Shimano TIAGRA 80Wide Game Reel
Shimano’s Tiagra reels have re-written the rules of game fishing. As we all know, one of the fundamental aspects of this sport is that the fish we seek are capable of fighting for hours, repeatedly making long runs that can really heat up a drag. Heat build-up can cause the settings to change, leading to insufficient pressure being put on a fish or, at worst, a broken line. Fortunately, Shimano’s hydrothermal Drag System automatically compensates for any heat build-up, thereby maintaining the original drag setting. What’s more, the Tiagra’s prelubricated graphite drag washer is impervious to salt water and will always operate smoothly.

Offset Ergonomic Power Grip The power grip is offset on multiple axis to allow natural hand, arm and wrist angles to improve comfort and power (not available on TI12 or TI16.)
Ergonomic Power Handle (only on model 12 and 16 models) comfortable, non-slip grip provides maximum comfort and torque.
A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) are specially treated stainless steel ball bearings that are at least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings.
Clicker increases the tension on Freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites.
Metal Series Metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment for increased efficiency and durability.
Chrome Plated Sideplate Screws The sideplate screws are chrome plated to prevent corrosion between the screws and sideplate.
Ratcheting Drag Lever eliminates the chance of the drag lever backing off due to boat vibration, and the detents serve as a reference point as to how much the drag has been increased or reduced.
Twin Pawl Anti-Reverse System uses two pawls for increased reliability and durability along with hooksetting power Drag Force (lbs.)
