Shimano Tiagra Fishing Reel Features

  • Hagane Body: The body is produced from highrigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rocksolid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
  • ARB: The secret of longterm rotation performance is to prevent any form of rust, corrosion or oxidisation of the bearings, which can cause a reduction in the reels performance over time. Shimano ARB bearings are the answer to this and are fitted as standard on most Shimano freshwater reels and on all Shimano saltwater models.
  • Waterproof Drag: Using special protection gaskets, the drag is protected against the intrusion of water for more consistent drag performance.
  • Cold Forged Aluminium: Cold Forged aluminium is used for some 'round' reels, fly reels and is also used for many types of spool. Made from one single piece of aluminium Cold Forging produces great strength.
  • Machined Aluminium: Machined aluminum is used for the very best multiplier reels where precision, strength and lightness are very important.
  • Clicker System: Increases the tension on Freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites.
  • 2-Speed Gearing: This shifting mechanism is designed so that gearing changes are quick and easy, even when fighting a fish. The low gear ratio used for highpower retrieves is selected by pushing the button on the base of the handle. Return to the highspeed ratio by sliding the release button along the handle shank. By using two sets of gears, the drive and pinion gears are always engaged. There is no gear meshing during the shift.
