Shimano Tiagra A-Series 20lb Class 2-Speed Lever Drag Trolling Reel
The Shimano Tiagra 20A Trolling Reel is a great choice for smaller offshore species such as Dorado, Sailfish, School Tunas and may others. Anglers often spool these Fishing Reels with 20lb test monofilament to get the required line capacity.
These reels can achieve an amazing amount of drag pressure, to maximize your reel you should fill with 80lb Hollow-Core Spectra with a small topshot.
All Tiagras bodies and spools are constructed from Solid Bar-Stock Aluminum for strength and durability. The gears are all treated high-quality Stainless Steel for years of dependability.
All Tiagra’s feature Shimano’s famed 2-speed mechanism which has both gears always engaged for instant transmision from speed to power or vice-versa.
For extreme stopping power Shimano has introduced the Hydrothermal Drag System, this eliminates surges in drag pressures during prolonged battles. The Hydrothermal Drag System constantly cools the drag plates as it heats up during battle. This specialized mechanism has not been duplicated by any other company.
Tiagra 20-A Features:
A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings)
Our specially treated stainless steel ball bearings are at least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings.
These spools are made from cold forged aluminum then machined to provide an extremely dense, solid construction that can withstand the heavy drag pressures the reels can apply.
Chrome Plated Sideplate Screws
The sideplate screws are chrome plated to prevent corrosion.
Uses 2 sets of gears that are always engaged for quick, easy gear ratio changes even under load.
Ratcheting Drag Lever
Eliminates the chance of the drag lever backing off due to boat vibration and allows for more precise adjustment.
The clicker increases the tension on freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites.
The handle grip material, Septon, is soft to the touch and does not get slippery when wet
This lubrication improves freespool while maintaining protection and durability of moving parts.
With the Metal Series, metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment for increased efficiency and durability.
These frames are machined from solid aluminum pipestock, which makes them incredibly rigid and strong for ultra tight tolerances.
The power grip is offset on multiple axes to allow natural hand, arm and wrist angles to improve comfort and power.
Comfortable, non-slip grip provides maximum comfort and torque.
