What is Torsion Control Armor?

With Torsion Control Armor (TCA) being implemented into many new Okuma reels, supporters of the brand are curious to know what exactly Torsion Control Armor is and what its benefits are.

Torsion Control Armor was designed with a purpose in mind – to significantly reduce body twisting, to keep your internals in perfect alignment, and dramatically improve your fishing experience – especially when fishing braided line.

While traditional spinning body designs utilize single-side support, Torsion Control Armor uses a durable double-arm design to help decrease pressure from weak areas and body twisting points.

TCA is constructed to optimize your fishing experience. With its innovative technology, Torsion Armor Control’s unique frame significantly improves casting, cranking, and gripping by dispersing pressure to other parts of the reel.

TCA is constructed with Okuma’s C40X long-strand carbon fiber technology. C-40X Carbon Technology utilizes a special blended graphite polymer. The carbon fibers in this material are elongated and reinforced, creating substantially stronger composite than standard graphite material. At 25% lighter, 1.5x stronger, and 100% anti-corrosive, C-40X translates into an extremely lightweight and durable construction.

At Okuma our goal is to enhance every encounter. By integrating the newest advancements in materials and construction we can eliminate the troubles of fishing and keep the focus where it matters most – CATCHING FISH!

Introducing the NEW Epixor XT

The Okuma Epixor XT spinning reels are the next generation of a long standing family of spinning reels within the Okuma lineup. Today’s anglers want lightweight reels that they can cast all day and strength and durability to turn and stop even the feistiest of fish. The Epixor XT reels utilize advanced technologies to create both exceptional feel and rock solid durability.

C40X Carbon Technology
NEW C40X Carbon Technology allows for lighter and strong construction than standard graphite. It provide for a rigidity, less weight, and eliminates the chance of reel corrosion.

Centrifugal Disc Bail
Weighted and balanced – the Centrifugal Disc Bail delivers a smooth bail experience


Cyclonic Flow Rotor
The reel also features our Okumas’ new Cyclonic Flow Rotor. This new technological advancement in reel construction increases air flow through the ported rotor to promoting faster drying time.

Progressive Drag
Drag System incorporates more precise and accurate drag settings. The three sizes all contain eight total stainless steel ball bearings and between 11-19lbs of drag out of its multi-disc, Japanese oiled felt drag washers.

Torsion Control Armor
Features Torsion Control Armor which eliminates reel stem twisting and torque while keeping your gears completely aligned. TCA will help get rid of unwanted body twisting by applying pressure on the reel in multiple directions from cranking. It is especially useful for those who enjoy using braided line.
