    Okuma's Rockaway Surf SP Rod & ITX Carbon Spinning Reel Has Been Released For 2021!

    Years ago surf anglers off Oregon asked Okuma for a dedicated rod to target their #1 sought after table fare. The Sea Perch. The resulting answer was the Rockaway Surf Rods. This has evolved over the years to include the Nesikas & now the SP line of Rockaway Surf Rods. These line of rods also found a 2nd home almost 3,000 miles in the Aloha State as a "Whipping Rod", meaning Spin Casting.Here's the stats of the SP Rod-

    Light and responsive 24/30-ton carbon rod blanks
    Tip over butt ferrule connection for improved balance and feel
    SeaGuide XQ series angled 316 stainless steel guide frames
    Zirconium inserts offer compatibility for both braid and mono
    SeaGuide Stainless steel, double legged Trapezoid hook keeper
    Minimal EVA split grip design for reduced weight and balance
    Rockaway SP Surf rods are backed by a 1-year limited warranty

    I paired my Med powered choice with the equally new ITX Carbon Spinning Reel. Available in sizes 1000, 2500, 3000 & 4000. The 4K over-powered this finesse rod so i went with the 3000. Here's the stats on the ITX Carbon Spinning Reels.
