Thread: Okuma's 2nd Generation of GT Ulua Rods Revealed!

    Default Okuma's 2nd Generation of GT Ulua Rods Revealed!

    Hawaiian Custom Rods For Hawaii!

    This year Okuma unveiled the new revised Hawaiian Custom Ulua Rod. Ulua is a local name for GT (Giant Trevally). All rods are 13' & 50/50 split. There's a MH & a H that has 7 guides plus tip. The MH is rated for 50-60lb line, 7-10oz casting weight & weighs 29.9oz. The H is rated for 50-80lb line, 9-12oz casting weight & weighs 36.1oz.

    Both rods have SS butts & a brass tube for a bell holder. Handle grip is covered in non-slip shrink tubing. Guides are by Pac Bay and are marine grade SS in a 3-coil frame (known locally as Hilo Coils). This way no inserts are torn out or damaged on a large strike. Going to have to try out these puppies!

    The HWU Ulua rod blanks are 24-ton carbon (this info isn't on the web site).
