Okuma's NEW Blue Azores 8000 Spinning Reel is Here!

Okuma's Blue Azores 8K Spinning Reel Is Here!

This reel was at iCast 2019 in Orlando. Slowly the new 4K, 6K & now the 8K has made it's way to your favorite local US tackle shops. These are powerful surf spinners dedicated for the salt-water shore casters. The Blue Azores line was first introduced abroad from Europe to Asia & Australia. I used to see used units for sale on eBay for non-US countries. But the sizing was different (ie like 6500).
