ive got the old penn 525 mag slideys & i reckon you wont find a better allrounder i fish both clean & rough ground with mine there getting on abit now but still work fine also got the newer mag xtra the build quality is not as good as the older reels imo have not used the mag2 or the akios shuttle so cant comment on these:fishing1:

all 3 reels you mentioned are great reels and will suit your rods down to a t , the shuttle is a fantastic reel mega smooth very well built and solid , if i was you i would buy 2 shuttles for your clean ground and distant work and 2 penn mags for you heavyer work , but in reality 2 penn 525'swill do all your fishing from the rough stuff to clen beaches well made reels very solid cant go wrong with the akios or the penns
