Shimano Torium Star Drag Reels are new to Shimano's Torium series reels. They are compact, rigid and powerful saltwater conventional reels with excellent castability and durability - a must for saltwater. Many top anglers use them bottom fishing or live-bait fishing as they are built for these extreme applications.

TackleDirect has right-hand and left-hand models with either an egg handle or power handle and several gear ratio options. All of them have specially treated anti-rust bearings and cross carbon drag that both result in the smoothest runs you've experienced. There's nothing conventional about this reel that comes with a satisfaction guarantee. Call or email us with any product questions.
Shimano Torium Star Drag Conventional Reel Features:
S Compact Body: Power, rigidity, durability results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand. The B-side sideplate is all one piece, contributing to both rigidity and in-the-hand palming comfort. The A-side sideplate has the handle, drag adjustment and cast control knob.
E.I.: This is the second layer of surface treatment that is added after the anodizing process. This treatment is forced into any micro-sized surface impurities, giving salt no place to adhere thus preventing corrosion.
Cross Carbon Drag: The ideal material for the high drag pressure setting, with smoothness and consistent performance.
