Okuma Citrix Reel

Those with an educated thumb almost always prefer a bait-caster over a spinner when it comes to making a precise cast. Okuma’s new Citrix bait-caster offers anglers a low-profile reel that feels comfortable in your hands when casting a jig or fighting a keeper. The reel features a rigid die-cast, anodized aluminum frame with lightweight graphite sideplates and a V-shaped spool.

The reel pumps out 11-pounds of drag thanks to a multi-disc composite drag system. With a total of eight bearings, the reel’s free-spool and retrieve is super smooth and consistent. Take control of your cast with the external adjustable control system and use the micro-click drag for precise drag settings. This real offers zirconium line-guide inserts for use with braided line and an ergonomic handle so you can hold the reel closer to your body when cranking.

Citrix reels come in two gear ratios — a standard 5.4:1 and a blazing fast 7.3:1.
