Shimano Tekota 500

Shimano’s Tekota reels continue to dominate the medium to heavy levelwind overhead market, simply because these no-nonsense reels are packed with features traditionally found only on the company’s top-of-the line overheads.

With extra strong gears and sensible retrieve ratios of 4.2:1, robust level winds, and super smooth Dartanium drag washers that release line without a hiccup, these reels are versatile enough to be used in a wide range of fishing situations, but have also proven to be excellent braid reels. Spooled with 24-50 kilo gel spun, the TEK800 in particular, has proven to be a superlative deepwater heavy braid weapon.

The rubberised Septon CPD grip is extremely comfortable to use and the adjustable counter-balanced power handle means working a heavy jig or cranking in a big fish isn’t a problem. Three of Shimano’s patented stainless steel A-RB bearings means that winding is silky smooth, while backplay in the system is eliminated through the presence of a Super Stopper one way-roller bearing.

The aluminium spool, die-cast aluminium frame and one-piece aluminium handle sideplate mean Tekotas also make great casting reels and they can be hand-held all day without fatiguing the angler.

Capacities for the reels’ chosen line classes are excellent, with the TEK500 taking 440 metres of six kilo, the TEK600 390 metres of eight kilo, the TEK700 410 metres of 12 kilo, and the TEK800 450 metres of 15. Naturally, these capacities are increased if braided line is used.

And of course, the entire Tekota range is backed by Shimano’s exclusive ten-year warranty, so what more could discerning anglers possibly want from a medium-heavy levelwind reel?
