THE 2018 iF Design Award-winning Okuma Epixor XT spinning reel offers anglers stylish design, quality build, performance plus and a load of features at an extremely affordable price.
In short, more bang for your buck.
The build includes Okuma’s C-40X long-strand carbon fibre technology, which is a substantially stronger composite than standard graphite.
At 25 percent lighter, 50 percent stronger and 100 percent anti-corrosive, the Epixor’s body, frame and side plate are extremely lightweight and durably constructed.
Other build features include rigid metal handle design, machined aluminium, 2-tone anodised spool with LCS lip, heavy-duty solid aluminium bail wire and TCA: Torsion Control Armour, a C-40X double-arm design that encases the body of the reel, offering higher torsion and flex resistance under heavy pressure, in turn ensuring internal parts stay in perfect alignment.
Smooth performance is based on 7BB+1RB stainless steel bearings, quick-set anti-reverse bearing, RESII: Computer Balanced Rotor Equalizing System, CFR: Cyclonic Flow Rotor and slow oscillation for improved line lay.
With models to suit everything from bream and bass to barra, mackerel and snapper, the Epixor XT offers anglers excellent value for money, backed by Okuma’s 10-year warranty.
It’s available in four sizes: EPXT-20 (SRP: $99.90), EPXT-30 (SRP: $109.90), EPXT-40 and EPXT-50 ($119.90).
