I bought a akios 100ld and got hybrid ceramic bearings + magged by jamie in PMR . best reel ive ever owned by far. Its easy to service . smooth like butter and it just feels incredibly built. Im considering buing the 120ld. they are boat reels but with the mags installed are great for the beach.

Just recently got an Akios Fireloop , very tough , very smooth, excellent casting and retrieve. Line lay is perfect every time, it's improved my distance casting considerably, although I haven't put it to the test yet, in terms of beach casting. Great value.

Quality reels no doubt just cannot abide the blatant copying of Abu's style.

I think Akios's owner/founder is a former Abu Garcia employee?
