Built on the foundation of Okuma's venerable Epixor spinning reels, the Epixor EB is flawless. Featuring Okuma's three-piece spool construction as well as a machined aluminum spool with a titanium coated spool lip, the Epixor EB then goes above and beyond by utilizing a waterproof drag seal as well as drag system that is 30% larger than standard drags for incredible stopping power. We offer the Okuma Epixor Bait Feeder Spinning Reels in three sizes: 50, 65 and 80. For more detailed information on each model please consult the technical specs tab.
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.
RES II Rotor Equalizing
The RES II System stands for Rotor Equalizing System. This second-generation RES System incorporates a computer-balanced weight precisely placed in the rotor. This weight allows for precision balance and eliminates all spool wobble for perfect alignments and smooth cranking.
Even Flow Roller
The Even Flow Roller System utilizes a ball bearing under the line roller to maximize efficiency. This roller helps reduce line twists by freely rolling over the line roller without friction. Without this system, line will naturally twist when drag is pulled.
The Hydro Block design features a rubber gasket mounted in the top of a spinning reel spool. This rubber seal blocks water and foreign materials from entering the drag system. The Hydro Block system ensures that your drag washers always perform at optimal levels.
When you see this spare spool icon in the Okuma catalog or on any of our packaging, you will know that you are getting a second spool with your purchase. An extra spool is perfect as a back-up system or for carrying different line sizes to adjust your techniques to fishing conditions.
Bait Feeding System
Okuma's patented baitfeeding system allows anglers to disengage their spinning reel spool and allow theri bait to run freely. The baitfeeding system incorporates a secondary micro-adjustable drag system at the rear of the reel that allows for precise adjustment of the spool for bait control. In order to disengage this system simply turn the handle. The On/Off lever on the rear of the reel will automatically disengage the baitfeeding system so you can fight your fish with the main drag system.
