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.

Great Reel (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: Trolling
Comments: 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.

Great Reel Overall (from prior model)
Pros: Smooooth drag, great quality, loud clicker.
Cons: Line counter not accurate with braid.The 300 does not have power handle.
Best Uses: Trolling, vertical jigging.
Comments: Have been using these for the past three years and they still perform as well as the first day out. I see the only drawback is the line counter isn't as accurate when using braid because of the diameter difference. After awhile you just adjust by the seeing the lure depth on the sonar as compared to the number on the line counter and formulate your actual depth with the line counter depth. Other than that it is engineered well.

Perfect (from prior model)
Comments: Holds plenty of line. Counter is accurate. Light yet sturdy. Very smooth. Built well.
Ne. Mn. Canada
Excelent! (from prior model)
Comments: 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.

Most dependable linecounter made (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Durable, Reliable, Smooth Drag System
Cons: Cost
Best Uses: Trolling
Comments: 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.
