This is the left handed Akios SHUTTLE 551 LSi synchronised levelwind model, and so if you're looking for an automatic line lay multiplier then this is the one to go for.
The little brother of the Akios SHUTTLE 656, this 5500 size reel comes into its own when fishing lighter lines or when paired up with lighter rods.
Featuring a free floating spool system with two integrated ABEC 5 stainless steel bearings, the Akios SHUTTLE can add yards to your cast! The advanced dual braking system, comprising of both centrifugal and magnetic brakes, enables the Akios SHUTTLE to be easily configured for overrun-free casting by the novice, or set fully primed for the competent caster.
The low profile solid aluminium frame rides a whole 5mm lower on the rod, enabling a more secure thumbhold to prevent spool slippage during the cast.
Not only do they look good, with anti-corrosion chromed brass side plates, solid aluminium cage, precision cut hardened brass gears, and stainless steel power handle, Akios SHUTTLE's are built to last!
