Responding to tremendous angler demand, the tournament-driven Helio baitcast reel family has been upgraded for 2013, now including a larger gear box, high speed 7.3:1 gear ratio and models in both right hand and left hand retrieve. Building upon a base of superior components that include an aluminum gear system, ABEC-5 spool bearing and full Carbonite drag system, new Helios models include both right-and left-side aluminum side plates for rugged durability, while maintaining an incredibly lean 6.3 ounces of total weight. The new models will make the Helios family Okuma\\\'s lightest baitcast reel for right and left-handers alike.
