Just told by my LTS that Okuma is shipping out the remainder of the current Makaira series reels and has started production on the next gen. Supposed to have the new/updated reels on the market in the fall. No details on how or if the next gen will be different from the current production. There are also posts about a new Tesoro star drag they have just unofficially unveiled. Maybe the Makaira 15.5 is on the way!
