For a reels of its size and solidity, the Akios Fireloop must be one of the lightest in its class. It’s lack of weight belies its strength, and even when winding under extreme pressure and it’s seven ball bearings ensure it stays smooth, with little or no spool movement from the sturdy spindle.
Ultimately what I really love about this reel is its no nonsense simplicity. Its a work horse that has some excellent design elements which have been incorporated to help you catch fish, not just catch the eye. Although it is a little stunner to look at as well!
All the best with your fishing,
