The new Shimano Tekota HG Levelwind Reels gives an old staple an upgrade. The new Tekota HG has a lot in common with the Torium HG. It features a Hagane Body and an S compact sideplate that decreases the size of the sideplate on the non-handle side to make it much more comfortable to fish with. With the Tekota HG, Shimano was able to reduce the sideplate size by 20% while still maintaining the same line capacities. The other major physical changes are the addition of Coreprotect which provides corrosion protection to the body and clutch and sealed ball bearings. Shimano also increased the gear ratio to 6.3:1 or 6.6:1 giving you 35"-38" of line returned per crank of the handle. If you're looking for a great bottom fishing or jigging reel and want a levelwind, get yourself a Shimano Tekota HG Levelwind Reel. For salmon or steelhead anglers, the smaller sizes are perfect for you!

Shimano Tekota HG Levelwind Reels are available 300, 400, 500, 600 and 800 sizes in right handed and left handed models. The 300 and 400 models all have line counters while the 500, 600 and 800 sizes are available with or without line counters. The line counters feature an anti-fogging lens. Fish these reels with mono or braid.
