Description

Shimano Tekota Levelwind Line Counter Reels feature a wide range of sizes and line capacities, rock solid construction and advanced features. These reels are a great solution for anglers who troll for both fresh and saltwater species. Great Lakes anglers will appreciate the palmable line counter and saltwater enthusiasts will love the durability and strength.

The Tekota is the end result of research, feedback, and time spent on the water. These reels are engineered for the long run with die-cast aluminum frames, smooth and strong drags, sturdy power handles with comfortable Septon grips, oversized clickers and cross-bar forward designs for easy access to the spool. The Tekota is great for use with all trolling techniques including downriggers, divers, planer boards, leadcore and wirelines.

The line counter on these reels was designed for ease of use. The left side plate design makes the reel extremely palmable and puts the counter between your thumb and forefinger for balance and control. The reset button is located for easy access, but is protected against accidental resets.

Don't get carried away with a larger model, use this one. When will you ever need 300 yards of line! Also used for dragging worms or bottom bouncing. Knowing exactly how much line to put out for what the fish want that day, is great knowledge. Nice for trolling behind a kicker or bow mounted trolling motor.

Though this is an expensive reel it is well worth the cost. I have used three other brands of line counter reels and all fell apart within a year or two, esp fishing for Salmon and trout. These take a licking and keep on ticking.
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Durable, Reliable, Smooth Drag System
Cons: Cost
Best Uses: Trolling
