Shimano Tekota A Levelwind Line Counter Reel is a series of robust salt and freshwater popular with charter captains for their durability and performance. The Tekota A Shimano line counter reel features advanced CoreProtect water-resistance technology to prevent corrosion, a loud clicker, and an easy-to-replace anti-fogging lens. Premium S A-RB shielded anti-rust ball bearings reduce the possibility of salt or sand infiltration.

Compared to the original Shimano Tekota line counter reels, the Tekota A trolling reel series is 20% smaller with ergonomic S-Compact Body design and supplies a powerful Cross Carbon Drag for more stopping power to subdue the hardest fighting fish. The battle-tested reel is excellent for all trolling techniques, including downriggers, divers, planer boards, lead core, and wirelines. Legendary for its durability and strength, the Shimano Tekota A Series Reels ensure you have all the power you need when you hook into the big ones!

 
  • CoreProtect
    • The concept of CorePotect is simple: to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. Three critical reel areas require protection: the roller clutch, the body, and the line roller.
  • HAGANE Body
    • The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
  • S A-RB
    • These bearings have been through the same process as Shimano's A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
  • S-Compact Body
    • The palming side plate is 25% smaller than the A-Side plate
  • Cross Carbon Drag
    • Provides a wider range of drag settings compared to traditional drag materials, offering Shimano's smoothest drag performance with increased durability

          I have been using these for the last 3 years. You get what you pay for. The drag is easy to adjust and they are just smooth. I will be gradually replacing all of my line counters with Shimanos as long as the better half agrees.

          I HAVE USED THE NEW TEKOTA ON SEVERAL BOTTOM FISHING OUTINGS AND ALSO ON THE SURF ITS CASTS WELL. A VERY STRONG SMOOTH REEL. ALL I CAN SAY IT HANDLES BUSINESS.

          In comparison to its competitors this reel has lower mass, a smoother finely adjustable drag, and finer craftsmanship, at a very competitive price. Freespool is controlled by a side lever rather than a thumb button, so it takes two hands to let line go, but for most applications this is no big deal. There is enough room on the spool for hundreds of yards of monofilament, braid or lead core line. I am using it for trolling lead core and with 70 yards of that plus about 100 yards of braid as backing the spool is properly filled. The 500 series is compact but extremely strong - I'd only recommend the 600 series for exclusively Chinook trolling or bottom fishing for large prey like halibut.
