Shimano Tiagra 80WA Overhead Game Fishing Reel 2 Speed
Max Drag (kg):
| $1,019.00 |
The Shimano Tiagra A series of 2 speed game fishing reels have been the benchmark for game fishing reels the world over for many years. A quick walk through any marina, or a peek into a well equipped fishing trailer boat, will show just how popular and dominant the Tiagra range of reels have become.
The Shimano Tiagra 80W has been designed for 37kg lines and boasts a maximum drag pressure of 24 Kg. The Shimano Hydrothermal drag system automatically compensates for any heat build up, thus keeping the drag constant. The drag system also features a pre-lubricated graphite drag washer that repels water and a drilled, click stop drag quadrant that is suited to Australian conditions. Combine these features with a calibrated pre-set drag knob and you have the most efficient, state of the art drag system available.
Game fishing reels have to be strong to resist the pressures of extended fights and high drag settings. This is why the Shimano Tiagra 80W's frame is machined from a single piece of aircraft aluminium. The machine cut stainless steel gears are constantly meshed and deliver ratios of 2.5:1 and 1.3:1 at the push of a button. The ratchet, or drag alarm system is over engineered and is the loudest in the business ensuring strikes are never missed. The internal workings of the Tiagra 80W are supported by 4 oversized ball bearings, while extra heavy gold anodizing protects against salt water corrosion, not to mention looks amazing.
When it comes to ergonomics, the Shimano Tiagra 80W is superb. The lever drag, preset knob, gear change and drag alarm adjusters are easily accessible and in the perfect spot. The oversized handle is weighted,so, when unattended, it is always sitting correctly and the handle knob itself remains tacky even through extended battles.
The Shimano Tiagra 80W is the reel of choice for Australian game and sports fishermen when chasing some of the toughest and fastest fish in the ocean like Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mackeral, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sharks etc They also offer superb value with other brands unable to deliver such a quality game fishing reel at this price.
