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).

The 30W Tiagra is my go to reel for midshore NJ Tuna trolling and chunking. Super high Shimano quality. Plenty of line capacity and drag for our mid shore 20 to 100 lb bluefin and yellowfin and the two speed capability and size / weight make it a great reel for pulling in side trackers and spreader bars in a hurry when you need to clear lines.

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.

Which rod is recommended for Tiagra 130A?
1 Answer
The Shimano TZCSTXH2SC Terez Stand-Up Curve Butt Rod would be a good match for the Tiagra 130A.
