Self Lubricating Gear System
The self lubricating gear system is a feature found on Okumas higher-end star drag reels. The main gear on this system incorporates a heat sensitive oil impregnated brass bushing that is mounted in the center of the gear. This system releases oil if friction increases to keep the main gear and drive shaft running smoothly in all conditions. Okuma is the first company to adopt this technology which originated in the large machine industry where this function has been time tested for many years.
The XL gearing design found on both lever drag and star drag reels incorporates an oversized gear box that features an enlarged gearing system and enlarged drag system. The drag surface areas on this system are more than 50% larger than a standard gear box design. For the gear system, the major advantage is that the gear teeth are substantially larger, allowing more strength and cranking power. This is how we are able to offer a high speed gear ratio reel without sacrificing cranking power. Our XL gearing system essentially turns your reel into a winch.
