ONTARIO, Calif.: Expanding on the popularity of the ITX Carbon Spinning reel, Okuma is proud to announce the introduction of the ITX CB Spinning Reel, designed specifically for freshwater and light inshore fishing. ITX CB was crafted based on JDM (Japanese domestic market) specifications with a focus on stability and high-performance, embodying the precision and attention to detail that Japanese engineering is known for.
“The ITX CB spinning reel is a testament to high-performance, designed with unique features and special attention to detail throughout the development process,” says John Bretza, Product Development Manager at Okuma. “The ITX CB is the culmination of years of research and development, resulting in a reel unlike any other on the market.”
Constructed with a lightweight and rigid C-40X rotor and TCA construction, the ITX CB spinning reel boasts an incredibly strong and durable body that can withstand tough conditions. The Flite Drive system enhances gear stability and smoothness, allowing for a seamless fishing experience. The multi-disk Carbonite drag washers with Hydro Block gasket ensure a smooth and consistent drag, while the A7075 spool shaft and key drag washers significantly reduce weight, making it easier to handle and cast. The ITX CB spinning reel comes equipped with 7HPB + 1RB High Performance, grease-packed bearings for unparalleled smoothness and precision. Additionally, the Cyclonic Flow Rotor Technology sweeps water away from the machined aluminum, super light anodized aluminum spool, minimizing corrosion.
With a reversible screw-in carbon fiber handle design and lightweight EVA handle knobs, the ITX CB spinning reel offers anglers a comfortable grip, making it easy to fish for long hours without experiencing hand fatigue. The precision machine cut brass pinion gear and Quick-Set anti-reverse roller bearing provide instant hook sets, so you never miss a catch while on the water. The ITX CB spinning reel also features a heavy-duty, solid aluminum bail wire with a DLC line roller and the RESII: Computer balanced Rotor Equalization System, ensuring optimal performance in any fishing situation.
There are four total models within the ITX CB lineup of spinning reels.The1000sizewillfeature5.8:1gear ratio, whilethe2500,3000 and4000 models feature a 6.0:1 gear ratio. ITX CB spinning reels have a retail price of $159.99 and are backed by a 1-year limited warranty.
