Product Description

The Shimano Tekota TEK500 Levelwind Reel is an extremely popular reel here at J&H, and is perhaps one of the best pure fluke reels on the market today. The size to power ratio is incredible, as the narrow reel fits easily in the palm of your hand but it puts out an impressive 18# drag thanks to the Dartainium Drag system. A powerful 4.2:1 gear ratio is ideal for bottom fishing, but the 15.8oz weight makes it fishable for hours on end – it’s a combination that’s hard to find in this industry. You can definitely use your TEK500 as a multi-purpose tool, using it for bass in the early morning, fluke in the afternoon, then weakfish in the evening. The TEK500 utilizes aluminum for its frame, sideplates, and spool making for a saltwater-savvy machine that fits almost 400 yards of 40# braid. Super Stopper anti-reverse ensures a solid hookup every time with no back play, and your TEK500 will always be nice and smooth thanks to 4 AR-B ball bearings. The Shimano Tekota TEK500 Star Drag Reel utilizes a state of the art Non-Disengaging levelwind system that’s one of the most reliable in the business.
