Okuma's New 2021 Surf Rod Release!

Earlier this year i was gifted an earlier release of the 12ft model by a local dealer to create an early look at what was being released. Basically it's by far the most POWERFUL of the Rockaway series. Rated at 6-16oz! For spinning reels. Okuma has several lines that you could use with this rod. The Coronado, Cedros & Makaira. Now this is for the 12ft model.The smaller models can be used with most surf spinners.

Not only is the 12ft Rockaway the most powerful but is leading the way for other Okuma spinning rods. At the 2021 ICAST the NEW 12ft Solaris SSX Surf Rod was revealed using this same blank technology being the 2nd rod boasting a 6-16oz rating. All the Rockaway HD & Solaris SSX will incorporate this new rod blank. Here are some stats-

Light and responsive 24/30-ton, low resin carbon rod blanks
UFRII: Ultimate Flex Reinforced rod tip technology
Tip over butt ferrule connection for improved balance and feel
70/30 blank configuration allows improved loading for casting
SeaGuide XQH series angled 316 stainless steel guide frames
Zirconium inserts offer compatibility for both braid and mono
Okuma double locking reel seat with stainless steel hoods
Minimal grip design with textured shrink tube fore and rear grip
Rockaway HD Surf rods are backed by a 1-year limited warranty
