Okuma Releases Deadeye Classic Series Rods for 2019

NEW Okuma Deadeye Classic Series rods utilize the latest in technology to create the ultimate walleye family of rods.

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.

The Deadeye Classic Series rods were designed around Okuma's UFR tip technology. Ultimate Flex Reinforcement. This process blends unidirectional fiber over 24-ton carbon in the extended tip section of the rod to increase lifting strength and power by as much as 400%. This technology provides for the ultimate in strength without sacrificing sensitivity so that you can feel even the lightest of bites.

"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.

The Deadeye Classic Series Rods are available at a retail price of $49.99 to $74.99 and are backed by a 1-year limited warranty. For more information, please visit
