Re: Okuma Rods
I bought an Okuma "Magnitude" fly rod a few years ago. It was supposed to be a backup for my 9.5' Powell Timax rod. I soon traded places with the two rods, the Magnitude becoming my main rod. It was lighter and quicker than the Powell. I put an Okuma SLV on the Magnitude with 7.5 WF Rio line. I couldn't find a rod I liked a whole lot better. It had a pretty brown blank, but the handle was cheap looking cast metal. Functional is about all you could say about. I wound up giving it to my son who fishes the North Platte almost daily and he loves the rod. I would buy another if I could find one but I think they are discontinued.
