Shimano Tiagra Series A Reels

Offshore Saltwater Reels

The Shimano Tiagra Series A Reels are lever-drag offshore saltwater trolling reels designed to handles the biggest game fish in the world. The Tiagra Series of reels cover the full spectrum of line classes from the Ti-12's 12lb test rating to the 130A's 130lb test rating. If you consider yourself a serious offshore saltwater trolling angler, then this is the reel for you. The right equipment is crucial when targeting the biggest, meanest game fish the ocean has to offer. The Tiagra is constructed from strongest Solid Bar-Stock Aluminum resulting in unparalleled strength and durability. With durability in mind, the gears are all treated and comprised of high grade stainless steel.

The Tiagras all feature Shimano's famous two speed mechanism which offers instant transmission from speed to power and back. The seamless transition provides the angler more control over the fish. The strength of the reel is derived from Shimano's exclusive Hydrothermal Drag System, eliminating surges in drag pressures during those extended battles. The Hydrothermal Drag System constantly cools the drag plates as the friction of the fight heats them.Shimano breaks down the Tiagra A Series of reels one by one:

The Tiagra 20A and Tiagra 30A reels feature traditional style drag curves. These curves allow the angler full use of the Warning position of the lever by providing an area of low drag pressure just above Strike. This is perfect for holding baits in the wake yet has light enough pressure so that when a fish bites it reduces the chance of pulling the hooks out of the fish's mouth. The Tiagra 30A reel's curve is steeper than the 20A, allowing anglers to still reap the benefits of the Warning position yet be able to reach higher drag pressures when fishing heavier lines.

The Tiagra 30WLRSA reel utilizes our L.R.S. style drag curve. This curve allows the reel to fish extremely heavy lines and the drag pressures where the angler is not as concerned about using a Warning position. By starting the curve directly from the Freespool position, it gives the angler a wider variety of useable drag settings.

The Tiagra 50A and Tiagra 50WA reels use traditional drag curves. The curve for both models is identical. This curve allows a slow consistent drag increase from Warning to Strike. It also allows use of a Warning position, by having a steep transition from Freespool to the 1/4 position. This is helpful when trying to hold baits within a trolling pattern yet having a light enough drag to avoid pulling the hook from a biting fish's mouth.

The Tiagra 50WLRSA reel was the first reel to feature an L.R.S. style curve. This allows big game seeking anglers to size down in tackle yet fish the high drag pressures normally associated with large reels. The TI50WLRSA and TI80WA use the same drag curve and can achieve the same drag pressures. So if you prefer smaller reels and braided line, the Tiagra 50WLRSA reel is right for you. For those that use monofilament or desire more line capacity the Tiagra 80WA is the reel of choice.

The Tiagra 130A reel combines the finest materials available with technology and experience gained from years of producing our smaller sized Tiagra reels. Machined from 9mm thick aluminum pipe stock, with a twin disk drag system that can produce up to 99lbs. of drag, the Tiagra 130A reel is a monster to battle monsters.
