Good quality reel for swimbait fishing, very basic though.
IMO you get more from the Cardiff.

Great reel for Big Cats

Use it for Catfishing and so far great results. I like the Ambassadeur Big Game Series reels and have used them for years but thought I would give the Akena a try since I would save a few dollars. Worth the Money.

I have one of these, rebuilt it twice, not that great, doesn't cast well. How ever its big brother the isis is an amazing reel save up for that! With my isis i can cast just as far as a calcutta te, and further! and its half the price

The akena is one of the best reels Ive encounter, prefer it over the calcutta 400 . Smooth and it cast excellent as the calcutta . I have two calcutta and would trade them for another akena any day of the week.
