Featuring an open top crossbar design, the Shimano Tyrnos 2 Speed Reel is a good choice for saltwater fishing. Expanding on the popular Tyrnos line, this fishing reel comes with selectable power or high speed gear ratio. This saltwater fishing reel is made from die cast aluminum to withstand daily use. Graphite side plates used in the construction provide strength to the fishing reel while reducing the weight. This Shimano fishing reel rips jigs fast and then puts them in low gear for fast angling strength. As the two sets of gears are always meshed, you can make changes even under load. The lever drag system in this gear ratio fishing reel provides easy, on the fly adjustments. The ratcheting lever drag also reduces lever movements that could be caused by the vibration of the boat. The extra-long shank in this reel provides an ergonomic power grip. This Shimano Tyrnos 2 Speed Reel can be used with Mono, Fluorocarbon and PowerPro lines.
