The Okuma Makaira Big Game Multiplier Reel is the ultimate tuna and shark multiplier. Super powerful and super smooth with noise at the lowest end of the scale in relation to large multipliers. In conjunction with the 12 point anti reverse double dog pawl system the slide out system allows for a quiet and smooth forward engage with none of the roughness or clonking normally associated with engagements. Optimizing Okuma’s famous and ultra reliable helical cut drive gearing system, allowing for superior gear meshing, thus equating to overall smoothness. The secret of this is in the angle of the teeth when engaging. Because the helical gears are angled at right angle, meshing becomes more gradual instead of straight cut or spur gear teeth that crunch in.
