Akios Utopia CX8
Tough yet astonishingly lightweight at just 580g, the Akios UTOPIA CX8 is a new breed of high performance long distance casting reels from Akios capable of landing specimen sized fish. Engineered for maximum casting potential, the UTOPIA CX8's slow oscillation delivers truly exceptional line lay across the full length of the angled lip long cast spool resulting in significantly reduced line friction and tangibly greater casting distances. The lightweight design not only offers a more balanced feel on the rod, more importantly it allows for improved hand speed during the cast, improving acceleration through the swing and adding yards to the cast. Line recovery is swift with 100cm of line retrieved in a single turn of the handle, taking strain out of hauling in end gear after a long cast and bringing fish to shore quickly. A total of 6 shielded stainless steel bearings and a worm drive gearing mechanism ensure a super smooth operation on the retrieve, whilst the impressively powerful, quick set drag is on stand-by to provide absolute control of hard running fish as and when required.
