Event Article: 2006 ICAST Reel Coverage


ICAST Coverage Day 1 (Reels) - Paradise for Reel Enthusiasts in Las Vegas (continued)
 

Okuma: It wasn't long ago that Okuma was just entering the market with baitcasting reels, and now they have a complete line of not only round reels but low profile ones as well. Long known for delivering plenty of value for the price Okuma's latest introduction, the Alumina low profile aims to continue that trend. This sleek reel is available in 200 and tiny 100 sizes and comes with a eye-catching electric blue matte blue finish. The team at Okuma was unsure about the finish, but after receiving nothing but positive comments about the finish during the show has decided they indeed did get it right.

 

John Bretza introduces the new Alumina

 

The Alumina features 5 bearings, a titanium coated line insert, a multi-disk carbon drag system, and precision machine cut brass gears. The cast controls are centrifugal weights accessible by a quick release plate. Best of all this reel will retail for only $79.99.

 

The finish is quite unique


The 100 size reel is easy extremely small, and perfect for palming

 

Saltwater anglers, especially salmon anglers will be excited about Okuma's new Catalina line counter reel. The Catalina features oversized gearing, and a self lubricating stainless steel gear system. These reels punch out serious drag pressure thanks to Carbonite drag washers that provide a much wider and smoother drag range, all while maintaining exceptional performance and fish stopping power. 

 

The centrifugal cast controls are accessible via a one touch sideplate

 

The front of the Alumina matches the look that that was first pioneered on the Nemesis and VS reels

 

This new line counter Catalina is a great reel for trollers

Shakespeare/Pflueger: There is no brand that delivers so much for so little. Pflueger's newest spinning reel the Supreme MG features a all magnesium body and rotor, a 10 bearing system, and very aggressive porting for a extremely lightweight solution. A magnesium reel like this would easily cost near 200 dollars from most manufacturers but Pflueger's retail price is only $99.99! That's an absolute steal.

Even the top of the spool has weight reducing dimples. The entire reel only weighs 7.4oz yet it holds 140yards of 8lb mono

 

The details in design are impressive for a reel of this price point
