Akios has some great new spining reals in 3500, 4000, 5000, and 6000 size. I've been testing them along with friends and they are really holding up nice. Comparable to Shimano in the $225 range for a whole lot less. I shouldn't say comparable because the last Shimano, Penn, Daiwa, and Abu spinners I've bought are junk. They have a closed spool that dosent collect sand like many of the new stuff out.
