Okuma Solterra SLX-15LX Left Handed Reel Spec's:
Ergo Grip handle knob is an extremely comfortable oversized handle knob design for both speed and power. This soft touch knob has been ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of your hand and will be found on certain Okuma lever drag reels, star drag reels and some spinning reel models.
These highly efficient carbon fiber drag washers decrease friction as drag pressure and spool velocity increases. The heat dissipating properties found on these US made drag washers produce one of the smoothest, most precise and longest lasting drag systems available in the fishing tackle industry.
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.
Machined Rigid Frame
Okumas Machined Rigid Frame construction incorporates a one-piece fully machined aluminum frame. These rigid bar-stock aluminum frames are the ultimate in precision alignment and tolerances withstanding more pressure and torque than any other material used in our industry for frame materials. Okuma features these anodized frames on fly reels, baitcast reels, lever drag reels and star drag trolling reels.
High Performance Ball Bearings: The properties of the HPB are almost identical to that of the E2BB with the exception of the balls. The balls used on the HPBs are constructed from the same high-grade stainless steel material as the bearing housing. These bearings were designed to be more than 10 times more resistant to saltwater than standard stainless steel bearings. These bearings may even outlast the angler himself.
