Product Description

The flagship reel of the line, the Shimano Tekota TEK600 Levelwind Reel is our best-selling Shimano reel here at J&H – and that says a lot because we sell a LOT of Shimanos. A traditional conventional levelwind reel, the TEK600 is powerful yet balanced so you can use it as your all-purpose, every day reel. Perfect for everything from salmon to fluke, from musky to stripers, from lakers to redfish….you get it. Whether it’s inshore saltwater species or large freshwater fare you prefer, the TEK600 is well suited for the task. The Dartainium Drag system puts out a surprisingly strong 18# drag, while the braid-ready spool will hold over 300 yards of 65# braid so you can feel comfortable targeting large powerful saltwater predators. If its bottom fishing you prefer, feel free to target cod, pollock, grouper, snapper, blackfish, haddock, etc. The TEK600 has a powerful 4.2:1 gear ratio which is a great mid-range ratio perfect for both bottom fishing and jigging applications. The TEK600 can easily handle large stripers and redfish too – use it for cut bait applications or for tossing pitch baits like spot or mullet. The Shimano Tekota TEK600 Star Drag Reel has a Non-Disengaging levelwind system that is one of the best in the industry, and is made using aluminum for its spool, frame, and sideplates for increased toughness.
