You don't need a big boat to catch big fish. In fact, there's absolutely no reason why you couldn't catch a 250-pound thresher shark from your 20-foot center console boat. Unless you left your Shimano TLD at home. If you own a small fishing boat, or you often find yourself elbow-to-elbow with your angling compatriots on the large party boats, you need a reel that's both nimble and versatile. The Shimano TLD reels are light in hand, so easy to shift they're almost mindless, and they're adaptable to any number of bluewater species from tuna to striped marlin. And because they're built by Shimano, durability is an inevitable part of the package. A large, private, ocean-going vessel may be neat, but it's not necessary. Just match the tackle to the situation. And let the fish fall where they may.
Lever Drag
Freespool or the perfectly dialed-in strike drag. With Shimano's lever drag reels - including Tiagra and all Shimano TLD reels - you won't make a mistake. Whether you need to back off quickly when a marlin starts its surface dance, or full drag pressure when a tuna goes deep and circles, you can rely on Shimano's lever drag to do the job.

Shimano TLD features:
  • Graphite Frame
  • Graphite Sideplate
  • Aluminum Spool
  • Rod Clamp
  • Barrel Handle Grip
  • A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings)
  • Clicker
  • Counter Balanced Handle (TLD 15 only)
  • Approved for use in Saltwater
  • Rated for use with Mono, Fluorocarbon and PowerPro lines

Which rod would you recommend pairing this reel with? We will be using it mainly for Striped Bass fishing off the coast of southern NJ, usually using 16oz Mojo lures.
The Penn Rampage Conventional Boat Rods would pair well with the Shimano TLD-15 Triton Lever Drag Reel.

Does this reel have a line guide that when you reel the line in it puts it on the spool evenly?
Hello Brent. No, unfortunately this reel does not come with a level wind. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions!

I am interested in this reel as a gift for my father. I have been reading the reviews on it and I found one that says this particular reel is prone to breakage with an internal pin that shears off. I am curious to know how common this is in your experience and if it is repairable? Above is the link that describes what I am speaking about. On that note, what size fish is this reel rated for? My father goes out on 3/4 day head boats out of San Diego and we recently got into a school of yellowfin tuna in the 20-40lb range. We were catching them on old Penn 155's and a Jigmaster spooled with 25lb mono. Would this reel be a good replacement for him going for smaller yellowfin tuna and yellowtail of similar size? Or should I step up to the next size reel? Thank you for your assistance.
We have heard about this issue however, we have not experienced it. The TLD-15 can handle fish up to 100#. He would be very well equipped for the fish he would encounter with this reel.
