Akios reels have already gained an enviable reputation as good casting reels and this new Tourno model has been tuned to maximise this casting performance.
It has the same tough build as the Shuttle models but the Tourno benefits from an all new ‘MM’ MONO MAG system. This gives a longer stroke of the magnet on and off of the spool and at the full ‘off’ setting the spool is completely free of any magnetic force. The spool is therefore able to spin at its maximum speed which can help you to achieve greater distances. The extra large MONO MAG adjuster knob makes it easy to adjust the setting ‘mid cast’ o that you can keep the reel running at ts optimum performance
The Tourno comes with two sets of bearings. It is factory fitted with the standard high quality steel bearings and a set of the new AKIOS ceramics are included in the box.
The gear ratio has also been upped to 6.3:1 so that you can quickly retrieve the extra line you have cast out…..
The 666 has the same diameter spool as the other Tourno models but the 666 spool is wider giving you an increased capacity of 330m x 0.35mm
