The Classic series stands the test of time. It's the all around reel everyone grow up with, only it has grown up too. Well known for its versatility, the classic series can be found trolling lakes for trout, down rigging for salmon or softly casting live bait to schools of breezing tuna. Line burning fish don't have a chance dancing against the Classic's newly enlarged, incredibly smooth, multi-disc drag system. The lightweight one -piece graphite frames and the heavy-duty brass and stainless gearing are the keys to the versatility of these reels.
The Classic series offers extraordinary value that will please the most discriminating angler. The growing family of Classic reels offers a reel for virtually every fishery in the country.

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.
