Okuma Citrix A Casting Reels

Featuring the latest in reel technology, the Okuma Citrix A Casting Reels offer a tremendous bang for the buck delivering high quality performance at a reasonable price. Bold, in both design and its 7.3:1 high-speed gear ratio that's available in both right and left hand retrieve, the Okuma Citrix A makes an aggressive statement. The bold strength of Citrix's Alumilite construction frame, A6061-T6 spool and multi-disc drag is tempered by the smooth handling of a ten bearing drive system, micro-click drag adjustment and ergonomic swept-in handle. A complete aesthetic re-design from the previous models, the Citrix A Casting Reels feature a matte or prime black main color with vibrant orange highlights throughout the reel. This high speed reel, 7.3:1 gear ratio, is ideal for a number of techniques including topwater, jig/worm, frogs and flipping. Due to its compact size, the Citrix A Casting Reels are very palmable affording more control of the reel. At 8.4oz, they aren't the lightest casting reels we carry, but some anglers prefer the more solid feel that offer.

Citrix A Reel Technology


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.

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.

Spool Access Port

This unique new design can be found on Okuma's low profile baitcast reels. The Spool Access Port allows for quick access to the spool by simply sliding the lock/unlock lever on the side plate opposite the handle. This system allows for quick spool changes, but more importantly it allows quick access for adjusting the Velocity Control System.

Hi-Rise Spool

The Hi-Rise Spool is designed for maximum casting performance. This machined-aluminum spool design features a large arbor and has holes drilled into the spool. By increasing this spool arbor and porting the arbor of the spool we can achieve maximum spool velocity. We also refer to this design as an inertia-free spool system.
