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

Love the TLD line
November 19, 2019
The TLD line is an amazing entry level reel that will be there for years even on charter boats I've seen, my only downside to this one is the knob. If they just made all their TLD lines with a football or round knob these reels would take over the entry level field

Great surf reel
October 29, 2019
I bought it to put on a 20~40 1954 12' Yellow Fenwick. I restored the rod all new guides and rewrapped it & I knew I wanted this reel for the rod. I've used TLD reels since the 90's great for casting, trolling and jigging. . I can use it on my surf rod or troll for kingfish & Dolphin in my kayak in the Gulf.

Best bang for your buck

I personally love the TLD series reels. If you’re on a budget, and looking for a quality reel, this is definitely it. I have a tld 20 and 30 and absolutely love them. I’m honestly thinking about adding more to my arsenal for the 2020 season. If you’re beginning to fish for big game fish, the Shimano TLD reels are where it’s at!!

Another classic and great reel from Shimano
December 16, 2018
I have 2, one is at least 10 years old, of these and a 25 and they are really great reels. They guy who cleans and services my reels in the off season, joking, said he doesn't service TLDs because they are too well built! We've never had an issue with any of them, even the one that's at least 10 years old. There's a reason everyone I spoke with about a trolling reel said to get a TLD.
ProsBest bang for the buck reel out there.

Good bang for the buck
July 26, 2018
These reels are a workhorse on our boat. They are the ones I give the novices so I don’t have to worry about them getting messed up. They handle the abuse. I’ve has them for 5+ years only disassembled once for a full cleaning and maintenance.
ProsGreat reels for the price and can handle abuse and neglect without issue.
ConsThe retrieval handle could be improved but is solid.

Added 2 of these for off shore trolling in NC. Great for spanish, king, mahi and reef fish like grouper and Amberjack. Smooth drag, decent line retrive. Will be adding more as my squidders wear out.

The standard for saltwater reels
January 12, 2016
When I started getting into the bigger fish and heavier duty fishing equipment I started searching for what reels to get. There's no other reel that's recommended more than the TLD25. For a fraction of the price of the high end reels you can catch pretty much anything in the ocean (realistically) with this reel. After starting with 1 to try it out I ended up buying 3 more to round out my trolling spread. The only thing I would say that could be improved is the handle. I've see several people who have upgraded to a larger handle that swear it makes it a much better reel.
Pros-Entry Level Priced -Rugged and sturdy -Large line capacity
Cons-Handle is a bit small

Awsome for Kings and Cobia from the pier
November 19, 2015
If you ever walk to the end of a pier in NC and look at all the pin rig fishermen, 80% of them will be using this reel. I being one of them. It has proven reliability and durability when sitting in harsh saltwater environments for 15+ hours a day. The clicker is nice and loud and the drag is smooth. I've decked numerous kings and cobia. When that cobia gets up close and you need to lock her down this reel does the job.

Great For Kings and Cobia
September 30, 2015
I use this on a stand up rod on my pin rig. Has plenty of line capacity to let the kings run and the drag to fight cobia hard.

What is a good rod for this reel. Tld 15. I plan to use it to troll for stripers and blues.
1 Answer
Go with the Shakespeare 7' 1 piece, MH rod (SHA-0189). It will pair very well with that reel and work well for your application.
