Inspira = Inspration

As the 2015 Elite Series came to a close on Sturgeon Bay, we were able to watch the best anglers in the world battle the elements and moving schools of bass to lock up Bassmaster Classic bids, tournament titles, and attempt to end the year on a positive note.  Perhaps more so than any previous season, the 2015 Bassmaster Elites Series showed that these Elite anglers know how to catch bass under just about any condition and to do well, it is critical to have the correct equipment.

Having the right spinning reel with the right features was critical to catching limits – whether it was chasing  finicky green keepers at the Sabine River or hauling in giant brown fish on the Great Lakes, having a spinning reel that was both comfortable and efficient was key. Here is look at an elite spinning reel with all the features you will ever need:

ONTARIO, CA: Throughout its history, Okuma Fishing Tackle has repeatedly advanced the spinning reel category, making previously unattainable features accessible to anglers of all levels. For 2016, Okuma unleashes Inspira, delivering incredible new technologies in combination with Okuma mainstays of performance. Including all-new Cyclonic Flow Rotor, Centrifugal Disc Bail and Torsion Control Armor, Inspira will energize freshwater and inshore saltwater fisheries across the globe.OIC-1

At first glance, there’s no missing the heavily ported Cyclonic Flow Rotor. More than just striking design, this system has purpose. With every revolution of the handle, the rotor creates a rotation of air around the rotor, beneath and around the spool. Under extensive testing, the system drives intruding moisture from structural elements, minimizing corrosion and extending longevity.

Also delivering on durability is the Centrifugal Disc Bail. An all-new design incorporating a stout brass disc, the system is perfectly balanced and creates incredibly smooth and precise bail operation with a minimum of moving parts.

New Torsion Control Armor is an extension of Okuma’s forward-thinking C-40X long strand carbon fiber construction. C-40X construction is 25% lighter, 50% stronger than graphite. In Torsion Control Armor, C-40X is used to create a reinforced reel foot and body harness that’s super light, but extremely rigid under heavy pressure. This reduces twist and flex to maintain alignment of internal components, greatly extending their working life.

Internally, the Inspira draws from the best of Okuma performance features: Precision Elliptical Gearing, machine cut brass pinion gear, 8 ball bearings plus roller bearing, forged aluminum handle, braid-ready machined aluminum spool with Hydro-Block water–tight drag.

New Inspira is available in three sizes, 20, 30, or 40 in the angler’s choice of black/blue or white/black. Inspira carries an MSRP of $79-99-$89.99 and is covered by the Okuma 1-Year Limited Warranty.
