The Shimano Tekota TEK800LC Levelwind Line Counter Reel is a beast of a reel – 24# of drag thanks to a Dartainium Drag system, powerful 4.2:1 gear ratio, and the capacity for well over 600 yards of 80# braid all make the TEK800LC perfect for targeting monster bottom fish. The attached line counter will tell you exactly how much line is out (or how much more work you’re going to have to do) and is perfect for fishing thermocline lines, or when jigging a certain body of fish at a specific depth. You can adjust the handle on your TEK800LC for even more power if you wish, and you can use your TEK800LC for heavy duty wire line trolling applications as well. That’s right – a levelwind reel you can run wire line on! Shimano’s Super Stopper anti-reverse system ensures a solid hookup, making sure your offering is driven home in one swift stroke. The Shimano Tekota TEK800LC Star Drag Line Counter Reel is used for large, aggressive bottomfish – think halibut, cod, grouper and snapper. You can use it on offshore wrecks, oil rigs, even the shelf when targeting tilefish (on non-electric trips of course).
