Okuma PCH Rods
NEW HEAVY ACTION RAIL RODS ADDED JUNE 2018**
I’ve got to give Okuma a lot of credit, it’s been fun watching them develop and grow. It’s my feeling that they got spanked so hard a decade ago that they learned a most important lesson, they listen. No doubt they innovate, too. But, key for them has been listening and then coming to market with things we’ve (collectively) asked for.
« Our customers are the source of our most valuable input and it’s your needs, goals and desires that drive Okuma product development.” That’s their philosophical statement, and I do believe it’s followed as evidenced by the firms great progress over the past five or six years. Okuma is the sleeping giant of fishing tackle. And, they’re not sleeping these days. They are providing saltwater anglers excellent gear.
Okay, now lets talk rods. The PCH rods were designed with SoCal fishing styles in mind, and innovates their technique and technology to build some very interesting and well built rods. Nine models, 7′, 7 1/2′ and 8 foot lengths, all with relatively fast actions. The rods make use of some of the innovations of other firms, notably United Composites (who are driving rod technology with their materials and designs). UC has been the only firm incorporating uni-directional fiberglass in their composite rods. Okuma is using that material on their tips for this series, and making use of woven carbon fiber, too.
Components are top notch, ALPS HXN guides with Zirconium inserts are used on the extra heavy models, Fuji K-guides with Alconite inserts on the medium and medium/heavy models. All rods feature CAH ALPS double lock down aluminum reel seats. There’s a lot of value in the components used, and their blanks are excellent. The 7 and 7 1/2 footers make use of a new foam grip material (TPE) for less water absorption (compared to hypolon) and greater durability. The 8 footers make use of tapered shrink tube grip — deckhand style. All rods make use of an ALPS non-skid rubber butt cap — no gimbal.
As of 5/24 we’ve received all models except the two heavier 8 footers. Expecting those very soon, tomorrow? I’ll also try to get some more images of these very good looking rods over the next day or so.
Once again, congrats to Okuma, these will be very well received rods. Certainly the days of the old heavy fiberglass rods are numbered. That’s really how we see our own inventory changing for the better. Imports at $200, domestics at $300, carbon, graphite composites in both production locations. And, the old $200 fiberglass rods simply don’t make a great deal of sense when technology has advanced so far over the past 50 years.
13 Fishing Omen Black 2 Spinning Rods
Previous Selling Price: $99.99-119.99
Continuing to deliver performance well above their price range, the new 13 Fishing Omen Black 2 Spinning Rods now feature some key upgrades that make the series even better than before.
Delivering unbelievable actions thoroughly tested for a wide range of finesse and light line applications, the 13 Fishing Omen Black 2 Spinning Rods feature advanced 30-ton Japanese Toray blanks with PVG technology. Poly Vector Graphite Technology allows for the strategic interlacing of graphite to precisely control the fiber angle alignment during the blank rolling process. PVG’s tighter graphite composition increases sensitivity and hoop strength by preventing energy loss due to ovalization under extreme pressure. The result is some of the most balanced and sensitive rods in their class.
High quality ALPS guides with Zirconia inserts are precisely placed on each blank to maximize blank performance, while also increasing durability and casting capabilities. Evolve Engage reel seats form a lightweight comfortable base for your reels and hand-selected 3A Portuguese full cork handles deliver all-day comfort. Each rod comes equipped with a Evolve Snag-less hook keeper as well for added convenience. Back and better than ever, the new 13 Fishing Omen Black 2 Spinning Rods deliver in on performance and still keep your bank account in the “black”.

Comments: I have had 2 Omen Black 2 spinning rods. Both were I belive 6 ft. 7 medium fast. My first one broke when my husband was holding the handle in one hand and pulled the line in the other and it snapped about 4 inches from the tip. I loved how balanced the rod felt so I bought the same exact one. Last week I set the hook on a nice bass and the rod snapped almost in the same exact place and I lost the fish because of it. I really like this rod but unfortunately I will not buy another one because them breaking and hardly even lasting me a year.

Comments: Second trip with 7-1 Medium light snapped at 2nd guide. I really liked it for drop shots but it is so brittle and I can’t find the receipt so this will be the last 13 fishing rod I ever buy.I think the unfinished blank creates a weak spot where the guides are attached.
From: Unknown: 7/11/17
Comments: Nice feeling rod. Only got to use this 2 times then it BROKE above the 4th eye. I didn’t even have a fish on. Rod broke in my boat , I had line in my left hand and rod in right hand I pulled on the line to see the rod flex and snap. I will not be buying this rod again. One and done.

The first trip i took with the rod i got hung up and popped the bait loose and the rod snapped a foot from the tip. sent the rod back and got a replacement the next week. awesome customer service. Fast forward two years to this weekend my 2nd rod busted in three places on a hook set

Comments: Snapped on the second time I used it right at the fourth eye. Was snagged on a light stick and was lifting it and snap. It was not forceful or abuse. I was using 6 LB line and the rod snapped.
From: Unknown 5/11/17
Comments: I ended up getting this rod with a 13 fishing spinning reel also for a birthday gift, this has to be the best rod I own, the 7’1 medium light has awesome action and makes catching any size bass an absolute blast, hands down 5 star rod in my point of view and it’s also great for beginners.
From: Tappan NY 5/5/17
Comments: It snapped like a twig one of the first times I used it
From: Tulsa, OK 3/26/17
Comments: So my last rod lasted about ten years. About three years ago I bought a G-loomis and did not like it or the slim handle. I decided to try this one and I was not let down. The handle is fatter on the top and bottom of the reelseat. It fit my hand like a glove. Its a stiff rod but has a little more give than the g-loomis. Nice for the price
From: Howard: USA 8/18/16
Comments: I have/had the 6’10 ML and it broke today, just like Tyler’s, right above the 4th guide bringing in a 1/2 pound bass. I loved everything about the rod. I am shocked that it snapped like a dead twig.
From: Jason: Milford, CT 7/17/16
Comments: Best $100 rod you can buy. What impresses me most is how lightweight it is! I have a Revo S spinning reel on my 7’1″ medium & it balances great. If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, this is it.
From: Thomas: USA 5/28/16
Comments: Loved the rod, broke right above fourth eyehole. Got a new one since I liked it so much, broke in the same exact spot 2 weeks later on a less than 1 pound fish. Some reinforcement in the upper half of the rod would be great.
From: Tyler: Mount Airy, MD 5/27/16
Comments: Awesome rods, super light l, sensitive & well balanced. I find myself grabbing these before my more expensive rods. Customer service can not be beat either! I recently had to send two broken rods back due to my own dumber fault & was expecting to pay their 50$ per rod oops replacement plan & was shocked to see the rods shipped day after they received it & not charge at all! Not even for shipping! I’m happy to say I’ll be fishing 13 rods as long as they are in business which I hope is for awhile. Great company and great folks!
Comments: Purchased 2 Omen Medium light 7-1 rods. They out preform my St. Croix’s & my Fenwicks. Sensitivity & tip performance superior to any rod i have ever used and I fish a lot, i mean a lot. Great job omen, purchasing the mediums for smallmouths. Went head over heels with first cast and first fish. Ty again omen.
From: Buck: Fox Lake, WI 3/21/16
Comments: Quality rod. Excellent workmanship for the price point. Best reel seats in my opinion. Great hand feel. Sensitivity is great for the price point. Using a 6’7″ M paired with an Okuma RTX30.
