What Do The Numbers Represent On A Okuma Product?

Of the first set of 4 numbers , the first 2 numbers represents the year the reel was manufactured. Start the numbering at #25 for the year 2000 when you minus #25 off the first 2 numbers. In this case the first 4 numbers are 4316 so just minus 25 off 43. You get 18. That means the reel was manufactured in 2018.

The next 2 numbers 16 represents the weeks of 2018. So it was manufactured the 16th week of 2018. Finally the last 3 numbers #090. That means this reel was the 90th unit produced that week. This is Okuma's numbering system. Every company has their own system.
