SHIMANO TORSA LEVER-DRAG BAITCASTING REELS


SKU: SHMTS     (Add to wish list)

Shimano Torsa Series Hi-Speed Lever-Drag Jigging / Casting Reels



Shimano has a fondness for setting the bar high when it comes to standards with technological innovation. They have done it again when the company took baitcasting to a whole new level with the very peculiar looking reel. The Shimano Torsa Series fishing reels are a dream come true in terms of flexibility for offshore and inshore anglers alike. This incredibly versatile new fishing reel promises to deliver more speed, more power, more versatility, and improved castability, all with a greater level of refinement than ever before seen in a single premium Fishing Reel.

One defining feature of the Shimano Torsa Reels are their Rapid-Fire Interchangable Drag Cams. Shimano's Rapid Fire Quick Change Drag Cam System enables the versatile Torsa reel to cater to specific fishing techniques. By inserting one of 9 available Rapid Fire drag cams, you completely change how the reel is set up to fish within a matter of seconds. No tools required, and no screws to fall onto the deck of the boat.

 

 

 

 

Shimano Torsa Features:
  • Forged & Machined Aluminum Frame, Spool and Sideplates
  • Super Stopper
  • Ratcheting Drag Lever
  • Ergonomic Power Handle
  • Clicker
  • Metal Series
  • Harness Lugs
  • S A-RB (Shielded A-RB Bearings)
  • A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) Roller Bearing
  • Redundant Anti-Reverse System (Oversized Roller Bearings and Spring-loaded Ratchet and Pawl)

 

High Speed, High Power, extremely castable, with interchangeable drag cams for any blue water fishing scenario you’ll encounter.
 

When designing Torsa reels, one main goal was to redefine all current ideas about speed and power. Traditionally, lower gear ratio means more power, and higher gear ratio means less power.

This remained true until the release of the Trinidad reel. Trinidad reels were equipped with High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) which, by using a rigid platform and oversized gears, proved that the dream of high speed with high power was a reality.

So with the release of Torsa reels, Shimano included the largest gear they could build. This gear is 22% larger than the Trinidad drive gear and 67% larger than the venerated TLD 25 reels.

The amount of power generated by Torsa’s drive train, oversized handle shank and Ergonomic Power Grip is unbelievable. Along with today’s super braided lines, it will usher in new meaning to “sizing down” to tackle powerful game fish.

Also contributing to the power of the reel is a Super Stopper one-way roller bearing with Assist Stopper back-up ratchet anti-reverse system. The system has no back play for solid hook setting power and the reliability of two anti-reverse systems.

The oversized drag washer, can generate incredible drag pressures for a reel its size, and is created using the same proven material used in the Tiagra series reels of 2-Speed lever drag reels.
