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.

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.

Quality built reel that works great for saltwater bottom fishing. Works flawlessly with no issues so far.

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.

Great Reel
June 20, 2012
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.
