Versatile leverdrag reel for casting, trolling and live bait fishing
Ad-hoc King setup
Fishes like a $500 TOL reel. Silky smooth drag. Purchased for a balloon rig to be used on pier; easily accommodates 1500 yards of 20lb braid. Hooked 150lb Black-tip shark; ran off 300 yards and I locked him down. Fish proceeded to strip off line, and the drag was just as smooth as it was in the strike position.
If you have never owned a lever drag reel, try this one; but be fore-warned, you'll sell every star drag reel you own. Dollar for dollar, this is by far the best 4/0 reel I have owned.
Fish smart, fish safe, and fish some more!

Great all around reel.
I picked up a TLD20 for a rod I picked up on my way to go striper fishing. Was very impressed with the way this jewel can cast. Hooked a few nice stripers that night, but it really proved it's worth to me on a nice 43 pounder that took several long hard runs, drag was incredibly smooth, when the fish made it's last hard run to go under the pier I locked him down at full drag and pulled him right out. I will be buying a few more very soon.

This and the penn senator and baja are the best salt water reels ever made! They are also made in So Cal. This is a smooth tough reel. It can catch fish like yellowtail, but it also can handle striped marlin.
