Rated 2 out of 5 by reelnroll Torium overrated
Bought a 20 and 30. Excellent for casting; I will give it that. Otherwise nothing to brag about. The stardrag is so sensitive the slightest touch will move it. There isn't a better feeling than your drag LOOSENING while trying to reel in a fish....is there ??? The Torium is a big lemon for Shimano. This is coming from someone who owns four other Shimano reels and rods and has no complaints with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 Value for your money
I was hunting a high speed reel for deep water jigging in the middle grounds. Picked up a torium 30 spooled with 300 yards of 80lb power pro. Love it, puts everything in the boat that i can hook. Used to use it for snapper and my 6/0 penn for grouper, now i just take my toriums. Wonderful reels for the value

We were after Red Snapper about 30 miles offshore from Panama City Beach. That's what my 17 yr old son said as he landed a 35 LB Grouper using a Torium #16 reel spooled with 25LB fluoro hybrid line mounted on a 15 to 30 LB Kingfish rod .
Snapper sometimes have a timid bite. Torium, being light, is easy on the arms and wraists so you to feel those little bumps at 160 plus feet. The high speed line recovery is a tremendous plus as you are constantly winding up to check your bait. Comfort, high speed, smooth drag, plenty spool capacity, and strength to land bottom fish...perfect!
