SHIMANO TIAGRA TROLLING REEL

2013-02-01T11:29:10

2/1/2013 11:29:10 AM 4 of 5 stars 4 out of 5 stars

Plus:
1:Solid built.All aluminum material. Not diecast.
2:Loudest clicker alarm to signal a strike while trolling.
3:Easy pre-set dial for adjustment of pre-set drag.
4:4 ball bearing for the smooth turning of the reel spool.
5:Solid one piece rod clamp.
6:Large disc drag material.
7:Available in various models.
Minus:
1:Left side plate is not one piece.Meaning you can remove both sides which is not a good thing.As these are held by screws. Eventhough the reel cage is one piece.
2:Older model other than the "A" version,has the tendency for the lever drag to slide downwards due to the vibration of the boat while trolling.Newer model resolves this issues.
3:Reel footings are rivet to the reel cage.It would be nice if it can be made thicker and screw mounted.
Conclusion:
Not a bad product if you consider to buy them.These are made to last.I have used them for numerous fishing trips and have yet to send them in for servicing.The version that I owe is the Tiagra 50W.The reel has been with me almost a decade.
Pick one of those reel bag to go along with your reel as these can provide the necessary protection such as when you packed them into your suit-case for those long trips.It will serve as a protection from those harmful UV rays which can damage your line.
Above all,you can fish with confidence with this reel.

the toughest real money can buy

I used the biggest one of this set of reels to catch tiger sharks of the east coast. I landed a 2,500 lb.
one on this reel.
It's the best and the toughest money can buy.

TI-16 is worth the green

best conventional reel I ever bought. Its light weight compared to what you can pull in.
I spooled 200 yards 80lb power pro and finished it off with 50lb momoi brilliant blue mono and haven't seen the braid since.

Excellent Choice

The Shimano Tiagra 2-spd reels are an excellent choice for big game fish trolling.
They are tough, strong and smooth.
One of the most important features for me is the extra loud clicker, it can be heard over engine noise at trolling speeds.

Work it

I have been working on charter boats in Dauphin island Alabama for four years. Of all of the trolling combos, the tiagra is the most numerous. Countless captains and deckhands as myself love these reels. The drag is so much smoother than the competitors. These reels are built to last! Weekend after weekend we reel in 170 pound tuna and these things have yet to break!
I love this product as a deckhand and a fisherman!
