great reel for vertical jigging, plus a lot more...
March 24, 2016
I have two of these reels, a STTLD20-2SPD, and a similar STTLD30-2SPD - these reels are very similar, the only difference being the 30 has a wider spool for greater line capacity. I use them for bottom fishing (vertical jigging) in Newfoundland for large cod in 150-400' of water, loaded with 50-65 pound PowerPro line. These are outstandingly excellent reels. Both the quality of craftsmanship and the performance of the reels in action are outstanding. The high gear is excellent for picking up and retrieving a deep jig (with no fish on it) quickly back to the boat when planning a move to another location or to switch or re-bait lures - saves a lot of time - IT IS NOT FOR FIGHTING FISH. The low gear is excellent for cranking big fish off the bottom and fighting fish back to the boat. Switching gears is very easy. The drag is very smooth and performs well, although it's fine adjustment is a rather small knurled nob, not a 'star-drag'. Despite its small size, this is a very powerful reel. I expect it would handle small to medium sized tuna, mahi-mahi, sharks et c.
ProsSuperb workmanship, compact size, powerful, low maintenance, very tough durable reel.
ConsThe drag fine adjustment is a rather small knurled nob - takes a bit of getting used to. Expensive but worth the price.

Great Reel

Great reel for vertical jigging handles well and is very durable after trip after trip ;however, i wish that the price would be lower because its very difficult to come up with the amount of money especially on a student salary.
ProsVery smooth drag and is excellent for vertical jigging works especially well with a spinal rod.
ConsI wish the price was lower since its extremely difficult to obtain the money being that I'm a student and have to focus much of my time studying rather than working.

How do you pick out what size to get
We would recommend to base it off the line capacity that you need.

Size is always in a question. Look at four things: 1) how heavy do you want your reel. Are you jigging all day with the the reel in your hand or just trolling in a holder. 2) line capacity. Fast hard hitting runners, deep drop, or just near shore. Fish like kings and sharks take a lot of line fast 3) retrieve speed and power. Fast retrieve for lures and jigging then power for hook up and landing. May want two speed reel. Nothing beats low gear when bringing in a large fish. 4) Finally how much drag do you want. This will be determined by the type and size of your target fish. Big grouper, AJs, Kings can smoke a light weight drag. Your style of fishing may help you determine this also. Do you like to use heavy line and just crank in the fish or do you use lighter weight line and play the fish for all its worth. Usually once you determine the drag all else falls in place.
