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 the Charter Special or star drag on the TRN. And you can even use both reels for light saltwater applications. Overall, it just makes the whole process a lot less complicated.

great little reel for the money. Perfect for light tackle fishing. Kids love the level wind. SO do I. Less time spent fixing fouled line. Recommend it .

Good Disposable Reel

Good reel but not that durable. The level wind system is fragile. Mine did break. Was easier to just buy a new reel.

Looks great, holds lots of lead core

Nice light reel, holds more line than the 100G model. Can't wait to try it out!

Nice and light

Nice and light reel, looks great. I will be using 27 lb lead core braid on it to start as a trolling setup for striped bass. Only issue is the handle sucks so I ordered a nicer one from Shimano directly (that is for another reel... check youtube reviews to find it)

Great pier fishing reel
December 14, 2020
Bought this reel awhile back and love it. I might be a little bias cause I am a Shimano fanboy, but it is just what I was looking for in a pier/jetty fishing reel. Not to bulky but small enough to cast far as I need it to go. Feels sturdy enough to handle big to small fish on. I put 30# Powerpro braid on and cast a smooth as ever. Would recommend to any one in the market for one of these reels.

1st Levelwind Reel

I do quite a bit of bottom fishing and I wanted to add a conventional/levelwind reel to my arsenal. This Shimano TR100-G is just the right size!

I bought a second set of Triton 100/200 G's - Great reels!
July 30, 2020
Fantastic reels for the buck. I've caught more than 50 king salmon up to 35 lbs. on these reels. Almost all of them mooching bait. Great for light trolling including inland trout. These reels worked super on big slamin' coho salmon with dipsy divers in Alaska. They also work great for California halibut and striped bass. Will do rockfish but not recommended for bigger ling cod (in the rocks). Keep in mind the Triton's are more a finesse type reel. They do great on fast fish that run higher in the water column or over clean bottom. They don't do that well on powerful bottom fish that you need to turn or bulldog out of the rocks etc. I spool it with Trilene Big Game mono in 17 or 20 lb. test and usually pair it with a longer/limber 8 foot down rigger type rod. You can pay a lot more and not get much more in performance. I'm usually surrounded by expensive reels on the salmon charter boats and these "man in the grey suit" Triton's hold their own with great results!

Love the reel hate the handle
November 19, 2019
I'm not a fan of this handle, personally if they made it a rubber or round handle knob this reel would be my go to reel for a budget setup that I wouldn't be so sad if it flew out my hands into the ocean lol

broke down with 2nd bluefish
June 13, 2019
I bought this for my grandson with a lightweight tsunami rod and after a couple of medium bluefish the level wind cracked and quit working. With a fish on, the reel felt like a toy, none of the solidity of a decent reel. Penn, here I come.
I have a Shimano Torium also and I have had lots of problems with it,- and I take care of the equipment.

I purchased this reel as part of an all around bottom fishing set-up for the western L.I. SOUND. I have it matched to a Tsunami Classic rod rated for 15-25 lb. line. I use 30 lb. braid. This to me is a great set-up for the fluke, porgies, sea bass and blackfish, as well as the ocassional bluefish, striper and weakfish that I may encounter in the areas I fish. It's not a $ 200 reel but for a guy who bottom fishes once or twice a week or on a party boat, its just what you need at a great price. I hope Shimano continues to make this reel for years to come.

Heck I've done 2 video reviews on this reel...!!!
April 13, 2015
And weekly the Youtube reviews I have done on my channel still have me answering questions. NOTHING.....really NOTHING in a star drag levelwind reel can compare to plain simple usefullness of this reel. It's bullet proof. I own now 24 of these and have them in service on my charter boats and they have never let me down. They catch 100 pounders as easily as a 3 pounder. I sent Shimano a letter once saying. "PLEASE do not drop the ball and stop making these reels...or I'll freak!"

No reel will keep on reeling in fish as good as these.

Video reviews:

  • I can break one down to "parade rest" in a NY minute and have it cleaned and ready to go in minutes. I'm talking all apart!
  • No bearings except one in the handle to worry about. Grease them do what ever you want! Dunk them in saltwater and then dunk them in fresh and keep on fishing.
  • If you want glitz and glamour and want to impress someone then move on. If you want to impress someone with intelligence then buy these. No clicking adjustment on drag star is a extra I wish they had. Other than that......I wish they came in a Triton 50 size, half as small as the 100 size.
  • I'd buy 24 more if I could get even smaller ones.

So I have a sabiki rod made by Eat my tackle.  They told me it works best with a bait caster or conventional type reel.  All my tackle is Shimano and would prefer to keep it that way.  However never really used a sabiki rod before so recommendations are good too!.  Would this be s good fit?  If yes which model?  Thanks for your time!
1 Answer

That sabiki rod can handle any baitcaster / conventional reel and the Shimano Triton Graphite Levelwind reel will work fine with that rod for catching bait.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
