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.

  • Graphite Frame

  • A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings)

Very Satisfied

I first used these reels on a friend's boat and was impressed with how one handled a foul hooked White Marlin. I figured I couldn't go wrong buying a pair to use for inshore Striped Bass trolling. They are smooth, rugged, have an excellent drag system and are priced right.

Great Reel, Smooth Drag, Very Lightweight
January 16, 2013
I purchased 2 of these TLD-20's to put on a pair of Penn Mariner Standup rods (630CMST) that I had recently purchased. I plan to utilize these combos for pulling deep-diving plugs (Rapala X-Rap Magnums, Bomber CDs, MirrOlure 111MRs, etc.). The reels matched up perfectly with the rods, and I can't wait to get the line spooled on them (150 yds of Rapala 50 lb Titanium Stretch braid over 250 yds of 40 lb Yo-Zuri hybrid fluoro-mono line. I'm very pleased with the reels so far,and one of the reasons I purchased these reels is their reputation for long and satisfactory service.
ProsSmooth Drag Very Lightweight Great Reputation
ConsI wish they would modernize the handles, and maybe utilize something a little more like the "soft-grip" handles I have on my Avet reels.
