TF Gear Force 8 – 6 & 7 Series Multipliers

Posted by Editor On October - 29 - 2010

TFGear Force 8 MultipliersIs it an ABU... is it an Akios... no, it's the 'new' TF Gear Force 8 6-series and 7-series multipliers.

Looking familiar? Thought so. You could be mistaken for thinking that these reels are Akios, but the coloured spools and handle give away that this is a new product. Information is slim on the ground but looking at the specifications over on Fishtec, these reels are pretty much identical to the Akios reels we reported on last month.

To add to the confusion, it looks like Akios have poached Alan Yates as consultant. Or perhaps Akios and TFG have come to some kind of arrangement and this is just a re-badge.

The 6-Series reels are the traditional 6000 size multipliers favoured by beach anglers, while the 7-Series is a 7000 size, suitable for light boat work, uptiding and heavy shore fishing. There are a range of models to suit. The 6-Series features an anodised, red handle and spool, whilst on the 7-Series they are blue. These slight cosmetic alterations are all that set the TFGear Force 8 reels apart from the Akios range.
