The Shimano Torium Star Drag Reels are new to Shimano's Torium series reels. They are compact, rigid, and powerful saltwater conventional reels with excellent castability and durability expected by saltwater anglers.

  • S Compact Body: Power-Rigidity-Durability, results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand. The B side sideplate is all one piece contributing to both rigidity and in-the-hand palming comfort. The A side side plate has the handle, drag adjustment and cast control knob.
  • E.I.: is a second layer of surface treatment that is added after the anodizing process. This treatment is forced into any micro sized surface impurities, giving salt no place to adhere thus preventing corrosion.
  • Cross Carbon Drag: The ideal material for the high drag pressure setting, with smoothness and consistent performance.

Excellent quality in a small package

The quality of these reels is excellent, however, the new Torium reels are far more compact than their predecessors. If balance and appearance are important to you, you may want to up-size your reel selection.

Strokin dem cali yellows like its going out of style....small frame and large spool makes it very user friendly...took me a little while to get used to this one since i've been using the older models for so long...things kicks butt and is buttery smoothness....get yourself one!!!! Shimano does it again!!!
Prosergonomic(small frame,large capacity spool) lighter than previous models smooth drags exceptional free spool right out of box sexy,clean look

Awesome live bait reel
October 11, 2015
I have been using toriums for many years. I loved the older generation and was a little skeptical of this generation because of the smaller size. However, after using both a 30 and 20 size I really do like these just as well. They are much lighter and just as reliable.
ProsGreat reel for half the cost of the trinidads of equal value in my opinion

Perfect

I have two of the 20s and just got the 16. It will hold 500yrds of 50lb braid and it's like a little tank. Pairing it up with my new St Croix legend surf 11' rod.
ProsSize, value, everything...
ConsNothing

Great reel on price point

I have the older shimano torium 20 and loved it. I went to buy another and saw they have a new model. It's smaller, better, nicer looking. All good things. These are my surf reels I'll use from bull reds, to big jacks, to medium size sharks
ProsPound for pound champ
ConsNothing

Super Smooth!
July 24, 2015
This is an awesome reel. It casts great (I can easily average 40 yard casts on the boat) and reeling it is as smooth as a baby butt. I mainly use it for casting 2-3 ounce irons.

nice real
May 9, 2015
This is a replacement for the first one that I received from Tackle Direct which had a jerky drag. The new one has a much smoother drag much like my other Trinidads and Toriums. Props to Tackle Direct for exchanging the defective one for me.
ProsSmall size, large capacity and casts like crazy. I use on my Lamiglas GSB 1802m !5' surf pole to cast 100 plus yards out into the Willamette and Columbia rivers to catch the mighty White Sturgeon which can grow to over 9' in length and weigh in excess of 300#!
ConsYou can't get it with green stamps!

nice reel for the money
May 3, 2015
Went out around so cali looking for yellowtails. Caught some decent sizes 15-30 pounders. Reel handled them with no problems. But compared to my trinidad it's not as smooth. But the price difference is almost double so can't complain. Other than that good reel.
ProsNice looking reel. Had no issues reeling up 30pound yellowtails.

i am interested in one of these but not sure on the size i should get for Cod fishing in the North East any suggestions?
The Torium 16 would be a good choice for Cod fishing in the NE.

What rod would you pair the 30 with for East Coast bottom fishing for grouper, Snapper, AJ's, etc.?? Thanks!
The Shimano Tallus Blue Water Saltwater Conventional Rods would be a good match with the Shimano Torium 30 for the style of fishing you will be doing.

wes
from CA asked:
April 14, 2015
which size would be better to fly line bait on 50lb braid-30lb floro leader?
Wes, I would recommend Torium 20 for 50 lbs line. It has more than enough line capacity for what you are trying to do.
