Okuma's Blue Azores 8K Spinning Reel Is Here! Surf Casters To Pluggers & Jiggers Will Love The Power Of This Reel!

This reel was unveiled at iCast 2019 in Orlando. Slowly the new 4K, 6K & the 8K has made its way to your favorite local US tackle shops. These are powerful surf spinners dedicated for the salt-water shore casters. The Blue Azores line was first introduced abroad in Europe to Asia & Australia. I used to see used units for sale on eBay from non-US countries for years. But the sizing was different.

40 4000
55 6000
65 8000
80 14000
