Shimano Tyrnos Saltwater Trolling Reels feature an open top crossbar design and Shimano's stainless steel A-RB anti-rust bearings. Other key features designed primarily for trolling are a ratcheting lever drag to eliminate any lever movement caused by boat vibration and a loud clicker with enough tension to hold large baits. Additional features include oversized gears for power while maintaining a high-speed 5.0:1 gear ratio, and an extra long handle shank with an oversized ergonomic rubber power grip. Shimano Tyrnos reels are constructed with diecast aluminum frames and graphite sideplates to reduce weight while maintaining strength and durability.

    TLD upgrade
    May 18, 2019
    Bought this over a TLD 30II, same drag pressure, slightly different gear ratio than the TLD. For $60 more dollars to have a metal body reel with the same performance features of a TLD. Waiting for the wind to die down so I can try to out.

    Great all-around reel
    December 24, 2016
    I bought the Shimano Tyrnos for the bluefin/yellowfin tuna bite that's been happening off Southern California and I was very pleased with this reel. Simple enough by design, strong and powerful it works well with flylining bait and is a good caster. Had a chance to jig some flatfalls and the reel is very functional and smooth in this regard.

    Tyrnos 12
    December 20, 2013
    I have the Tynos 12, and it's a nice reel. It's pretty heavy, but it definately has some power and a nice drag. It also casts pretty well for a reel of that size, but personally, I mostly use it when its in a rod holder most of the day while trolling niner rigs for stripers.

    Tyrnos 12II for long range fishing
    August 20, 2012
    I just returned from my 3rd long range trip using this reel. It has now seen two 7 day traps and one 10 day trip. Mine is spooled with 65lb braid and topped with 40lb mono or flurocarbon (for bait fishing). I use the reel for both yo-yo jigging and bait fishing and I am very satisfied with it. The rell has oversized drags that function very smoothly and plenty of cranking ower. I have boated yellowtail to 40 lbs and tuna to 60+ and have had ZERO complaints. I have officially nick named it the pissy mosquito for it's high speed winding noise. For the price, this reel can't be beat.
    ProsPrice Drag strength and smoothness
    ConsThat darned buzzing noise when you wind it.

    Can it be used for fresh water MAsheer fishing in rivers using lures?? Or should I choose another reels
    1 Answer
    From what I gather on the MAsheer this reel would be way to big but if you want to stay with convetional setups the Shimano torium 16hga would be a good choice.Another reel I would look at would be the Shimano tranX 500hg

    If i was looking at a shimano tyranos 30 for tuna fishing in the Hudson Canyon(both trolling and jigging) what kind of rod would you recommend i pair this with.
    1 Answer
    The Shimano TYR30II Tyrnos Fishing Reel would be a good reel for trolling in at the Husdon Canyon for tuna. The Shimano Terez Casting and the Shimano Tallus Bluewater Casting rods would be great rods to pair with the Shimano TYR30II Tyrnos Fishing Reel. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.

    would this reel be a recommendation for striped marlin and/or mahi or is there a better choice
    1 Answer
    The Tyrnos 20II will work for Striped Marlin and Mahi. However, the Talica 16II would be perfect. It has plenty of line capacity, more drag than the Tyrnos, and weighs 12oz less.

    from Farmingdale, NY asked:
    July 11, 2014
    Sorry one more question if you do not mind. This would be my first Lever Drag Reel. Is the drag weight determined by the maximum drag of the reel by 20-30%? Or is it 20-30% of the weight of the line being used? I would tend to think the latter. Just wanted to be sure. Thank you for your time.
    1 Answer
    The drag used is generally set at 1/3 of the breaking strength of the line within reason and capacities of reel and rod.
