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% lighter, 50% stronger and 100% anti corrosive, the Epixor’s body, frame and side plate are extremely lightweight and durable. Other build features include rigid metal handle design, machined aluminium, 2-tone anodized spool with LCS lip, heavy duty solid aluminium bail wire and TCA: Torsion Control Armor, 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 7+1 stainless steel bearings, quick-set anti-reverse bearing, computer balanced rotor equalising system, 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. Available in 4 sizes EPXT-20 (SRP: $99.90), EPXT-30 (SRP: $109.90), EPXT-40 and EPXT-50 (SRP $119.90).
