This high performance rod and reel combination is ideal for the serious beach angler that's seeking to upgrade their shore set up.

This combo deal features the new and improved Akios AIRSPEED 435 MKII BLACK EDITION rod. Constructed from a new grade of nano-carbon material for improved strength, and featuring a spyrowrap butt section for even greater power, the AIRSPEED BLACK EDITION offers impressive casting performance with a simple overhead thump whilst the hybrid tip provides the sensitivity to detect the shyest of bites.

The Akios AIRSPEED MKII BLACK EDITION's striking looks will turn the heads of envious anglers right along the beach, but more importantly, the outstanding casting performance will enable baits to be sent out further and cover a wider expanse of ground than ever before. This rod is a serious piece of kit for serious anglers and is a firm favourite amongst the top match and recreational anglers.

The Akios UTOPIA SX8 is a new breed of high performance long distance casting reels from Akios capable of landing specimen sized fish. Boasting a tough yet ultra-lightweight full carbon body weighing in at a truly incredible 530g; the UTOPIA SX8 is the lightest reel of its kind ever produced by Akios! Equipped with a powerful 39lb quick set carbon drag system, the Utopia SX8 packs a punch too!

Supplied with three spools, a deep and shallow aluminium spool, and a shallow Teflon spool, together with both a torpedo power grip handle and wooden barrel handle, the UTOPIA SX offers the serious angler a high performance, ultra lightweight reel.
