Default Akios reels ?

Does anyone here use them ? If so what models ? Looking to gain some casting distance for the surf.

I know there's at least one guy on here who uses them. I remember him posting a thread last year sometime saying that he uses one for surf casting for sharks. He was having problems with breakoffs & he was asking for advice. Wish I could remember his name so you could ask him about them... Either way, I've heard they're excellent reels. Essentially just upgraded Abu Ambassadeurs.

good quality reels at a reasonable price.However the reel alone won't help you with distance.
