Original Azores Reel or The Blue Azores?

Postby Scuba Chris » Sun Jan 16, 2022 3:34 am

Are The New Blue Azores Spinning Reels The Same Size & Has The Same Stats As The Originals?

This is my breakdown of the sizes i've used-
Original Sizes New Sizes
40 4000
55 6000
65. 8000
80 14000

Basically the units are the same size. The only differences i've found was the line retrieve & unit weights. Line retrieved on the Blues were higher & the weights was also higher. Because John Bretza of Okuma increased the size of the internal drag gearing of the new Blues. Made a good reel even better!
