Re: okuma predator surf rods


from memory the silverado is a cheap knock off of the solaris. I’ve had my solaris for over 5 years and they are a great rod for the dollar. Spare parts are no problem if you have an unfortunate incident with a car door as I did recently. I run mine with an axeon and it casts like a dream, the sceptre I have also works well with it. I’ve caught large sharks, snapper and its handled those with ease.
What casting technique do you use? I can get about 130m using the off the ground cast with a 5 or 6 oz sinker and a clipped down pulley rig.
