From Fin-Norís pioneering days, the sport of big game fishing has been evolving and has become even more advanced in recent years, making the need for quality tackle more critical. And quality tackle is a perfect description for the Santiago, Fin-Nor's finest big game reel ever. The Santiago features the brute strength of a one-piece, fully machined aluminum frame supporting an aluminum spool. Its two speed, push-button and dial release shift system is supported by four ultra-smooth, ultra strong, ceramic-hybrid ball bearings. And, Santiago is finished in Fin-Nor's classic gold anodized corrosion-resistant finish.
- One-Piece Aluminum Frame, Forged Aluminum Spool, 4 Ceramic/Hybrid Ball Bearings
Santiago is perfectly designed and sized for the special needs of today's big game angler. A solid one-piece, fully-machined aluminum frame and one-piece aluminum spool is supported with a machined, stainless steel center-shaft turning on four ultra-smooth and ultra-strong ceramic/stainless hybrid ball bearings.
- Push-Button / Dial-Release Two-Speed Shift System
Santiago reels feature two speeds for quick line pick-up and power on demand. An easy-to-use button pushes in for a powerful low-gear, and easily twists out for high-speed retrieves.
- Santiago Drag System
Revolutionary in its design, Santiago's drag system is big enough, strong enough and smooth enough to fish IGFA-rated mono lines or the heaviest of braided lines. The water-resistant, multi-layer drag system features a durable, over-sized machined Titanium drag plate working in conjunction with additional carbon fiber drag plates to create incredibly smooth, long-lasting drag performance specifically designed to handle strong, long-fighting fish. The Santiago's ''Free'' setting provides completely friction-less spooling with powerful drag at ''Strike'', and extra power at ''Full''.
- Ergonomic Handle Knob
A newly designed, ergonomic handle knob makes Santiago reels comfortable for the angler to fish, and allows you to stay on a fish with greater comfort and control.
- Classic Fin-Nor Gold-Anodized Corrosion Resistant Finish
Distinctive Fin-Nor classic gold anodizing protects Santiago against all of the elements of the ocean and the big game fishing environment.

Fin Nor Santiago 80w Problems
March 3, 2015
i bought 4 of the santiago 80w reels last summer and after only a few trips one of the reels had handle issues where it would bind up and not rotate. soon after the other ones all developed the same problem rendering the reels useless. i had to send all the handles back to fin nor who fought with me over he charge for the new handles. ( they wanted $140 each) needless to say, as soon as i got the new handles on, which was a real pain to do. its not as easy as just unbolting the handle arm. i sold them all. too bad as they were nice feeling reels, but 4 out of 4 suffered same handle break problem.
Prosnice smooth reels
Conshandles on every one santiago 80w i have owned (6 total) has broken in short order. 2 i fixed with new handles only to have it happen again within a few trips out.

After receiving this reel, I am strongly considering selling my Tiagras to buy more. Great quality. Can not speak to durability yet, but out of the box this thing appears top notch.
Welcome back fin-nor!
