The Shimano Torium Star Drag Reels are new to Shimano's Torium series reels. They are compact, rigid, and powerful saltwater conventional reels with excellent castability and durability expected by saltwater anglers.

  • S Compact Body: Power-Rigidity-Durability, results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand. The B side sideplate is all one piece contributing to both rigidity and in-the-hand palming comfort. The A side side plate has the handle, drag adjustment and cast control knob.
  • E.I. is a second layer of surface treatment that is added after the anodizing process. This treatment is forced into any micro sized surface impurities, giving salt no place to adhere thus preventing corrosion.
  • Cross Carbon Drag: The ideal material for the high drag pressure setting, with smoothness and consistent performance.

Great all-rounder for my lightweight SoCal setup for bonito and yellowtail!

Casts super well with a 42g Colt Sniper and surface irons. Even hooked up with a Black Sea Bass and it held its own drag wise. Replaced a Daiwa Lexa. For this old school finger line winder coming from Newell's back in the 80s, this is a dream and inexpensive.
ProsSmall and packs a punch
ConsHolds a lot less line than the 16 and drag is less.

I purchased the Torium14H by Shimano. I paired it with a Jigging World Black Demon 7ft 6 m rod. It is like theyre made for each other..I love the smooth performance of the reel, star drag is exact and the fast return a must for deep sea bottom fishing. I reccomend.!

Star drag allows me to freespool then immediately pop to my drag I had it pre-set at which is great for when you don't need adjustments

Handled well for my bottom fishing in Ensenada, Mexico. It's smooth reeling almost* felt like my Talica 16 ii.
ProsWell built
ConsThe composite reel clamp, even a simple stainless steel clamp piece would be better SHIMANO.

This reel is so smooth, the drag and retrieval.
It casts great, live bait and irons. Plus 24 lbs of drag, u can really put the hurting on the fish.
It's a perfect all around reel and for the price it's a win-win.

My son and I fish offshore of Port Canaveral every weekend. Nice smooth reel and like the new handle. Reel handels large reds, mangoes, and muttons as long as you reel them fast enough to get them away from the tax man.

Good solid well built reel, with ample cranking power with oversized handle sufficient drag to handle most situations. Fishing in New England like most other places you have no idea what you'll catch this reel can handle them all!
ProsPower handle, wide drag range, cast ability
ConsNot the most balanced reel one side much heavier than the other

Would the Size 20 or 30 be more suitable for Bottom Fishing for Red Snapper in 120ft-300ft of water using up to 10oz of Lead? What Terez Rod would go best with it?
1 Answers
Both reels are about the same size but the 30 will give you a advantage with line capacity, the rod you should pair it with is the 6'6" heavy Terez, here is the link:https://www.tackledirect.com/shimano-tzcx66hblk-terez-conventional-fishing-rod-black.html

What's the difference between the Torium 20 and the Torium 20 HG, does the HG perform better?
1 Answers
The Torium 20 HGA reels are newer to the Shimano line. This reel is a bit lighter and has changed in color to years past. Shimano is always looking to make reels better and the Torium HGA reels are just that.

Would this be a suitable trolling reel for targeting Dorado?
1 Answers
I would check out the Talica or the TLD for trolling for Dorado. The Torium is perfect for bottom fishing or maybe jigging. But, it is not a good reel for trolling.
