Shimano TLD Lever Drag
Shimano's TLDs are an iconic range of overhead lever drag reels. Shimano's durable and enduring TLD reels are arguably the most versatile lever drags in the world. Great for light to medium tackle game fishing, they can also be cast. All TLDs feature one-piece graphite/titanium bodies, 4 A-RB bearings, stainless steel gears and main shaft, stainless steel reel foot, ball bearing titanium drags, and comfortable, easy-to-grasp power handles with torpedo knobs. They come in three sizes: 15, 20 and 25.
TLD two speed reels have long been the choice for anglers requiring the reliability and benefits of reduced weight from a graphite-framed overhead, coupled with a lower gear option for shifting stubborn fish. Tolerances are tight for use with braided line like Power Pro, the oversize handles on the 50 and 50LRS are the same as the Tiagra overheads, and chrome plated brass handle shanks give them real cranking power.
