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 counterbalanced handle falls easily to hand when striking a fish and makes winding easier during the course of a long fight. Its 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.
Thats why Tiagras one piece frame is machine-cut from an aluminium tube to a thickness of 7mm (the thickest on the market). Its 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. The series comprises ten models from a smaller 12 size right up to the largest 130 size which means that they will be able to be used for all game fishing expeditions.Twin Disk Drag System (16 & 130 only). Offset Ergonomic Power Grip (20-130). Ergonomic Power Handle (12 & 16 only). (Please note the model displayed in the photo gallery is of the Tiagra 50WA not the similar 50A).
