The Shimano TLD15 Lever Drag Reel is a great low cost workhorse of a reel that’s perfect for either heavy bottomfishing applications or light trolling. You can target a large variety of species including cod, grouper, tilefish, pollock, stripers, snapper, skipjack, etc. This is one of the most rugged graphite bodied reels ever built, and will hold up for years of heavy use. The TLD15 puts out 22# of drag which is transferred to the spool via an oversized lever that’s very user friendly. The 4.0:1 gear ratio can be used for light jigging techniques, but it’s definitely more of a trolling or bottom fishing reel. The braid ready spool can accommodate 500 yards of 65# braid. The TLD15 comes with a comfortable, counter balanced handle and will rotate very smoothly thanks to the 4 AR-B ball bearings that grace the interior of this reel. The Shimano TLD15 Lever Drag Reel is lightweight, coming in at only 18.6 ounces, and you’ll be able to comfortably fish this reel for hours on end.
