Alijos is the replacement for the Andros?

For anyone interested this is now on the Okuma site.


It appears to be a less expensive model for the Andros.

I guess I'll just check it out at Fred Hall.

Piscifun has a reel by the same name. It’s a low profile 300 size baitcaster. I didn’t know that was possible?

I think Alijos can be considered as the Andros replacement as the revived budget Cavalla is the Metaloid replacement. Perfect Tib handle like the Mak and how I wish Alijos has the Thrust Bearing too.

I am almost up to the point of pulling the trigger next week on this reel but now I just bought 3 andros before hearing about the new Alijos. Hoard first sell later.

Lets Do it! I’m grabbing one and searching for any available retailers who can deliver it to me ASAP!😂....and I’l send them my money right away.

Sell your Andros....I had both my 5N-AII & 5A-AII sold last year after a couple of seasons used & gotten my money back.😁

Wait so they're not going to be available at the Fred Hall next week? They're just announcing it? :mad: Keeping the orange Andros though. The color one the Alijos look so sick. Probably going with the narrow 5.

I am not sure but I just contacted my Tackle shop and ask them to include this ALIJOS in the order that I’l be making with the MAKAIRA 10th Anniversary BLUE CAMO Edition. Waiting for their feedback yet.

This I agree on but for $400 it's really making me reconsider.
Follow your heart brother not your wallet.....money are here to spend and we cant bring it in heaven or hell if there is any lol...😂🤣😅

I promise once you get hold of a reel you like, that $400 thing is nothing to think about lol 😂🤣😅

Do you ever use the 2nd speed on your 5n?
I have a MXL with a 2 speed and have used a SX single speed but have never felt the need for it. Have you? I've seen it become more and more popular on smaller reels but personally I don't see the application for it.
