Okuma Fishing Tackle has unveiled the all-new Helios line of ultra-light, ultra-powerful spinning reels. Featuring brand new C-40X, long strand carbon fiber technology and an aluminum and brass gear system, Okuma Helios spinning reels are up to 25% lighter and 50% stronger than standard graphite-framed reels. Immediately evident when Helios is viewed in bright light, C-40X long strand carbon fiber construction is exactly as it sounds. Rather than a standard resin featuring powdered filler for strength, Helios resins feature a mix of long carbon fiber strands, interwoven tens of thousands of times. By greatly enhancing the connections between all fibers, strength is increased by a factor of 50%. And because less resin and fiber are necessary overall, weight is reduced by 25% over standard graphite frames. Within Helios, both the frame and rotor system utilize long strand carbon fiber construction. Helios side plates, drag knob and handle arm feature Okuma 1K carbon fiber inserts. Constructed of resin-impregnated carbon cloth, very similarly to fishing rods, the side plates and spool top achieve the ultimate in strength-to-weight ratios, delivering unmatched strength with a minimum of weight. On the interior, Helios Precision Elliptical Gear system is machine cut from aluminum. Both lighter and harder than traditional brass gears, it's also far superior in corrosion-resistance.
