TLD two speed reels have long been the choice for anglers requiring the reliability and benefits of reduced weight from a graphite-framed overhead, coupled with a lower gear option for shifting stubborn fish. Tolerances are tight for use with braided lines like Power Pro, the oversize handles on the 50 and 50LRS are the same as the Tiagra overheads, and chrome-plated brass handle shanks give them real cranking power.
Changing gears is quick and easy since the dual drive and pinion gears continuously mesh. The waterproof stainless steel ball-bearing graphite drags are smooth and known for their longevity. The A-RB bearings are treated with a special coating that makes them ten times more resistant to corrosion than ordinary stainless steel ball bearings. A stainless steel reel foot anchors the reel firmly in place. A sturdy aluminium die-cast spool holds up to the compressive forces of a tightly wound line.
The Shimano Triton Lever Drag TLD-50 2-Speed Game Reel is lightweight. When you’re standing at the rail struggling to get a fish in, you don’t need to fight the weight of the reel as well. Frames are made of XT-7; a lightweight material that is much more resistant to stress and torque than graphite and exhibits greater resistance to wear.
