excellent reel for bottom fishing and 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.
Proscompact, powerful, 2nd speed allows for fast retrieves, low maintenance
Consdrag adjustment knob is a little small (not a big deal once you get used to it)

Great Boat Reel

This is a great boat reel for the Gulf of Mexico. You get all the power and torque of a much larger reel, just with less line capacity.

High gear troubles
January 31, 2013
Reel looks and feels great but, as you add more drag to fight heavy fish the reel gets almost to hard to reel in high speed (when fighting big fish over structure need high speed to get out then can use low speed). You have to put in low speed to even have a chance to pull fish up from down deep because of high speed drag problems. I have the single speed in same size and it works great .
ProsLooks weight size
Conswhen add drag to fight heavy fish (in high speed) very hard to reel If drag problems fixed this would be a great 2 speed reel at a good price.

from Fl. asked:

How does this compare with the Abu Garcia blue yonder for surf fishing?
Mark, Both reels are excellent. The Blue yonder will be a better casting reel, the Diawa would be better for vertical jigging.
