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. There is easy access to the reset button, but it is protected against accidental resets.

A must have for Great Lakes trolling

by Upnorthdoug

Outstanding reel for Great Lakes trolling. It makes reeling in those big planer boards easy! Previously I purchased a cheaper trolling reel. The differences between the two are night and day.

Most dependable linecounter made

by Fisher of Men

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.

How deep is deep?

by Murray -

Concerned about ability to handle larger game fish (i.e. tuna, etc)

Not expensive for the quality & features

by Mr Pike -

Superior drag with click detent adjustment allows you to make changes one click at a time. Bulletproof line counter mechanism. Have used them for over 4 years & they are the best.

Great Reel

by Anvage

I have 6 of the 500 models that I use to troll for walleye. I love how smooth they reel, the drag and how the line counters just work. I fished in SE Alaska last summer with an outfitter and he had a dozen of these reels on his boat fishing for salmon and halibut. We talked about how great they were and he said that he'd tried a bunch of different reels over the years and the Tekota's were the only ones that could stand up to the 250 days on the water a year that he put them through.
