Anybody ever use a Akios 555 shuttle reel ? Im very happy with my Abu Garcia Rocket but always looking for a few more yards casting. Thanks

I got a 5500 spool, frame and other components from them, haven't had a chance to use it yet. Very well made parts though, I'd imagine their reels are well made. They look top shelf

yeah I got one. It's one of the best stock casters I have. I would not use it on anything big though.

Many thanks for the replies. I will probably have to get one at some point soon.

Perfect of calicos, might have a hard time turning a big yellow heading for the rocks

How big is too big? I was think for calico bass and the occasional yellowtail.
Easily handle calicos. I have seen frame twist on some larger bull reds >40. Bull reds do not fight as hard as yellowtail though.

Thanks for the quick reply you guys. I've always wanted to try out a Akios Dynamo in orange.
