Okuma Akena Reels
The Okuma Akena Reel is a round style baitcaster constructed from an aluminum frame, sideplates and spool reducing overall weight while maintaining strength. Alumilite construction, including the 1-piece aluminum frame and aluminum left and right side plates define the Okuma Akena baitcast reel as a rugged, no-nonsense performer with incredible versatility. Designed for active cast and retrieve anglers, a five bearing drive system, multi-disc carbonite drag system, precision machine cut brass main and pinion gears and quick-set anti-reverse roller bearing, cast and crank effortlessly and strike with authority. Oversized knobs on the twin paddle handle offer a sure grip and all-day comfort.
We offer the Okuma Akena Reels in a single model: AK400 - a right hand reel. See specs below for more information.

Akena Reels Technology
Okuma's all-new "Carbonite" drag system features a newly-developed carbon-based drag material which displaces heat and friction consistently and steadily even under the harshest of fishing conditions. Used in conjunction with a small amount of specially-formulated Okuma drag grease, the Carbonite drag system allows for a much wider and smoother drag range, all while maintaining exceptional performance and pure fish-stopping power.
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.
Velocity Control System
The Velocity Control System is an adjustable, 6-pin centrifugal braking system for precision spool control. Weights can be adjusted IN or OUT for additional spool control. Positioning the weights in toward the spool allows for more freespool, while adjusting the pins out away from the spool allows for more control. Anglers can alternate weights until they find that perfect balance for casting.
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.
