Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel! I think the Torium is a great reel for the price. I have had my two Torium 20's for 2 years now and have had no problems. The reel is very study feeling and very smooth. It casts pretty well and works great for all my saltwater applications. Ive done everything from casting small poppers to cocktail blues, to trolling bunker spoons for 40+ pound stripers with this reel and have had great results all around. July 27, 2009
Rated 1 out of 5 by STRIPPED NAKED This reel has given me two things. A big headache and a good fish story. On my last outing, I set the hook on a fish and fought it for about a minute before I heard a small noise and saw a big birds nest forming on my reel. I thumbed the spool to slow it down but the handle would just spin round and round. Not sure what to do at this point so I just let the fish run off about 250-300 yards of line. The fish turned and I got a little bit of slack in the line so we looped it around a cleat and cut the line at the reel. We got another rod that had a Penn on it and tied the line on the spool. I was able to get a few wraps on the spool before we untied the line from the cleat. I then reeled in a bunch of line to catch up to the fish and finally got it in. It was a 32 lb. King. When we got home I tore the reel down and found the gears stripped out. This reel should have been able to handle a fish twice that size. July 11, 2009
Rated 1 out of 5 by Major Disappointment I purchased two Torium20 reels and I must say that these reels have been a major disappointment. I have had problems on a least three occasions with the "anti reverse". Here's the problem...when a good size fish is being fought with some pressure on the drag system the "anti reverse" lets go and the handle goes backwards...that's right completly backwards. I can't tell you the helpless feeling of trying to land a fish when the reel is working against you and eventually causes the loss of the fish. The reels have been serviced by Shimano directly but the problems keep recurring. Another friend has had the same problem multiple times also. In addition to these problems, other buddies have had the Torium 20 & Torium 30 turn into a "coffee grinder" when the main gears seem to wear out . I have documented the "anti reverse" problem to Shimano on several occasions with absolutely no replies which tells me that they are not a very customer service oriented company which is another strike against them. I have phased out my Torium reels and replaced them with equivalent priced Diawa Saltist reels which seem to be a better bang for the buck. Unless you plan on catching only "small little fishies" I strongly recommend that you not buy this product. Good fishing......... May 29, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by great reel I have the tor16 it is great for albcore and thresher sharks, i use it for trolling it works great, and I have used this reel for over sized sturgeon fishing it stops those big sturgeon in there tracks and this reel is bye far the best reel for the money, this reel with shimano rods can't go wrong god bless and work hard and fish harder kris April 21, 2009

A: 
It depends on the size, type of shark, and the crew as much as anything. If your crew will crank the boat up and chase it so that you can recover line then you should be able to wear most sharks down with this reel. If you are fishing from the bank or a charter boat then the bigger the reel the less you will be spooled. My favorite for sea monsters is the Penn Torque because it is like putting a winch on your fishing rod.

Details: 
What is the main difference between the Tor 14 and the Tor 16? I plan on spooling with 50 lb Spectra. Which would work better for casting a 6 ounce swim/jig for Ling Cod off the California coast. What would be a good rod for either of these reels? I presently use a Tor30 spooled with 80 lb spectra for Rock Cod. Thank you

A: 
In the end it's only about line capacity, if I were you I'd get the larger reel (Torium 16) Only because if you want to use it for something else it has the capacity to do this.

A: 
The diferences between the Tor 14 and Tor 16 are the reel weight 15.7oz vs 22.4oz, Maximum Drag Full 13lb vs Full 22lb and braided line capacity 225 yds./65 lb vs 260 yds./80 lb. The Torium 16 would be your best choice when using the 6 oz. lure. Please consider the Offshore Angler™ Ocean Master® IM7 Light Tackle Series Casting Rod, 38-164-302-00.

What Does Line Rec. Mean?

A: 
Recommended amount of line. If you don't put enough line on a reel then it will affect performance. Please note that line that says "Braid" has a smaller diameter so you will need more of it.

A: 
this is a lever drag reel. if you wanted to use this in the surf, you would have to use a kayak to get the baits out, you cannot cast.

A: 
It's not ideal for casting - better for bottom fishing or trolling. For the ultimate in casting heavy baits from the surf, go with either a Shimano Stella or Van Staal spinning reel. Shimano Sustain is also a great choice. A spinning reel will work best for casting heavy baits from the surf.

I throw baits with a pound or pound and a half of lead to hold my sturgeon baits in the heavy current. They cast very well.
