There’s a lot to be excited about in the 2019 Fred Hall Show in Long Beach, CA. Okuma’s booth will be buzzing as anglers get their first look at the Makaira 15T and the Komodo 200.
Both of these reels expand the range and capability of two already proven fishing platforms.

The Makaira lever drag series has been a staple on long range boats up and
down the coast for years now. Now the new Makaira 15T will find its way to the rail with its extreme line capacity and fish stopping power.
This incredible family of lever drag reels, has just gotten more powerful.
The Makaira 15T came about as there was an obvious void between the Makaira 15 to the 16 size reels.
The new 15T is a taller, more compact body design than the current Makaira 15. “The taller, narrower body design of the 15T will give anglers an edge over wider reels,” stated John Bretza, Product Development Manager. “With the taller profile, you will gain more line per turn of the handle even with the same gear ratio.”
The Makaira 15T will come in both gun metal and silver special edition body colors and will feature the same 4.7:1 & 2.1:1 gear ratios as the Makaira 15. The big difference will be the line pick up, gaining 38.9” of line per turn of the handle in high-speed. This reel has a big capacity holding over 350 yards of 65# braided line with an 80-yard top shot of 50# mono. The Carbonite Dual Force Drag system featuring Cal’s universal drag grease puts out up to 40# of drag.
The Makaira 15 T reels have a retail price of $549.99 and backed by a 3-year warranty. For more information, please visit the Okuma website.
