Oros has taken the strike indicator and perfected it. The entire indicator unscrews so you have two halves, you lay your leader in the screw slot and screw it back together. No tiny parts to drop in the river and your leader goes right through the middle of the indicator so it feels more balanced. A quick quarter turn allows you to slide the indicator up or down your leader as conditions change. These are slick!
Oros Strike Indicators
Oros strike indicators eliminate common indicator pain points. There are no small parts to fumble and lose. It’s streamlined design is centered on the line for balanced casting. There is no exposed fastening hardware or posts sticking out to create drag or tangle line.
Oros strike indicators enclose fastening hardware inside of two molded soft foam hemispheres. When closed, the foam hemispheres compress creating a pressure fit lock that keeps it on the line and in place, without kinking. Over-sized threads make securing it to the line effortless.
