The Shimano TLD Conventional Reel has a clever combination of cutting-edge design and a reasonable price that has made it a mainstay of the Shimano line for over two decades. The 2-Speed model is extremely popular with anglers looking for high-performance, no-nonsense overhead fishing reels. This reel features a graphite frame, shedding unnecessary weight for even greater control. Combined with an aluminum spool, the TLD 2-Speed reel is extremely tough and can handle big, hard-fighting predators such as marlin, sharks, and tuna.
The TLD 2-Speed is a real workhorse when it comes to game fishing. It features a long-range spool with a greater drag curve. The result is a higher drag power for heavier lines and bigger fish. Combine this with its powerful gearing, large spool capacity, and harness lugs and you have a reel that delivers unparalleled effectiveness. This 2-speed reel features two gear ratios: a high gear and a low gear for pure cranking power.
