The Shimano TLD20 Lever Drag Reel is a solid option for anglers who need a workhorse reel that’ll take a beating year after year, but don’t want to part with a mortgage payment to get it. Coming in at just under 160 clams, the TLD20 gives you a lot of power per dollar spent – you’re looking at 23# drag which is easily adjusted via the ergonomic lever handle. The TLD20 has a very powerful 3.6:1 gear ratio, making this reel the bottom fisherman’s dream! You’ll be able to easily target big bottom species like grouper, cod, snapper, tilefish, and more with your TLD20. If you choose to partake in some light trolling or chunking applications, the TLD20 will be more than up to the task; believe me, more than a fair share of cow bass and tarpon have been felled at the hands of the TLD20. A traditional handle will give you a nice feel when hooked up, and because it’s a graphite bodied reel you’ll be able to fish it for hours on end. The Shimano TLD20 Lever Drag Reel has a pretty hefty capacity – you’re looking at 660 yards of 80# braid, or 360 yards of 40# mono (if you’re using a low-diameter mono such as Berkley Pro-Spec).
