Okuma Komodo SS 200 – New Baitcast Reel For 2019

The Komodo SS has been a staple in the saltwater baitcast market for several years with its 350 and 450 size reels dominating the saltwater scene.  Now with the new 200 size Komodo SS, they Komodo family looks to dominate all the way inshore.

It’s pretty obvious, but the “SS” in Komodo SS stands for Stainless Steel. The Komodo SS is built around a heavy-duty stainless steel main gear, pinion gear, drive shaft and spool shaft to deliver an internal foundation of unrelenting strength and corrosion-resistance. In short, this is the major point of separation in new Komodo SS reels for those anglers who want to push these reels towards their maximum drag output of 20-pounds on large predatory fish.
