Tiagra reels feature an innovative hydrothermal drag system that virtually eliminates the drag setting variances that affect todays big game reels. They combine technology with years of expertise to deliver a reel that is truly superior. The new Tiagra 12, 16, 20, 30, 30 wlrs, 50, 50w, 50wrls, 80, and 130 finally bring the strength and reliability of a solid aluminum frame to members of the Tiagra family. Designed to fish heavier line right out of the box, these reels are perfectly suited to long range fishing.
Shimano Tiagra A Featured Highlights

A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings)
Our specially treated stainless steel ball bearings are at least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings.

Forged Aluminum Spool
These spools are made from cold forged aluminum then machined to provide an extremely dense, solid construction that can withstand the heavy drag pressures the reels can apply.

Chrome Plated Sideplate Screws
The sideplate screws are chrome plated to prevent corrosion.

2-Speed Gearing
Uses 2 sets of gears that are always engaged for quick, easy gear ratio changes even under load.

Ratcheting Drag Lever
eliminates the chance of the drag lever backing off due to boat vibration and allows for more precise adjustment.

Twin Disk Drag System
uses two drag disks and a floating drag plate to effectively double the drag surface which provides a wide range of settings and increased durability (TI16 & TI130A only).

The clicker increases the tension on freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites.

The handle grip material, Septon, is soft to the touch and does not get slippery when wet (not available on TI12 & TI16).

This lubrication improves freespool while maintaining protection and durability of moving parts.

Metal Series
With the Metal Series, metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment for increased efficiency and durability.

Machined Aluminum Frame
These frames are machined from solid aluminum pipestock, which makes them incredibly rigid and strong for ultra tight tolerances.

Offset Ergonomic Power Grip
The power grip is offset on multiple axes to allow natural hand, arm and wrist angles to improve comfort and power (not available on (TI12 & TI16).

Ergonomic Power Handle
Comfortable, non-slip grip provides maximum comfort and torque (TI12 & TI16).

Tiagra 50 WLRSA, 80WA, and 130A
May 20, 2019
I purchase the Tiagra 50wlrsa, 80wa, and 130a and all I have to say is that they are perfect. Beginning with the 50, I really like how it isn't so big so I can handle it very well. It is great for stand up fishing. With the 80, I am shocked by all the capacity, I was able to get a 300 yard dacron back and 700 yard braid Topshop. This makes it great for trolling, especially for Marlin. Wrapping up with the 130, the reel has a whopping 99 pounds of drag. Because of this, I can stop the biggest of fish the pull very hard.

Gigantic Reel!

This reel arrived fast. It is heavy and very high quality. I bought it for my husband's 40th Bday and he loved it. Cant wait to catch the big ones on this! This is an investment but will hopefully last a lifetime.

Great Reel for a Variety of Purposes
February 18, 2019
I bought this reel for fishing in south Florida for sharks and marlin. I have it in the 50wlrsa and the 130 size. The reel is very powerful and has a comfortable handle. The two speed mechanism is very easy to shift and the low gear ratio proved to be very helpful when fighting a 300lb bull shark. We also used the 130 on a trip to Abaco and were able to land a 962lb blue marlin. It is a great reel.
ProsPowerful, and comfortable handle
ConsNo cons

Great tuna standup Reel
January 29, 2019
This is a great multipurpose reel. If your a strictly mono kinds of guy, then this is the reel for you. I have this spooled with 80lb Ande and does great for offshore tuna. Overall this is a smooth, strong, and comfortable reel, no complaints.
ProsSmooth reel with a very nice handle.
ConsCould use a little more drag if you are targeting sword fish.

Amazing reel
October 12, 2018
The Tiagra 130 is by far the most durable heavy tackle reel in today’s market. We have several that have hundreds of giant bluefin under their belt without any malfunctions. If you are serious about Big game Fishing then the tiagra 130 is the reel for you.

Classic reel
January 21, 2018
This is a nice reel. Solid, classic design plus functionality. Plenty of line capacity running as a 50 with option to run 80 if you don't need the extra line on mono. Use braid and your capacity is off the chart. Love the handle and ability to shift speeds easily. Take care of it and it should last forever.
ProsHeavy tackle gear for big game fish.
ConsHeavy and costly.

Tiagras are just great reels
December 29, 2017
Tiagras are one of the best reels on the market. I brought two of the 116s to add to my other six Tiagras. They are a bit heavier than many reels but will last a life time.
