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!
