thinking of getting a second reel, I have an original penn 525mag, what's everybody's opinion on the competition?
If Penn's are "Crud" why you put them as your favourite reel in your profile? :roll1::roll1:abu 6500 ct mag elites they cast futher than any other reel penn 525s every 1 loves them personly i think there crud not a good reel at all
sorry penn 525 users
problem with that is until someone, with enough money to waste on a reel they might not like, steps up to the plate to buy and try then its a bit of a lottery. we all know sea angler aint give a company a bad report as its been well documented on here about a certain rod company:shutup::shutup:What about the new AKIOS, there are 6 models to choose from, its got a good write up in Sea Angler, on sale from Aug 1st.

agree abu mags will cast further but will they stand up to years of punishment without mechanical failure or the need for meticulous maintenance? Distance has a lot more to do with the ability of the caster on the end of the rod than the equipment being used, a properly set up 525 mag or supermag in the hands of a competant caster will fly well over 200 yds they will also stand up to years of use and abuse over rough ground, generally a better built reel in my opinion.
