Okuma Releases Deadeye Classic Series Rods for 2019
ONTARIO, CA: The Okuma Deadeye Classic rods are one of three new models of walleye specific rods to hit the market this year. The Deadeye Classic Series rods are a family of rods encompassing all of the popular walleye techniques from trolling to jigging.
"In working with our product testers from throughout the Midwest, we knew we had to come up with a full range of trolling and jigging rods for the everyday walleye angler," stated John Bretza, Product Development Manager. "The 13 models give the walleye angler the right tools to get the job done."
The Deadeye Classic Series applies its UFR technology to 13 technique specific models. With 6 trolling versions and 7 jigging models, this series is sure to have the right action you are looking for. The trolling models cover lead core, bottom bouncing, and downrigger versions and feature rugged and durable E-Glass blanks. The jigging rods are all spinning models from 6-foot Medium Heavy to 7-foot Medium and feature ultra-responsive 24-ton graphite blanks.
All Deadeye Classic Series rods utilize stainless steel guide frames with titanium oxide guide inserts as well as specialized stainless steel guide tip to prevent inserts from popping out. All Deadeye Classic jigging rods have a cork split grip or cork full grip configuration, and all trolling models have a shrink tube rear grip configuration as well as a comfortable triangular EVA fore grip to reduce rod twisting.
