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.
