We have a hand full of the Torium 30's. They are spooled with 80lb braid, and have a 25' top shot of mono. They are great reels for the money, plenty of stopping power, and the clicker is strong enough for freelining to blackfin tuna and king mackerel.

As an avid Shimano user, I do have a tendency to be bias during these reviews. Rest assured, I do speak my mind about a product either positive or negative. With this all said, this reel is hands down one of the best reels I have had the pleasure of using! I primarily use this reel for targeting deep water offshore bottom species. And always jig. This reel is light enough for me to be able to jig all day, every day during a 2 day offshore trip, without me needing Tylenol! Smooth drag and great gear ratio let's me rip my jigs through the water and boat a fish with ease in 300' plus! I have it matched with a Trevela F Butterfly Rod. If you are not a big fan of the lever drag reels fishing offshore, than this is the reel for you. I would recommend this reel to anyone that prefers star drags and fishes offshore.
ProsGreat price, smooth drag, light weight, versital, ability to fish deep water wreck/reef fishing
ConsWould like to see Shimano offer a larger power handle

I use a Torium 30 for deep dropping tilefish and seabass. The reel is perfect for this. I give this reel a 4 star because they are known for the internal gearing to lockup/break. I have owned 2 of these for the last 4-5 years and only one of them had this problem. I had to have a tackle shop replace the gearing. They told me that this happens sometimes to the Toriums. Besides that...the reel is perfect for what I want it to do.
ProsGood for the price
Conspossible gearing issues
