The Shuttle is the flagship model in the Akios range and has all the features you would expect on a high quality casting reel.
Its blend of top quality materials and precision engineering results in a reel which performs on both grass and beach. It is a stunning looking reel with the most noticeable feature being the super strong one piece extruded open CT frame. From this rock solid base Akios have added a lightweight spool which sits via two inboard stainless ball bearings on a new larger spindle. The larger spindle combined with quality brass anti-corrosion chromed side plates helps to prevent spool distortion during the build up to a powerful cast.
The spool is controled by both centrifugal and magnetic braking so you can set the perfect level of control for long smooth tangle free casts.
This all combines to make the 656SCM Shuttle a very competent fishing/casting reel
