Shimano Torsa Featured Highlights
  • High Speed, High Power
    The Torsa features the largest gear Shimano could build. This gear is 22% larger than the Trinidad drive gear and 67% larger than the TLD 25. The amount of power generated by Torsa's drivetrain, oversized handle shank and Ergonomic Power Grip is unbelievable. Two anti-reverse systems, Super Stopper with Assist Stopper, guarantee solid hooksetting power. An oversized drag washer, composed of the same proven material used in the Tiagra 2-Speed series, can generate incredible drag pressures for a reel its size.
  • Castability
    Reducing the overall weight of the spool by meticulous machining means lower startup inertia. At the same time, most of the mass is distributed outward, which results in the spool spinning longer. Variable Brake System (VBS) uses centrifugal force to provide a more consistent spool speed, which translates into a more manageable cast. And lastly, the handle side of the spool is taller than the non-handle side. This extended spool lip gives the angler a very consistent surface to thumb during the cast. It provides more manageability than thumbing the inconsistent surface of the line on the spool.
  • Rapid Fire Quick Change Drag Cam System
    Shimano's new Rapid Fire Quick Change Drag Cam System is found exclusively on Torsa. Within seconds and without tools you can completely change how Torsa is set up to fish. Rapid Fire drag cams are removed by putting the reel into freespool and backing off the preset knob. Then insert one of 8 available Rapid Fire drag cams. (Rapid Fire Cam RF-LRS comes with reel.)
Shimano Torsa Additional Features
  • A-RB Bearings
    A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) are specially treated stainless steel ball bearings that are at least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings.
  • Super Stopper with Assist Stopper
    Super Stopper uses a one-way, stainless steel roller bearing that eliminates backplay. This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. Assist Stopper is a backup system to the Super Stopper that consists of the traditional pawl and ratchet.
  • Forged and Machined Aluminum Components
    Frame, sideplates and spool are made from aluminum, which is first cold forged and then machined. This process results in extremely dense, rigid parts that not only allow the anodization to adhere more deeply for corrosion protection, but also provide a solid, unflexing platform for tight tolerances and precision performance.

Versatile Conventional Reel
January 25, 2014
Great reel for a variety of applications. Quick change drag cam system allows using this one reel for a variety of species or technique specific needs. The standard cam is well suited for most anything. Purchased the 50# bottom fishing can for deep water Yellowtails in Baja. The cam profile allows for a quick head turn to minimize getting "rocked" then tapers down quick and flat to actually fight the fish. Unless the cam profile allows for this you may lose performance in other areas of the curve or freespool. This reel is quality through and through.
Pros:
Quality build. Versatile. Powerful.
Cons:
None.

Great reel - great power, beautiful finish.
January 22, 2014
This reel is worth every penny. I have fished with Trinidads, Internationals, Tiagras, Avets, etc. and this reel is by far the most comfortable as far as its size and power. I will most definitely be purchasing a larger Torsa very soon. Great job Shimano!
Pros:
Small size, incredible power and gearing, big handle, smooth lever drag.
Cons:
High price, but worth every penny.
