The Shimano Torium 20PG Vortex Jigging Combo is one tough combo that strikes the perfect balance between quality and value. It comes with a heavy-duty Vortex rod that’s very versatile and can be used for many different situations. Team it up with the ruggedly built and feature-packed Shimano Torium reel and you have a combination that you can use anywhere.
The lightweight Shimano Torium 20PG Overhead Reel is a solidly-built star-drag saltwater reel perfect for live bait or bottom-fishing applications. It's packed with features like Super Stopper, Cross Carbon Drag, Anti-Rust Bearings, High-Efficiency Gearing, and Hagane Body. When it comes to being packed with all the right stuff, the Torium has it where it counts.
The Hagane Body is produced from high rigidity aluminum or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is rock-solid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and creates greater efficiency throughout the reel.
Shimano S-ARB bearings are high-corrosion-resistant ARB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt, or dust.
Super Free Spool
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and the spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. This creates zero friction on the spool shaft for increased free spool.
Cross Carbon Drag
This carbon drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
S Compact Body
This is a compact body designed to reduce weight and allow for better grip and leverage while fighting fish.
The Shimano Vortex Overhead Rod features a Power-Carbon blank specially designed to take the knocks, with an integrated glass tip that retains sensitivity from the bite to the fit. With its enhanced overall performance without compromise, you can take full advantage of more traditional bait fishing techniques. It's the perfect match for the Shimano Baitrunner series.
