Okuma innovation advances rapidly within the Trio spinning reel's revolutionary Crossover Construction platform. Taking the best of aluminum's strength and graphite's lightweight handling, Trio delivers an intelligently designed, agile and rugged performer for all freshwater and inshore saltwater fishing applications.Read more
Precision Elliptical Gearing
The revolutionary Precision Elliptical Gearing design is patented in a number of countries around the world and is the soul of the Okuma mid to upper-end spinning reel range. The Precision Elliptical Gearing design uses elliptical shaped oscillation gears which provide exceptional line lay, improved smoothness and maximum long-life durability. The Precision Elliptical Gearing gears are always engaged and provide a very smooth spool stroke, eliminating the spool from jumping as commonly found on many reels.
Dual Force Drag
DFD incorporates both surfaces of the spool to maximize high-end drag pressure, efficiency and overall smoothness. Mounted in the top of the spool and protected by the Hydro Block system is a multi-disc felt drag system that works in conjunction with a secondary drag system that is mounted under the spool. Even pressure is applied to both surfaces of the spool for maximum stability.
High Performance Ball Bearings
The balls used on the HPB's are constructed from the same high-grade stainless steel material as the bearing housing. These bearings were designed to be more than 10 times more resistant to saltwater than standard stainless steel bearings. These bearings may even outlast the angler himself.
AlumiLite Frame Construction
AlumiLite construction incorporates Okuma's rigid aluminum body technology on spinning, trolling and fly reel designs. Aluminum frames are stronger and more rigid and are capable of withstanding more pressure and torque than traditional graphite frames. These lightweight, die-cast aluminum frames provide more precise tolerances for precision gear alignment, maximum castability and ultimate durability.
Quick Set Anti-Reverse
This system allows for instant handle engagement and eliminates all handle back play commonly found in many reels. This is accomplished by using a corrosion- resistant stainless steel roller bearing that engages the reel in one direction for rock-solid hook sets.
RES II Rotor Equalizing
The RES II System stands for Rotor Equalizing System. This second-generation RES System incorporates a computer-balanced weight precisely placed in the rotor. This weight allows for precision balance and eliminates all spool wobble for perfect alignments and smooth cranking.
The Even Flow Roller System utilizes a ball bearing under the line roller to maximize efficiency. This roller helps reduce line twists by freely rolling over the line roller without friction. Without this system, line will naturally twist when drag is pulled.
The Hydro Block design features a rubber gasket mounted in the top of a spinning reel spool. This rubber seal blocks water and foreign materials from entering the drag system. The Hydro Block system ensures that your drag washers always perform at optimal levels.
