By far the most popular TLDII, the Shimano TLD50IILRSA 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is a true beast of a big game reel. Because the TLD50IILRSA has a graphite body, it weighs over two pounds less than its aluminum bodied brother the Tiagra. This translates to a much less fatigued fishing experience, and you’ll be able to stay in the fight long enough to get the job done. Pumping out an impressive 42# of smooth drag, the TLD50IILRSA is an easy match for true monsters of the open ocean – we’re talking blue and black marlin, yellowfin and bluefin tuna, as well as makos, threshers, and other large sharks. You’ll fit a gargantuan 1,000 yards of 100# braid, or about 525 yards of 80# mono, which many anglers choose to go with on their TLD reels. Because this reel is about half the cost of the Tiagra, you can outfit your entire boat with TLDs for a great low price! This reel is perfect for big game trolling, or chunking applications. The large, comfortable power grip handle will give you a crucial tactical advantage over your prey, and the two speed gearing lets you choose whether to rip line in with the high gear, or crank down with power in the low gear. The Shimano TLDII TLD50IILRSA Two Speed Lever Drag Reel has 4 A-RB ball bearings making for a surprisingly smooth retrieve.
