Okuma has re-released the popular Reflexions series of rods with some great improvements over years past. This is now the third generation of the fantastic series that has rods for all aspects of fishing.
The new Reflexions “b” rods start with a foundation built on light and responsive 24-ton carbon rod blanks that are both durable and sensitive. The new series of Reflexions rods now feature Okuma’s UFR rod tip technology. This process blends unidirectional fiber over 24-ton carbon in the extended tip section of the rod to increase lifting strength and power by as much as 400%. This technology provides for the ultimate in strength without sacrificing sensitivity so that you can feel even the lightest of bites down deep.
“We have been very proud of the Reflexions series of rods over the years,” states John Bretza, Product Development Manager. “This new “b” version features some great new updates including the UFR tip technology and upgraded components making this all-around series even better.”
The Reflexions “b” series of rods features both spinning and casting models and offer them in both 1-piece and 2-piece variations. The family of rods feature a wide variety of lengths and actions to choose from making it one of the most comprehensive families in the Okuma lineup. Starting at 5-foot, 6-inch and going to 7-foot, 3-inch with many variations from Medium Light, Medium, Medium Heavy throughout the lineup.
The updated components of the Reflexions “b” series of rods consist of SeaGuide stainless steel deep pressed guide frames with zirconium inserts that offer compatibility for both braid and monofilament lines. Each of the rods in the Reflexions lineup feature split rear cork grip that helps reduce weight and improving overall balance. The rods also have a precision placed stainless steel hook keeper on all models.
Reflexions “b” rods are available family priced at $74.99 and are backed by a 1-year limited warranty. For more information, please visit www.okumafishingusa.com.
