Makaira SEa Reels Feature Okuma's Carbonite Dual Force drag system, helical cut gearing for smooth operation and oversized ergonomic power handle knob. The Makaira 15T came about to fill an obvious void between the Makaira 15 to the 16 size reels. The new 15T is a taller, more compact body design than the existing Makaira 15. The taller, narrower body design of the 15T will give anglers an edge over wider reels. With the taller profile, you will gain more line per turn of the handle even with the same gear ratio. The new Makaira 15T can output up to 18 percent more drag pressure, generating 32-lbs at strike and 40-lbs at full. The narrower frame also offers the advantage in that it reduces side-to-side wobble when cranking, because it offers a more compact design, while still offering about 5 percent more line capacity compared to the original 15-sized reel. The Makaira SEa series reels come with a factory 5 Year warranty!
