The Shimano Torium HG TOR16HGA Star Drag Reel is an amazing addition to the Shimano family – one that’s sure to quickly become a top seller here at J&H and for good reason. The TOR16HGA is currently (the 14 is coming down the road) the smallest and most agile reel in the Torium HG family, and thanks to Shimano’s “S” Compact Body design, the TOR16HGA packs a serious punch in a small package. High Efficiency construction utilizes bigger and stronger gearing to prevent added flex during a serious battle, and the one piece frame and stamped sideplate help with this as well. The result is a powerful, incredibly high speed (46 inches/crank) jigging and bottom fishing machine. The TOR16HGA puts out a sturdy 24# drag thanks to the all-new Cross Carbon Drag system that’s designed to stay cool under pressure. This is a Metal Series reel, featuring EI corrosion resistant anodizing that’s ideal for heavy saltwater use. The Shimano Torium HG TOR16HGA Star Drag Reel is a capable diamond jigging reel when targeting large stripers and blues, but can also be used for yellowtail, all kinds of jack, and some football sized tuna. You can use your TOR16HGA for bottom dwelling species as well, especially in deep water applications where changing bait is a chore – the 6.2:1 gear ratio will get those rigs back up lightening quick for a fresh bait.
