I use these TR-1000LD for everything from Sturgeon fishing to trolling for halibut. For sturgeon, need a very light drag on the initial pickup, them be able to smoothly apply heavier drag when fish starts to run. Halibut like to swim up to the boat, then dive like crazy at boat side, so need to be able to back off the drag as they come up, and keep from snapping terminal tackle on that last run.
These TR-1000d really fill the bill. I am glad that Shimano is still making them.
They are level wind which is great for those that are not that familiar with over head gear, other great features of these reels are they have a generous line capacity and a fantastic drag system.
Great All Rounder.
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
