Specifically designed to offer extreme casting distances, the Akios AIRLOOP R8 is the reel of choice should you be seeking extra yardage. A true casting machine, the AIRLOOP offers super slow oscillation, laying a phenomenal 54 turns of line per cycle on the tournament length spool resulting in truly exceptional line lay. The precise laying of line on the spool significantly reduces frictional drag as the line peels off the spool leading to substantial gains in casting distances.
Equipped with an impressive 8+1 stainless steel ball bearings and a worm drive gearing mechanism, not only is the AIRLOOP silky smooth, it’s incredibly tough too. The speed drag system allows the drag to be tightened up with just a fraction of a turn allowing hard running fish to be instantly tamed.
