The Okuma Deadeye rods are one of three new models of walleye specific rods to hit the market this year. The Deadeye Series rods are a family of rods encompassing all of the popular walleye techniques from trolling to jigging.
The Deadeye Series rods were designed around Okuma’s UFR tip technology. Ultimate Flex Reinforcement. This process blends unidirectional fiber over 24-ton carbon in the extended tip section of the rod to increase lifting strength and power by as much as 400%. This technology provides for the ultimate in strength without sacrificing sensitivity so that you can feel even the lightest of bites.
All Deadeye Series rods utilize stainless steel guide frames with titanium oxide guide inserts as well as specialized stainless steel guide tip to prevent inserts from popping out. All Deadeye jigging rods have a cork split grip or cork full grip configuration, and all trolling models have a shrink tube rear grip configuration as well as a comfortable triangular EVA fore grip to reduce rod twisting.
