The Shimano Tiagra TI50A 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is the most basic 50 sized reel in the Tiagra line, but still has more than enough grit to handle large pelagic species like tuna and marlin. Probably used mostly for trolling up striped and white marlin, dorado, and yellowfin, you can also use your TI50A for chunking and live bait tuna fishing applications. Because the TI50A is a narrow spooled reel, levelwinding is much easier especially when you’re playing tug of war with something weighing a couple hundred pounds. Anglers also love this reel for sharking with braid – it doesn’t have enough capacity for monofilament, but the cold-forged aluminum spool will hold ample braid to the tune of 865 yards of 150# test. You’ll probably be running about 600 yards with plenty of room for a mono topshot, but that’s completely up to you. The heavy duty lever drag system of the TI50A puts out a hefty 38# drag which can stop broad shouldered fish in their tracks – or should I say their wake? Either way, it’s a brute that has been on board tournament boats for years. The Shimano Tiagra TI50A Two Speed Lever Drag Reel is made in Japan using only the finest quality machined aluminum that makes the reel almost bulletproof – you’ll be able to effectively use your TI50A for years and years to come.
