precision AlumiLite alloy main gear and oscillating gears
  • Precision elliptical gearing system
  • Precision machine-cut brass pinion gear
  • Corrosion resistant aluminum gearing
  • C-40X long strand carbon fiber frame, sideplate and rotor
  • Hydro block watertight drag seal
  • 1 piece solid gun smoke anodized aluminum bail wire
  • Forged aluminum handle with EVA handle knob
  • VRTX spinning reels are backed by a 1-year limited warranty

I used the RTX-35S on a recent trip to Naples, FL for inshore fishing from the Naples pier. It was a pleasure to use it for jig fishing since its light weight (8.6oz) allowed me to fish for hours without the wrist or arm fatigue of a heavier reel. In addition it cast extremely well with 14lb braid and had a very smooth retrieve. I would recommend the reel to anyone looking for a light reel at a great value. 


Pros: high speed retrieve, light weight, smooth retrieve

Cons: none so far

Best Uses: llight saltwater or freshwater i

I used the reel on a recent trip to Naples, FL for inshore species (pompano, spotted trout and
Spanish mackeral). The method was vertical jigging with a small lure called a pink banana. Because the RTX-35S was so light, there was no wrist or arm fatigue despite hours of fishing each day. In addition the reel cast long distances with Fireline 14lb braid. It was a pleasure to fish with this reel. 


Pros: Light weight, long casts, smooth retrieve

Cons: none so far

Best Uses: none

The reels are very smooth and even with the oiled drag it is very sensitive and smooth.  It is not a Shimano STradic C4 but it is close for 1/2 the price...


Pros: Light weight, ballbearings make it very smooth, price, no handle play

Cons: drag works good but not dry drag system

Best Uses: I purchased the 4000, Bass, Larger fish requiring 10 or 12 lb test, Light saltwater fishing
