Okuma Metaloid 2-Speed Lever Drag Reels

The Okuma Metaloid 2-Speed Reels are machined aluminum lever drag reels designed for a wide variety of saltwater fishing applications. Okuma heard their customers pleas and went back to the drawing board to design the Metaloid. Using bits and pieces of technology from their Makaira and Andros models, Okuma has constructed what many consider the perfect inshore saltwater reel. Lightweight, powerful, smooth as butter and resistant against corrosion from use in saltwater, the Metaloid has got it all! Displaying a machined aluminum frame, Okuma was able to shave down weight significantly without decreasing the rigidity of the frame.

The key component of the Okuma Metaloid 2-Speed Reels is obviously the 2-speed mechanism that enables users to switch from a high gear ratio to a powerful low speed option expanding the possibilities immensely. Casting and jigging with the high speed gear ratio is no problem and when the time comes to take your presentation down deeper to do some bottom fishing, you'll have the power of the low gear ratio at your disposal. Within Metaloid, key concepts of these industry-leading platforms take shape in a more accessible package, radically advancing power and performance available to everyday anglers. The reel's easily adjustable level drag is comprised of a powerful carbonite drag system that will prove worthy against anything you do battle against. Speaking of power, Metaloid Reels come with an oversized power knob that fits into the hand and allows for brute force to be applied to the fish you are fighting.

Okuma Metaliod 2-Speed Reels are available in four models: M-5II (RH), M-5IILX (LH), M-12II (RH) and M-12IILX (LH) which will cover the range of techniques from vertical jigging to live bait, casting to light trolling for species up to sailfish and yellowfin tuna.

Great 2 speed reel for a super price December 29, 2016
Reviewer: David Douma from Napa, CA United States  
This is my second Okuma Metaloid 5ll. I have used this reel for king salmon, halibut, sturgeon, and big Lingcod, and the reel has performed wonderfully. The drag is very smooth and has enough power to turn a strong fish. The size of the 5ll is perfect for using with a light downrigger rod for salmon.  No complaints.
