Tyrnos 12II for long range fishing
August 20, 2012
I just returned from my 3rd long range trip using this reel. It has now seen two 7 day traps and one 10 day trip. Mine is spooled with 65lb braid and topped with 40lb mono or flurocarbon (for bait fishing). I use the reel for both yo-yo jigging and bait fishing and I am very satisfied with it. The rell has oversized drags that function very smoothly and plenty of cranking ower. I have boated yellowtail to 40 lbs and tuna to 60+ and have had ZERO complaints. I have officially nick named it the pissy mosquito for it's high speed winding noise. For the price, this reel can't be beat.
Drag strength and smoothness
Cons:That darned buzzing noise when you wind it.
