The Akios Airloop R10 surf casting reel is a true casting machine with exceptional line lay, meaning your line comes of the spool super smoothly helping you get into the bite zone.
The Akios R10 is one of the best surfcasting reels on the market built for the serious surf fisherman, it is the long spool (10mm longer) version of the Airloop R8 offering even greater line capacity and distance than the R8.
All the additional features are the reasons why this is a true casting machine, for exmaple the Akios R10 offers super slow oscillation, laying a phenomenal 54 turns of line per cycle on the tournament length spool resulting in truly exceptional line lay. This 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. It is the reel of choice should you be seeking those extra metres when surfcasting.
Equipped with an impressive 8+1 stainless steel ball bearings and a worm drive gearing mechanism, not only is the Airloop R10 silky smooth, it's incredibly tough too. The speed drag system allow the drag to be tightened up with just a fraction of a turn allowing hard running fish to be instantly tamed.
