Can you walk and chew gum at the same time? Okay, that one was easy. But when trolling can you grab the rod, fight the fish and reel in your downriggers at the same time? Ah hah. That gets a little trickier. Sometimes it's not such a bad idea to have a levelwind feature on your downrigging reels so all you have to think about is winding frantically. Nor does it hurt to have a solid, one-piece graphite frame, a large drag surface and your choice of lever drag on Shimano's Charter Special or star drag on Shimano's TRN. And you can even use both reels for light saltwater applications. Overall, it just makes the whole process a lot less complicated.

Awesome little lever drag

Spent a half hour on this reel spooled with 20lb and hooked to a big drum. These little Shimano lever drags get the job done. That's why I have several of them

This was my first lever drag reel, and I've used it for years for seabass, flounder, and striper. I like the reel, and it gets the job done. It's easy to use, and it spools line very nicely.

Awesome Reels For Downriggers On Lake Michigan

I run a charter boat and use my equipment more in a summer than most weekenders do in a lifetime. I needed to replace my old downrigger reels and bought these. I LOVE THEM. The lever drag lets me consistently set the drag for strikes while in the holder and I can see if the clients are messing with the drag. I have had lots of clients move the drag with star drags, either on purpose or their sleeve of their coat catches the drag and rotates it. No move with these lever drag. Now if Shimano would just make a lever drag linecounter reel my life would be complete LOL
