Okuma Hakai DT baitcasting reel

Okuma has had a series of low-profile baitcasting reels on the market for years. But its latest offering, the lightweight Hakai DT, is a reel that was literally built from the bottom up.

The LiteCast magnesium frame and a corrosion-resistant coating on the frame and side plates gets things started. The reels start at 5.9 ounces with a 6BB+1RB precision stainless-steel ball-bearing drive for smooth casting and a Quick-Set anti-reverse bearing for solid hooksets.

Okuma introduces its Flite Spool with patented Flite Shaft hollow, stainless-steel main shaft and C-40X carbon injected star, offering the ultimate in free spool and castability.

Six of the 10 models in the Hakai DT line have gear ratios of 6.2:1, 7.3:1 and 8.1:1. Two additional pitching reels come in at 6.2:1 and two finesse reels with an 8.1:1 gear ratio. A universal line diameter indicator lets you know what line you have on the reel at all times.

MSRP: $169.99-$184.99
