The heavy anodising on the Tiagra makes these reels super resistant to the ravages of salt water, while the click stop drag quadrant permits more precise drag adjustments. The counterbalanced handle falls easily to hand when striking a fish and makes winding easier during the course of a long fight. It’s rubberized ‘tackiness’ combats sweaty palms, which can be a problem during the course of a long fight, especially when it’s warm outdoors.
One of the major rules of Big Game fishing is that the leverage created by an angler in a chair or stand-up harness with a big marlin, tuna or shark on the end of the line places an enormous amount of pressure on the tackle. That’s why Tiagra’s one piece frame is machine-cut from an aluminium tube to a thickness of 7mm. It’s also why Tiagra has A-RB bearings, heavy-duty stainless steel gears, and a two speed shifting mechanism where the pinion and drive gears are continuously meshed.
The series comprises six models from a smaller 12 size right up to the largest 80 size, so there’ll be something for you in the range, no matter your style.
Note: Reels will ship in approximately one week. Not held in store.
