In recent years, Okuma has been developing new patented technologies. One of these new releases, the Helios SX spinning reel, is now available in 20, 30 and 40 sizes. One of the first things you will notice about this classy-loo king reel is the weight reduction, achieved through use of Okuma’s new C-40X long-strand carbon fibre technology. C-40X features elongated and reinforced fibres to create a substantially stronger composite than standard graphite material that is 1.5 times stronger, 25 percent lighter and 100 percent anti-corrosive.
In short, it makes your reel lighter and more durable.Combine this with Okuma’s Torsion Control Armor, a double-arm design in the reel stem that encapsulates the body of the reel, creating high torsion and flex resistance to reduce twist and torque, while keeping internal parts perfectly aligned, and you have a lightweight, rigid reel th at sees power transferred effectively and efficiently.
