I’ve been a huge fan of Okuma Fishing USA products for quite some time. During this summer’s ICAST show we were introduced to some of the latest gear from Okuma, which included the new Epixor Inshore fishing rod.
A couple of years back Okuma Fishing started production of inshore fishing rods with the Shadow Stalker, which is a great inshore fishing rod in itself. This year, Okuma is upping their ante with a new series of inshore fishing rod with the Epixor Inshore series. I’ve been using these rods over the past few trips and I have to say that I am very pleased with their performance. The Epixor Inshore rod has a solid backbone whether you’re reeling in trout or redfish.
The butt of the rod is cork ,and the length is perfect for fighting a fish while sitting in my kayak. The durable cork fore and rear grips provide comfort and sensitivity while you’re fishing all day. It’s long enough to go against my forearm for that added little extra motivation to bring in a stud redfish, but short enough that it also won’t knock against my kayak making it cumbersome. The Epixor Inshore rod features 8 eyelets, which helps give the angler added accuracy and distance on their casts.
The Epixor Inshore spinning rod from Okuma Fishing USA utilizes high-quality components to give you a saltwater-safe spinning option for your inshore fishing arsenal. The Epixor Inshore rod features a lightweight and responsive 24-ton carbon blank that allows you to feel subtle bites while providing enough backbone to fight trophy inshore fish. This rod is outfitted with Fuji stainless steel guides with aluminum oxide inserts for smooth line movement with fewer tangles and line abrasions. A premium Fuji DPS reel seat gives you maximum reel support for your favorite inshore spinning reel. I found that the Epixor Inshore rod pairs perfectly with the new Epixor XT spinning reel. Durable cork fore and rear grips provide comfort and sensitivity while you’re fishing all day.
What makes the Epixor Inshore rods an even better deal is the price! You’re getting a high quality rod without the exorbitant price! The Epixor Inshore Rods come in 6 spinning models and retail for $69.99.
