A commercial grade tuna hunting menace, the Shimano Tiagra A TI80WA 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel packs a punch that could one-hit-quit Rocky Balboa before he even knew he was fighting. Seriously, this beast has the line capacity to go toe-to-toe with some of the heaviest hitters the ocean can spew forth – we’re talking marlin, tuna, swordfish, large makos and threshers, and goliath grouper. You’ll fit 2 kilometers of 200# braid on your TI80WA; and you know that once you start measuring your line capacity in kilometers, there isn’t a fish in the ocean that this reel can’t handle. The TI80WA is a wide bodied, wide spooled reel that is best utilized either in the fighting chair of out of the gunwale – it’s a little tough to stand up with but it can be done if you’re related to Dennis Braid, Frank Mundus, or perhaps Captain Ahab. This reel is constructed using heavy duty cold forged aluminum making this thing essentially bulletproof – they will last you for many hard seasons, and still be in flawless working condition even after they’ve subdued literally tons of pelagic predators. You’ll see TI80WA’s gracing the holders of the most successful commercial and tournament fisherman, and for good reason; the TI80WA pumps out a powerful 44# max drag which is sure to stop monster fish dead in their tracks.
