The Shimano Tiagra ‘A’ series has been the bench mark for game reels for a number of years. The range feature a slightly darker, heavier gold anodising, a drilled drag quadrant with a drag curve better suited to Australian conditions, and a new design rubberised power handle.

The heavier anodising makes these reels even more resistant to the ravages of salt water, while the click stop drag quadrant permits more precise drag adjustments. The counterbalanced handle falls easily to hand when striking a fish and makes winding easier during the course of a long fight. It’s rubberised ‘tackiness’ combats sweaty palms, which can be a problem during the course of a long fight, especially when fishing more tropical waters.

Another major rule of game fishing is that the leverage created by an angler in a chair or stand-up harness with a big marlin, tuna or shark on the end of the line places an enormous amount of pressure on the tackle. That’s why Tiagra’s one piece frame is machine-cut from an aluminium tube to a thickness of 7mm (the thickest on the market). It’s also why Tiagra has A-RB bearings, heavy-duty stainless steel gears, and a two speed shifting mechanism where the pinion and drive gears are continuously meshed.
